Sydney's Inner West
Food, wine, groceries and a beautiful addition to the Petersham shopping strip.
A new shopping mecca in downtown Petersham, the Majestic Gourmet Grocers are a French Style market and restaurant right on our back door!
With a grocer, baker, fishmonger (serving fresh fish and chips), delicatessen, florist and restaurant, there's a lot to see here. There is also a wine bar and casual dining area opening upstairs soon.
A far cry form the days of old when the Old Majestic was the local picture theatre, and then a roller skating rink - the building has been closed since 1992, it has now been refurbished into a chic restaurant and food market.
It's so lovely to see the work that has gone into restoring this gorgeous building. Many of the old features and fixtures have been kept and combined with a somewhat modern renovation, to create a warm welcoming and beautiful space.
You can't help but smile as you walk through the front door, you are surrounded by the beautiful flowers that are for sale and you can see the food market in front of you.
We popped in for lunch, and there was plenty of room so we were able to grab a table without booking. The menu is fresh with lots of delicious options, and there is a kids menu upon request, which includes spaghetti, chicken and chips and a ham and cheese toastie from $6.00
We ordered the Prawn Spaghetti, Mushroom tart with tomato salad, and the Warm Chicken and Fennel Salad. The meals were the perfect size for lunch and really delicious!
Also great to keep in mind, they make fresh fish and chips in store to take away. They have a kids portion for $6.50, and regular size from $11.00, and plenty of other delicious options on the menu.
While not your typical set up for kids, there are high chairs available and really friendly staff, so keep this on your list if you are after a nice spot for coffee and cake, or lunch with a glass of wine. It's so handy that you can pick up your groceries at the same time!
