Open to the public 5 1/2 days a week, this is Gourmet Central—the mother ship—where we share the secrets of our journeys and the joy of our discoveries. Open the door and take a deep breath. Exotic aromas welcome you to a treasure trove of grand desires for everyday indulgence.
Of course, this is where you’ll find the many varieties of Rio Coffee, as well as tea, chai and chocolate. Talk to a fellow addict and try something new. Time to meet your maker? Our extensive range of espresso machines, grinders and accessories for the home or office is all switched on and ready to serve. And every weekend, our baristas demonstrate their magic.
But we’ve just scratched the surface. Our European grocer shop stocks 800 items produced by specialist and artisan suppliers, which we’ve hunted down and gathered from the far-flung corners of Italy and across Australia. We’ve got handmade pastas and sauces, oils, biscuits, pastry shells, confectionary, luxury chocolates, homewares, giftware, cookbooks and kitchen products. We’ve even got hard-to-find stuff like rose water and gluten-free items.
Just as well our friendly and knowledgeable staff is on hand to help you choose.
And for those in hospitality, this is also where we’ll show you our hospitality, along with the imported sparkling waters, juices, wines and beers we distribute.
