Spring racing season is almost here and now is the time to lock in your in-house or out of office Melbourne Cup function. It would not be a winning Melbourne Cup office celebration without a winning menu. Which is why we have created a menu range specifically for Melbourne Cup functions so you can spend more time enjoying yourself (and the champagne!), and less time worrying about the catering.


Our food stations menus are designed to bring a little theatre to your event with prices starting from $35.00pp. Give your guests something to taco’bout with the Taco Libre station including a range of hard and soft tacos, guacamole, sour cream, crisp lettuce, chipotle tomato salsa and proteins including:

Spicy beef chilli con carne

Pulled chicken, jalapeno, lemon

Refried pinto beans

Or if burgers are more your style, our Slider Bar has you covered. Served with assorted buns, mustards, tomato relish, herb aioli and garden leaves and proteins including:

Cheese burger, streaky bacon, cheddar, relish

Coconut chicken, chilli jam, rocket

Chickpea, tabbouli, honeyed hummus burger


Hosting a cocktail celebration? Our canape packages feature some of the most popular items from our standard canape menu including the smooth goat’s cheese cake with shiraz onion reduction and ginger bread and the pinto bean burrito with brown rice, Mexican cheese melt and red pepper jam. Starting from just $28.00pp our Melbourne Cup Exclusive canape package includes 3 standard canapes and two substantials and cover a range of dietary requirements including vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free.

Take your cocktail party to the next level by enjoying a complimentary wine tasting with Baedeker’s in-house Semillon. Contact the team for more information on booking your complimentary wine tasting.
