7 Great Excuses for Food Delivery on Catalina Island
There is so much to do on Catalina Island. You could spend a day on the island hiking, biking, swimming, sunning, boating, fishing, shopping, and touring. All that activity can really work up your appetite. Luckily, there are plenty of great places to eat around Catalina. From fish tacos to French fries, pizza to pasta, pancakes to donuts, lobster to steak, fresh catches to deli sandwiches—in the 2 square miles of the city of Avalon, there are lots of different eateries to choose from for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There are also a few businesses dedicated solely to sweets, treats, and ice cream. Catalina has so much to offer and so much charm. One of the most charming things is the island pace of life; sometimes that means modern conveniences like Instacart, DoorDash, and UberEats are not available on the island. However, Catalina Taxi and Tours comes to the rescue for hungry islanders and visitors in the form of food delivery service for all Avalon restaurants. Read on to learn 7 great excuses for food delivery on Catalina Island.
1.) Breakfast in bed. Nothing says vacation like a slow morning. When you’re staying in a hotel, house, or condo on Catalina, you just might want to maximize your morning and have breakfast in bed. How does hot Kona coffee, fresh croissants, or a breakfast burrito in bed sound? Delivery from Catalina Taxi and Tours can help to make that happen. Food delivery is available from all Avalon eateries (if they’re open) beginning at 7am. It’s a good idea to scope out some of your favorite breakfast places in town and know what to order for your morning delivery.
2.) Date night. Catalina’s nickname happens to be the Island of Romance. And for many good reasons. There are such beautiful spots on the island to catch gorgeous views, stroll along the water, and just enjoy some sweet time with the one you love. During busy weekends and summertime, Avalon’s restaurants can get busy and crowded. Why not order a romantic dinner for a private picnic or a beachside dining experience? You can order any kind of dinner in Avalon—from surf and turf to Italian to Mexican food—to be delivered to the romantic location of your choosing.
3.) Dinner with a view. Perhaps you have decided to take one of the custom tours offered by Catalina Taxi and Tours, and you’ve ended up at one of the spots with the most beautiful views of the island and ocean. Why not add a meal delivery to your destination too? The knowledgeable staff of Catalina Taxi and Tours can help to select a great viewpoint and meal delivery spot for your dinner (or lunch).
4.) Too much sun. Have you spent all day out on the Pacific or sitting beach side in Avalon? Perhaps you’ve gotten just a bit too much sun, and you need to order in for the evening. Relax and recuperate in the comfort of your accommodations. The convenience of Catalina Taxi and Tour’s meal delivery service can save you a trip to one of Avalon’s restaurants.
5.) Too much fun. Families and friends come together to enjoy all the fun things on Catalina Island year after year. Sometimes, this makes for large parties that can find it hard to find dine-in tables to fit everyone. While restaurants can make accommodations for dining, sometimes it’s fun to bring the party home. Order a bunch of pizzas, platters of pasta, or plenty of other food options to feed a crowd at home in Catalina.
6.) Sweet tooth strikes. Espresso, blueberry cheesecake, decadent chocolate, lemon meringue, peanut butter cup, peppermint stick, praline pecan, caramel crunch, banana pudding, peach mango, pistachio. These are just a few of the flavors of frozen delights available for you to indulge in on the island. There are all different kinds of taffy, caramel apples, fudge, and candy confections to choose from too. After a long day of island activity, treat yourself to something sweet from one of Catalina’s sweet shops, and have it delivered right to your door.
7.) Fuel for adventure. There are some great options for healthy fare on Catalina. Fresh sandwiches and salads make for great hiking foods. Avocado toast, hummus and naan, freshly caught seafood, or smoothies are all available for delivery on the days you need some good eats to power your hike, dive, bike, swim, or island tour.
