More than a supermarket
Café at Woolies.

Our location

It first came as a surprise to me. A café in Woolworths supermarket in the Chirnside Park Shopping Centre.

Apart from barista made coffee, they offer cakes, slices, tarts, toasties, pies, pasties, rolls, wraps and scones with jam and cream.

It's a take-away or sit down service, with their seating area catering for 24 people.

Cafe interior
Small but cosy.

Another surprise was a sushi section, offering a large range with freshly made items as you can see them being prepared.

The prices are very reasonable. My medium size cappuccino and ham, cheese and tomato toasty was $7-50. A previous visit a medium coffee and a warm scone with jam and cream was only $6-00.

Coffee & toasty
My coffee and toasty.

They advise two scones with jam and cream is $4-00, but I was pleased when they let me have just one scone for $2-00.

My only slight criticism was that I prefer my coffee in a cup or mug, not the cardboard takeaway containers, although I must admit that with the lid firmly attached my coffee stays hotter longer, and that's a plus.

Tucked away in a bright corner.

My market research tells me that many Woolworth supermarkets now have small cafes. Judging by the popularity of the Chirnside Park café, there could soon be more.

Oh Woolworths on the corner of Warrigal Rd and High Street, Ashwood has a great little Cafe just like the one discussed and with quite a few tables and chairs. The coffee is great as well as what's offered- food wise. Plus there, you can get a loyalty card and get it stamped. There is always a newspaper to read too if you're sipping alone. Oh and they're great in as much as if you return and after a few visits will remember what kind of coffee you drink!

I carry my ceramic 'fill & go' cup wherever I go for my Coffee fix as I prefer a proper cup. I love my cakes & the selection looks really good which you can't buy in-store, I would be 'promoting' store 'availability'' items from bakery to really get the 'try b4 U buy' experience, this would encourage me to purchase bakery items I haven't tried.

As a lot of Woolworths own brand products contain Palm Oil, it would be interesting to know if the offerings in the cafe are palm oil free? With the probable extinction of orangutans in the next ten years, hopefully they offer alternatives so their customers can make informed purchasing decisions.
