Buffet Catering San Diego

Buffet Menu

Shopping for a caterer can be a frustrating experience. Most catering companies in San Diego don’t post any pricing information on their website about their buffet dinner service, encouraging you to call and talk to a sales person. At TOAST, we would like to make your shopping experienece as easy as possible.

Our typical buffet catered weddings can range anywhere from $55 to $85 per person all inclusive (including staff, china, linens, flatware, glassware, sales tax and any other expenses related to provide our services), depending on venue, event length and number of guests. The following buffet wedding sample menu features tray-passed hors d’oeuvres (for one hour) followed by choice of one salad, two main entrées and two side dishes.
