Caterer in Manalapan area

My sister is having a party for her son's Communion next week, and looking to cater it. She usually uses Tuscany in Manalapan and they have always been great. She wanted to know if anyone has used anyone else in the area and been very pleased.

Just some ideas...thanks!

  1. I've used Pinch of Thyme catering several times and was never disapointed. Great food and very reliable.

    1. My sis LOVES the Palm Plaza !! She's catered some parties there, 100 people or so...
      real good food, down to earth prices

        Thanks, Ellen. Where is this place?

          It's on Rt. 34 just past Morristown Rd. in Old Bridge, about 1/4 mile on the left before the Marketplace Outlet mall. There's an out of business Sunoco on the corner & the Palms Plaza is in a strip mall just past it. We went to a 40th birthday there & were very impressed by the food & service.

            We have also been to parties at Palms Plaza and thought that the food was very good. Our dentist uses the catering for summer barbeques and he highly recommended them.

              Your dentist knows good & fun food, Charmel !
              I noticed that the Palms Plaza "will come to you" to do backyard BBQ catering!
              They will bring the crew right to your

              My sis used the Palms Plaza for my nephews Bar Mitzvah...
              (my uncle is still talking about how good their mini hot dogs on a bun tasted!)
              (I agree!)

                My friend served those mini hot dogs at her party. They were delicious. I have to admit when we were invited to the party, we were skeptical cause of the location, but once we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised. It's extremely deceiving from the outside.

                1. re: Jerzeegirl

                  so it's now confirmed: those Palm Plaza mini dogs are a signature item!!!
