We use local, WA pork ribs which we house-smoke on site using apple & hickory wood chips. We have two marinades available, Asian Honey Soy & BBQ Sweet Chilli. Both are made using fresh ingredients by our in-house chefs. This is a perfect meal option when you need to feed a crowd or are short of time! They are absolutely delicious!
New to our shelves - delicious fruit & vegetable chips from Nudus. These chips are slowly air-dried, not baked or fried. They are loaded with nutrients, just like freshly-picked fruit and veggies. Each fruit and vegetables is sliced and air-dried to a perfect crunch, keeping in the nutrients, flavour and colour. They are a healthier choice and will satisfy any craving - salty or sweet!
Without exception, Suavia is one of the leaders in quality and terroir expression of the Soave Classico region.

Terre a Terre is a French expression meaning ‘Down to Earth’. Carefully selected vineyards in cool climate regions of South Australia provide fruit for a range that reflects European styles of winemaking, focusing on texture and structure. Beautiful, thoughtful wines from a family rooted in the history of the South Australian wine industry.

Alongside their amazing hot chocolate range - Grounded Pleasures have added delicious marshmallows! The divine joy of tasting the sweet, velvety and luscious texture of a melting marshmallow immersed in hot chocolate cannot be surpassed. Hot chocolate and marshmallows are a perfect match - it is hard to have one without the other.
These marshmallows are proudly made in their home town of Ballarat, in regional Victoria, Australia. They are gluten free, preservative free and dairy free with natural colours and flavours. Good enough to devour by themselves of toast over the campfire..... but we just love melting them in our hot chocolate!

Our florists have sourced the most beautiful, soft pink Peony Roses! These have been flown direct from the grower in Holland and are the last of the season. Peonies have been used and cultivated in China since early history. Ornamental cultivars were created from plants cultivated for medicine in China as of the sixth and seventh century. Peonies became particularly popular during the Tang dynasty where they were grown in the imperial gardens. The Netherlands is the largest peony cut flower producing country with about 50 million stems each year! Pick up a bunch of these beautiful blooms from our flower department - wrapping is complimentary!

Whether you are grabbing straight from the bag to enjoy or adding into a delicious baked dessert, dark-sweet cherries taste great in salads, cooked dishes, and for juicing and freezing.
$55 per bottle - just arrived in the Wine Loft.
Marchand & Burch Morgon is produced from hand-harvested 45 year old vines using traditional techniques including gentle whole bunch fermentation and maturation in concrete. The deep purple-tinged ruby colour is a hallmark of the Cru. The nose engages with ripe raspberry,forest fruits, anise spice and sweet earth and leathery notes. The palate is full-fruited with a vibrant juicy acidity that makes the mouth water and a powdery tannin profile which lengthens the finish to reveal stony earth, leather and pepper berry notes. - a delicious wine from one of our favourite local producers.
A creamy and delicious European style drinking chocolate made from mineral-rich cocoa, lucuma, carob, cinnamon and wild crafted vanilla bean. GLUTEN FREE – DAIRY FREE – SUGAR-FREE (no added sugar) enjoy hot or cold. The healthy way to indulge + enliven the senses. This truly is the best chocolate powder on the market, it is beautifully smooth and absolutely delicious.
We now have stock of this delicious bean-to-bar, single-origin, small batch chocolate! Not only is the chocolate of an incredibly high quality, the packaging is absolutely beautiful in its quirkiness. French trained pastry chef-turned-chocolatier Charles Lemai was travelling in Vietnam last year when he met an artisan chocolate maker. He discovered the bean-to-bar chocolate process and chocolate is now his passion. Charles sources his beans from small farms in the Solomon Islands, Haiti, Brazil and Madagascar, and he will be experimenting with many textures and unique flavours. The sweet smell of chocolate being made onsite is very hard to resist.
