I recently moved to Coburg and I am constantly amazed and delighted by the delicious, fresh and inexpensive food gems which are everywhere in this part of town.
In particular I have fallen in love with Mediterranean Wholesalers, just up Sydney Rd in Brunswick. It has become my new favourite place to spend a Saturday morning enjoying the atmosphere, perusing the shelves and enjoying a coffee!
I feel like the name Mediterranean Wholesalers is a bit misleading. They sell so much more than bulk pasta and tins of tomatoes (although you can definitely get those things here too!). They stock everything from pasta (both fresh and dried), to freshly baked bread, tinned food and imported alcohol. They also have a massive deli full of cured meats and every kind of cheese you could ever imagine (including goat's milk brie!).
Mediterranean Wholesalers also has a small cafe inside. The coffee is strong, fresh and delicious and the Italian cakes and biscuits are to die for! I have it on good authority that the cannoli alone is well worth a trip to the north west!
