We are soooo lucky! Our Potts Point neighbourhood offers the best choice of Delicatessen, speciality stores and other local corner shops in Sydney! Did you know that our Sydney Lodges hotels are a family-owned business and that the family's 80-year-old patriarch opened one of the first European speciality Delis in the 60s with the largest selection of continental goods in the country? So we do pride ourselves for knowing quite a bit about tasty cheeses, hams and olives. Don't miss our list of curated local shops (not so secret anymore!):
BOTTEGA DEL VINO
For the past 5 years, Bottega del Vino has had great success in making great wines available to the residents of Potts Point and surrounds. This small retail shop offers many artisanal brands of wines, cheeses, chocolates and other goodies that are not available in the large supermarkets and liquor store chains and carefully selected by these experts. Small, intimate and inclusive this local deli is not to be missed!
Open 7 days a week, 10 am to 8 pm, 77 Macleay Street, Potts Point. 02 9331 8333
PENNY'S CHEESE SHOP
Don't miss the small and cute cheese shop run by Penny Lawson who opened in 2018. It is THE place to go for all sorts of cheese discoveries. As well as being a passionate 'fromage' expert, she also makes the most awesome toasties with a selection of 7 or 8 different cheeses that vary every week and beautiful locally sourced sourdough bread.
Open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, 4 Roslyn Street, Potts Point.
WHOLE BEAST BUTCHERY
We love the authenticity of Marcus Papadopoulo's old school butchery. Everything is stored and dry-aged whole, a process that enhances the flavour and tenderness of his carefully selected and grass-fed meats. Marcus is an absolute expert in his field and carves on-site to the weight and specifications his clients want. There are also rillettes, pâtés, jars of pickles and chilli jam, all of which are made on the premises.
Open Tuesday to Friday (10 am-6.30 pm) & Saturday/Sunday (10 am-3 pm), 5-15 Orwell Street, Potts Point.
