You and your guests have spent an entire evening storming the dance floor and throwing back a few soda pops. With all those spent calories, there’s no doubt that everyone’s worked up quite the appetite! Enter the late night food station – one of the most fun (and memorable!) ways for you to inject some serious personality into your wedding menu and help keep the party moving!
If you’re working with a professional wedding caterer, the options are truly endless. Nothing’s off limits so why not unleash your inner foodaholic and incorporate a glorious, comfort-food-laden late night station that is guaranteed to keep guests happy!
Here’s a little inspiration from a handful of the city’s top caterers keen to share some of their most popular late night food stations with you.
Fried Chicken Waffle Cones
We pair two of our most heavenly comfort foods to create the ultimate late-night crowd-pleaser. We draw inspiration from the various cultures from within our kitchen by putting together waffle cones, fried chicken, ethnic gourmet flavours + garnishes. It’s the perfect sweet + savoury comfort food that sparks excitement and indulgences!
Our Chicken-n-Grits is the perfect late night station to keep the celebration going. This southern comfort food with loads of flavour can be made vegetarian using fried cauliflower and either version can be made gluten free so that everyone at your reception has something to enjoy as they dance the night away.

Gourmet Pop Tart Station
On our late night menu, we've serve up strawberry, nutella and blueberry pop tarts dipped in icing, colourfully decorated and served in pastel wraps! This has proven time and time again to be a fun, late night treat!

We’ve found that enchiladas have been a popular late night food station to offer to our guests. The softness of the tortilla paired with the creamy filling and a spicy touch from the sauce creates a fun flavour and texture combination that guests love and just can’t resist!

Late Night Dessert Table
The classic 'late night dessert table' is always a winner for satisfying your guests’ sweet tooth and adding a personal element based on your late night cravings. Recently, we designed a dessert table including childhood favourites such as Jelly Doughnuts, Rice Krispy Treats and Chocolate Cupcakes.

Nacho Cheese Fountain
This 'cheesy' station was a huge hit at a summer pool party! Some of the delicious items that the guests could cover in this cheesy goodness were jalapeno poppers, pogos, breaded pretzels, fresh tortilla chips and much more! Guaranteed to be a hit late night option at your wedding/event!

Loaded Mashed Potato Martini Station
Our Loaded Mashed Potato Martini is a late-night nosh that never fails to please - it's one of our best sellers! We combine our famous recipe for creamy mashed Yukon Gold potatoes with an abundance of toppings and all of the conventional garnishes that you’d expect to see adorning a baked potato. No one leaves hungry and no one can forget this new-fashioned late-night temptation.
Kiss the Cook Catering
Our S'mores bar consists of house made vanilla marshmallows which guests dip in milk and dark chocolate, then top with graham crackers and smashed Oreo cookies! There's something nostalgic about s'mores, and we find anything that reminds people of their childhood (grilled cheese, candy, etc) make great late night stations since guests can forget about being as prim + proper as they had to be for the sit-down courses! Just getting messy is always a fun time!
