Looking for a caterer serving the West Island

MikeyMadness Nov 10, 2013 09:03 PM

Setting up a funeral and looking to get a selection from sandwiches, potato/pasta salads, fruit/veggie plates and deli meat (think antipasto) and the likes.

I know it's just your basic stuff, but I would like good quality and good tasting food. I know the funeral home will provide some suggestions, but I figure I'll get better insight here. If anyone has any recommendations, I would be grateful.

Thanks in advance.

    I always recommend Robert Alexis. Catered our wedding, as well as some sandwiches and salads at my in-laws before the ceremony (the live in the West). http://www.robert-alexis.com/traiteur...

    Avec Plaisirs is also nice, they've catered numerous office events for us: http://www.avecplaisirs.com/en/

      21 Century Food is very good and have a lot of healthy options:

      They also have a restaurant open for lunch.

        So, I have some leftover food (sandwich platters, coleslaw, a variety of "swirl" tortilla appetizers). Anyone know of a charity that could use them, again, in the West Island would be preferable.

        And thanks to all who replied above, it was appreciated.

          Hi there,

          Who did you end up going with?

            The funeral home had recently changed their in-house caterer, so we gambled and went with them. It turned out just fine. Sandwich, cheese and bite size tortilla roll platters, along with coleslaw and potato salads, and smoked salmon rosettes, and melon and prosciutto appetizers.

            Turns out the caterer is Chuck's restaurant, from the Golf Dome in Kirkland. There was a lot of food, and it was all well received. I'll probably try out the restaurant because of it.

            West Island Mission

            Or West Island Assistance Fund

              not the charity, but the caterer.
