Ideas for Meeting in Canada

Two members from our India Office will be attending an afternoon meeting in Canada the day after they arrive. ( It will be 1:30 AM their time). I would like to serve them something to eat and drink.
What would you recommend? We would like them to feel welcome.
We would normally have coffee or tea and some cookies or snack. Would this be acceptable?
Yes. When I was on business trips to India (New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, etc.), we invariably get served cookies with our coffee/tea. We were *never* served any savoury snacks in the afternoon.
Be careful if you're serving any savoury snacks - most Indians are vegetarians, and they generally abhor any pork products, whether they are Hindus or Muslims.
The only additional advice I would have is to ask whether they eat eggs. If they are strict vegetarians, it might be an issue.
