When there are birthdays, work anniversaries, and team wins to celebrate, why not offer them something rich and delicious they can enjoy after lunch? Which Wich is famous for their classic sandwiches (we’re obsessed with the rich, salty cold cuts on their Italian grinders), but they also offer tender, fragrant cakes, too. Their cake tray includes an assortment of rich chocolate cake, birthday cake, and spiced carrot cake with tangy frosting. By the time you unveil the surprise dessert, they’ll be blown away and ready to dig in.
Agra Culture makes eating healthy easy with their flavorful salads and sandwiches. The arugula “detox” salad is garnished with plenty of crunchy, sweet, and creamy toppings to win you over. There’s a lot going on in the “Agra Harvest” salad, too, like fall veggies, smoked Gouda cheese, and candied walnuts. Also try their seriously flavorful spicy salmon sandwich dressed with harissa chili paste and garlic aioli sauce.
We get it: the office loves Asian food. SotaRol does an East-meets-West mashup that cleverly modernizes traditional Chinese, Korean, and Japanese flavors. Their burritos have a surprising depth of flavor from proteins like Korean-style beef simmered in soy sauce and crispy, five-spice pork. Make sure to order up sides of their golden tater tots topped with a marvelous mess of pork, fermented kimchi cabbage, and spicy condiments.
For those who want to eat a little healthier, try D. Brian’s Deli & Catering.

The food tastes great and is made with nutrient-dense, minimally processed ingredients so you can put the menu on repeat every week and feel good about it.
If your Minneapolis office needs catering for a low-key event, your best bet is the “Broasted Chicken Gold” from Boss’ Pizza and Chicken. It’s two pieces of golden, craggy, pressure-fried chicken with crisp potato wedges, a side, and a soft roll—the meal brings waves of good feeling to any event.
Burrigato’s pan-Asian menu is so versatile and comforting that it might just become part of your office’s weekly lunch routine. Their most popular burrito is stuffed with chicken and rice, which sops up the rich, spicy Thai panang curry—a red coconut curry with citrusy, floral notes. Their Okinawan taco rice bowl, popular in Japan, combines chewy rice and seasoned Tex-Mex ground beef, cheese, and creamy Japanese mayonnaise.
Galactic Pizza might just expose you to fresh and healthy flavors you didn’t realize you loved. The nutty, aromatic Thai linguine is a lighter, brighter pasta dish with plenty of veggies. The “Rasta” pasta is coated with a flavorful pesto sauce made of nutrient-packed hemp seeds and parmesan.
If you’re feeling a little self-conscious about how much you’re spending, Eddington’s Catering has choices for you.

If an event is scheduled at the eleventh hour and you’re scrambling for a no-fuss option, try Firehouse Subs. Their “Lieutenant Standard” box lunch is tailored to feed crowds.

The Cove serves up gorgeous sushi burritos for those who are suckers for fresh fish, aromatic rice, and fancy, flavorful sauces. Their boxed sushi burrito lunches look like sleek, edible gifts that’ll surely impress clients. For those who prefer eating by land, a simple trick is to order a few banh mi sandwiches to accompany the sushi burritos. They’re just as pretty—porky, pickled, fiery morsels built on a crisp baguette.
