Having previously been impressed by catering from Avo Jabourian’s Munch Box in June it was at the start of a fairly big day that the office decided to entrust the Restaurant with Breakfast, an arrival time of 7:30am easily met and the spread again showing well across a variety of items.
Opting for Buffet-style service in this case as opposed to an item-by-item order, portions sized to fit increments of five attendees at approximately $10 each, it was with large trays of several Breakfast favorites laid out alongside condiments that guests arranged plates, the fact that everything arrived and remained temperature appropriate for at least an hour ideal for staggered start times.
Overall fairly standard across the offerings, Coffee and Scrambled Eggs as good as any local diner while Bacon cooked up crisp alongside tender Sausage links that were snappy with a touch of sweetness amidst Pepper, it was in an effort to recreate Munch Box’s “Everest” that many seemed to stack a plate, the slightly smaller Pancakes just as fluffy as prior while seared Potatoes were golden, nicely salted and entirely oilless.
Again not as impressed by French Toast as Pancakes, the former fine but little more than egg-washed Bread from a skillet, it was after tasting a few Bagels that Avo admits are delivered instead of homemade that attention returned to Pancakes, the house-blended Strawberry Cream Cheese and Berries from a plethoric Fruit Tray as good as the sum of its ingredients but better thanks to 100% Pure Maple Syrup included as promised on the menu.
N/A: Making it blog policy to not ‘rate’ places based on catering alone Munch Box again outperformed several highly-regarded local Restaurants in terms of timeliness and customer service while simultaneously providing good Food at a fair price – exactly what a good caterer should do and the sort of thing that had yet another Pharmaceutical Representative free to go about his business while the Staff was fed better than any chain.
RECOMMENDED: Pancakes, Cheddar Bagel, Sausage, Home Fries.
TIP: Delivery available via EZ Cater, Grubhub or Yelp! with most items priced below $10 and cheap delivery costs.
