High tea

While the day of the Ritz, cheese 'n gherkin combo is long gone (thank God), parties across the nation still stand afflicted by a bad case of TFF (Terrible Finger Food). Those soggy mini pies, the mini samosas, the mini spring rolls—you know what we’re talking about.

Well, luckily we’re here with the solution. A shortlist of Sydney's best catering services, with everything from salad platters, cheesesteaks, booze, and delicate French canapés, these caterers have you (and your party) covered. Here are Sydney's best caterers. 


Dreaming of a private chef in your own home-type scenario? Gathar is your dream come true. This innovative foodie platform connects talented local chefs and cooks with those of us who lack talent in the kitchen or the time to whip up something super impressive for our nearest and dearest. With the Gathar Marketplace, you can completely design your own dinner party mood. Select a private chef or grazing table, and then choose your menu. With options like "Parisian Date Night for two" and  "Elevated BBQ" in the mix, this will 100% impress your guests. Suss it all out here

The Grounds

The Grounds is one of Sydney's most popular cafes. Though since the sprawling Alexandria venue opened, The Grounds has become more of a foodie empire in Sydney, with restaurants, events, out-of-this-world immersive pop-ups, a wedding venue, and a top-tier catering service all included in its enormous offering. Designed for parties and events, The Grounds offers a range of DIY party packs to suit your home events—from a TGIF party pack to a girls' night in pack and a games night pack. You can also shop ready-made meals for breakfast or lunch. Each catering pack is available for pick up at The Grounds Alexandria home. More info is here

Peter Rowland

While Peter Rowland covers a range of large-scale events across the country, they also know how to cater for a killer festive party. From establishing the right look for your bash to the dreaded end-of-night clean-up, they’re all over it. They can even personalize a scrumptious menu to wow your guests. We're already drooling over what's on offer—think parmesan goujeres with goat's curd, crushed peas and mint, caramelised pork belly with pressed watermelon and Vietnamese mint, and gloriously oozy marshmallow-centred chocolate pudding topped with nougat cream to finish.

Bespoke Caterers

With over 20 years of experience in the catering biz, Bespoke Caterers know what's up. These guys specialise in high-end private events with a range of classic catering options on offer, all of which can be tailored to suit your event and budget. Bespoke ticks off everything from cocktail canapés, to buffet dining services, and a full-blow a la carte set-up with your own waiter and your own personal chef. Bespoke is also able to host a number of experiences too—like wine tastings and cocktail masterclasses. More info is here
