Catering ideas for baby shower

I'm hosting a baby shower, and the mother-to-be doesn't have much of an idea of what she wants for food. She says she wants finger foods, light sandwiches etc. And she's craving fruits and veggies a lot, so she says she'd like that incorporated as well. Things she doesn't want: Thai, Mexican, or Indian. I suspect she doesn't want anything fried, but then she mentioned she would love grilled cheese sandwiches (but fancied up), so I guess even slightly greasy stuff would be acceptable.

Anyone have ideas? I was thinking Market Street or Central Market for catering, but then I run out of ideas.

  1. Celebrity Cafe & Bakery also comes to mind. Oh, and Corner Bakery.

      Great idea! I've eaten at Celebrity once and I think she'll like the food. Corner Bakery is definitely a good backup if Celebrity doesn't work out.

          I like Two Sisters as well, but since what she's asking for is so simple, my first thought was Central Market. I'd do the grilled cheese myself ... CM could prep them to make it easier. And of course, that means any cheese you want ... Btw, that Stonewall Kitchen dark sweet mustard with whole seeds is pretty great with grilled cheese.

        2. Festive Kitchen is also great. Two locations. Snider Plaza and Campbell Road in Richardson.
