Cater For Easter Sunday Brunch in Philadelphia with Waterfront Gourmet

Fantastically Fresh

At Waterfront Gourmet, we believe that fresh food is the best food. Nothing is quite so satisfying as enjoying a meal that is more than scrumptious; you can taste the freshness in every bite. Our customizable menu offers something to fit any event, but whatever you choose, you can trust that it is prepared with only the highest quality fresh ingredients. Our foods are real, farm fresh, never frozen, and delivered every day. With so much ripe produce available to us in these beautiful summer months, there is no better time than to dig into a fresh meal. On a hot summer day, what’s better than homemade guacamole or a seasonal fruit tray? And we know this 4th of July is going to be H-O-T!

Something For Everyone

Variety is the spice of life and we understand that, when it comes to food preferences, there is a wide spectrum of tastes. Our diverse menu offers something to please every palate! From savory soups and sandwiches to succulent salads and fruit trays, we aim to provide something to tickle every fancy. For dietary restrictions or preferences, we can offer vegan and vegetarian options. If you are catering for children as well as adults (with a family holiday like Independence Day, you probably are), we have plenty of options that the little ones are sure to enjoy. We provide classic summertime favorites, such as seasonal fruit trays, salads, sandwiches, and more. Get that picnic vibe going, whether you opt to chow down on a cheese plate, fresh veggies, a hoagie, or a little bit of everything! And who could forget dessert? Don’t waste your time trying to put together a variety of dessert options for your Fourth of July BBQ, let us help you make it easy – and still delicious! We offer an array of freshly baked goodies that your sweet tooth will appreciate, including brownies, cookies, cupcakes, and more. We’re hungry just thinking about it; is your mouth watering yet?

Quick and Convenient

We generally cater within the 19102, 19104, 19106, 19123, and 19146 zip codes, with free delivery included for all catering orders! We can create a custom holiday catering menu for you to fit get-togethers and events both large and small. Throwing a big mid-week holiday bash? We have you covered! Planning to enjoy a smaller, more intimate backyard party with family and friends? We’re excited to prepare a perfect holiday menu for that, too. We can work with you to meet your needs and select the best order for you and your guests.
