Gorgeous and Delicious: Two of the owner’s favourite words. As the closest, latte-stroll-able cafe to anderida accommodation (www.anderida.com.au) we were always cheering for Ria.
The Gorgelicious Store, https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Gorgelicious-Store/269215226585229, has just celebrated it’s one year anniversary and what a great year.
Located in Red Hill, the Hinterland of the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, Ria set out to pursue her dream of a combined cafe and store that would be a ‘happy and welcoming’ place where you could have a home-cooked meal.
The Gorgelicious Store food philosophy is to source locally and organically where possible. Ria goes to great lengths to source top quality products in her recipes. For example: Ria uses Jersey milk specially ordered from a small dairy that barista-tests EVERY batch of milk produced. The Gorgelicious Store has the least expensive latte we know of but her wholesale milk cost is $3.50/L instead of the cheap $1/L from the supermarket. Her high standards don’t cost you much more.
Accommodation guests can enjoy a lovely 2.2 km walk past vineyards on a walking trail and reward yourself with a fabulous coffee, lovely lunch, and all-day cooked breakfast (on weekends).
The Gorgelicious Store started “Fish & Chip Friday” a few months back. The flathead tails are fresh caught locally, pick up and hand delivered the same day direct by the fisherman. Currently using 6-10 kgs of flathead tails per week, depending on daily catch, Ria sells out every week so either get there early or pre-order for pick-up (5989 2680)
Ria has recently installed a take-away meal freezer that works fabulously for anderida guests who need a good meal that you can enjoy in your room. Ria keeps an ever-changing range of fresh, home-made soup, curry and stew in takeaway packs and caters to vegetarian, Gluten-free,vegan and paleo needs.
