Cafes & Restaurants

General Food Store

At The General Food Store we are committed to creating an ever evolving menu using seasonal ingredients mainly sourced from the local and greater Victorian food regions. Our direct trade coffee is roasted in Melbourne by the talented team at Coffee Supreme and our providore is stocked with Victorian produce and house-made goodies.

We endeavour to operate as ethically and sustainably as possible and will continue to implement ways to reduce our impact on the environment. Some initiatives include using biodegradable takeaway coffee cups and lids, sustainable light globes and a Grease Guardian grease trap. In our rear courtyard we also collect organic waste which customers collect to feed their chooks or turn into compost. Open 7 days for breakfast, lunch and snacks. 377 Belgrave-Gembrook Rd Emerald 5968 3580 facebook website
