The food superstore is part of David Jones and is located in the food court of the city store. It stocks just about everything, except fresh vegetables, and a stroll past its counters is enough to make your mouth start watering.

There is a huge amount of fresh food on offer at Food Glorious Food. Stock up on breads of all kinds, from loaves to bagels, and then pick up some exotic cheeses and pretend you're on a holiday in France. Or head to the fresh seafood section to grab a fillet for dinner or some smoked salmon to have on your lunch. You can buy meat, pies, salads, pizzas and a whole manner of food that can be cooked for you on the spot, or taken home for later.
Loaves of Bread
The shelves of Food Glorious Food stock everything from pasta sauce, to tea, to bottles of water that cost $10 a litre. The flavours are new and interesting and the quality is high. If you're baking with an American recipe, you can find the corn syrup or canned pumpkin that would be hard to find in the regular supermarkets. There are other overseas specialities available such as obscure relishes and peanut butter and 'jelly' spread. You can buy pop tarts and other American foods that have long gone out of stock in Australian stores.
