Buffet & Family Style Menu

Shopping for a caterer doesn't have to be a any different than shopping for a restaurant. You should be able to see the menu options and pricing estimate before contacting the caterer to see if they will be a good fit for you. At Toast Catering we pride ourselves in being easy to work with, which is why we're one of the only catering companies in San Diego not playing games and showing pricing on our website. Below is some of our Buffet Dinner Service menu options. We can customize a special buffet menu that's just right for your guests, your event and of course, you!

While the exact pricing will depend upon your specific menu, location, and number of guests, we can say that at Toast Catering, a typical buffet catered wedding or event will range anywhere from $60 to $85 per person, which includes many things others will charge extra for: bartenders, tables, chairs, linens, glassware, sales tax and any other expenses related to provide our services. Plus did we mention we cook the food fresh on site! Which most caterers within our price range don't and will bring the food fully cooked to your event.
