Adjacent to one of the original and most iconic brunch joints in Melbourne, The Pantry Delicatessen has undergone a revamp with a classy new fit out and a stunning range of take-home food.
Exploring new territory with a plethora of seasonal take-away deli nibbles, meals and treats, ingredients are sourced from local producers, and ready-to-go meals are prepared by restaurant-trained chefs. The options are gobsmacking; from gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free in preparation, to the myriad of cheeses, fresh salads, hearty meals, breads and of course, tantalising cakes and sweets. There is something for everyone, for every occasion, whether it be a simple take-away lunch or a take-home meal for a lazy Sunday afternoon gathering with family and friends.
Quality is king at The Pantry Deli; this is evident before you even enter the store. Setup in the window display are some delicious looking cuts of dry aged meat, including dry aged rib eye beef and a slow roasted half side of lamb – ready to be cooked by The Pantry chefs for collection the next day.
Moving on in, you feel like you’ve entered a modern restaurant complete with soft down-lighting and timber frames, until you notice the rows of display cabinets and quirky art installation behind the counter. This is fun and friendliness meets serious cooking and produce.
