Halifax - Gourmet delivery?

shopwinedinefine Oct 22, 2010 06:47 PM

My brother attends Dalhousue/lives in residence. I would like to have a gourmet basket delivered to him - I was hoping for cheese....?

    I'm looking for recommendations for gourmet delivery, as well, but rather than delivery of a basket, I'd like a delivery service of ready-made meals. I'd like to be able to order some healthy lunches and dinners that require only reheating or other minimal effort for a very busy boyfriend with a particularly busy couple of weeks coming up. Has anyone heard of a good company that does this in Halifax? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

      I would try Pete's Frootique-t hey have a ready-made section that is great...and I have never had them say no to a request.

        Thanks for the suggestion. Pete's is a grocery store, I gather? I don't see anything on their website about the kind of ready-made meals they carry, so I'll call them and see what they can deliver for me.

          It is a grocery store, but with only two locations. I buy most of my groceries at the Bedford location, where I often see Pete. The have great service, and the staff really makes an effort to remember my name and my kids' names. I would be surprised if they couldn't accomodate your request. Good luck :)

      Several of my family members (but not me directly) have had good luck with Pete's

        There is this place:
        though I have never tried them. Pete's also does food baskets.
