Every emerging suburban town needs a quality grocery store, a place to get your weekly stock and maybe something more upscale.

Gourmet European Cafe Food


Petersham is the newest popular foodies' destination because it is recently blessed to have Majestic Gourmet Grocers which has the classy European provisions of any kind imaginable and much much more...



The Majestic Gourmet Grocers is situated in the previously derelict, heritage-listed Majestic Theatre site, which was also a rollerskating rink in the seventies! The philosophy behind this place is to "bring back-to-basics" approach to food shopping, cooking and eating by having an European-style market, gourmet grocer and modern European restaurant, Majestic Harvest, all under the one roof.



Upon entering, you will be greeted with an abundant full blooming florist corner. The heavenly fresh floral scent will set everyone to ease. The market has a butcher, seafood, a bakery, fruit & veg, charcuterie e fromage and much more. If time is precious for you on the weekend, then the Majestic Gourmet Grocers is the perfect stopover to pick up quality ready-to-go food supply.

Say Ham? Majestic Gourmet Grocers is the Perfect 'Meating' Place


The latest addition to the Majestic Gourmet Grocers is the Majestic Harvest Restaurant/Cafe which offers gourmet Mediterranean-influenced meals and each dish is built from the on-site market's fresh, local, seasonal produce.

Fine cafe dining atmosphere


When we arrived, the place was already buzzing with happy weekend atmosphere with all the shoppers and diners. The Cafe is located near the entrance, so shoppers can peruse the markets at their leisure, greetings can be exchanged and village life hums along at Majestic Gourmet Grocers.

If you are a picky diner, you might be concerned with a boring limiting cafe menu selections to pique your interest. You will not have that problem at Majestic Harvest.

There were so many things I wanted on the menu I almost couldn't decide. Everything that comes out of that kitchen is just brilliant in a word. We selected a few entrees and mains to share.

Salumi board selection of meats, cheese, pickles $25


Our heart soared when we saw this large charcuterie board filled with delightful selection of dried deli cured meat, pickles and breads. We had a good feeling about this place already.

This generous platter would make the most ardent foodie weep. There was an assorted cuts of cold ham, bread and olives that would go nicely with a glass of wine.

No need to dine at a winery restaurant, one can stay here all day sampling the best providore.

Salt , rosemary & lemon squid $14


The salt and pepper squid ($14) was a great snack to munch on before the main meal. The fried squid was lightly seasoned with salt, rosemary and lemon and it tasted slightly more exotic than your normal salt-n-pepper squid. It was a moreish dish with the homemade tartar sauce.

Zucchini flower with ricotta, pine nuts, basil, burnt butter muscatel, lemon $15


I love the combination of fried zucchini flower and the creamy ricotta cheese. The crispy batter was a bit thick for my liking but the pine nuts basil garnish and the burnt butter muscatel sauce was absolutely delicious. The presentation was photo worthy and it was a shame to cut into the zucchini flower.

The Majestic - 3 eggs fried or poached, Serrano ham, black pudding, baked beans, spinach, kale, wholegrain toast $19.00


After a few delectable entrees, breakfast was a sharing affair. The Majestic Big Breakfast Pan ($19) offered a bountiful offering of flavorful Spanish Jamón Serrano cured ham and thick-cut house made black pudding sausages. It was served with lavish trimmings that included three perfectly poached eggs, baked beans, spinach, kale and a wholegrain toast.

The Vege Patch – quinoa, chickpea and sweet potato slab with asparagus, field mushrooms, poached egg, truffle salsa verde $18.5


We took one look at this delectable vegetarian dish and we were salivating at the strong aromatic truffle scent.

The Vege Patch ($18.50) was a tasty combination of quinoa, chickpea and sweet potato vegetarian patty, served with field mushrooms, asparagus and a running poached egg. The dish was generously dressed with an addictive truffle salsa verde that brought the whole dish together.

Pappardelle, polpetti, sugo, pecorino $17.5


A good homely Italian meatball pasta ($17.50) in slow-cooked tomato sauce was just the thing for a lazy weekend brunch. From our conversations with the staff, we found out that all the pasta is made fresh on site. It was solid filling dish.

Battered Fish without the chips


We also got some crispy battered fish fillets in the old fashion style. I absolutely enjoyed this light dish. The batter was light and crispy and the fish tasted juicy and succulent.

Potato gnocchi, burnt sage butter, gorgonzola $16


The gnocchi with blue cheese sauce ($16) had quite a following with people saying it is one of the best potato gnocchi they have ever had. I had one taste and I concurred wholeheartedly.

Irresistibly delicious!


The dish may looked simple but it tasted rich and creamy in burnt sage butter. The distinctive blue cheese sauce was strong and glorious. I would recommend this tasty dish to those who are keen on blue cheese.

Can you say no to a tiny Portuguese Tart?


After these generous dishes, there was absolutely no stomach room to try the desserts. However, when we saw the Majestic's homemade Portuguese tarts just came out of the oven, how could we resist? Surely, we could find room for a tiny dessert.

Smoothing Chai Tea


We paired the Portuguese tart with a special-brewed Chai tea as well as a small taster of the Belgian Chocolate Ganache Shake.

Highly Recommend this Belgian Chocolate Ganache Shake


I must admit, I was not fond of Chai tea but this specially-brew formulation was surprisingly nice. No one can fault this chocolate ganache milkshake and it ended our long lunch on a happy note.

Overall, the Majestic Harvest provides a pleasant dining experience. The high ceiling gives the café an airy feeling, encouraging diners to relax and enjoy casual weekend catch ups with friends.
