A buffet is a festive system of serving meals to the public. A line of metal containers filled with food is placed on a long table, and people help themselves depending on their appetites. This practice began around the 19th century where food was served at parties; since not everyone plans to eat during the party, the food is there for the hungry guests.

Types of Buffets

  • Breakfast Buffets

Almost every high-end hotel offers breakfast buffets. It’s an excellent way to feed all the guests without putting too much burden on your staff. It provides various breakfast combinations where customers get to pick for themselves, and it can be prepared the night before.

  • Salad Buffets

This is also offered in many establishments, but it’s not as popular. Preparing vegetables can be a difficult task as greens tend to wilt when exposed to hot temperatures.

To keep lettuce cool and crisp, spray a bit of water and use some ice to keep them cold. Remember to offer a variety of dressings such as vinaigrettes, yogurt, oils, and lemons. 

  • Snack Buffets

Some buffet places offer snacks or appetizers before serving the main dishes. This gives the chefs time to prepare certain meals as some of them are better served warm. Snack buffets have bread, fruits, soups, and sandwiches.

  • Dessert Buffet

These are popular among young guests. Ice cream, cakes, and other pastries are commonly served on these buffets with toppings like chocolate, nuts, and sprinkles to go along with them.

  • Brunch Buffets

This is a meal that is served around 10-11:30 pm. They’re great for the weekends and a popular hangout suggestion for couples, friends, and family. They have a mix of breakfast meals and lunch meals served at the buffet, and customers get to decide which meal they would like.
