Buffet Menu

Build your own buffet, Vancouver style. Ocean West Catering provides affordable catering buffets that are ideal for both large and small weddings & events and are an excellent way to accommodate your guests. Buffet catering involves placing many trays of different kinds of food on a table and allowing your guests to go from tray to tray and take whichever foods they prefer.


Depending on the buffet, guests may need to serve themselves or there may be staff on hand to serve food to your guests.
