Spring Street Grocery

Con Christopoulos and Joshua Brisbane are adding to their stretch of Spring St establishments of The City Wine shop, The European and Siglo comes Spring Street Grocery. This is exactly what the top end of the city needs; an artisan delicatessen and gelataria to pick up your goods on the way home via Parliament Station. At least will be when it is up and running at full capacity.

Testing the waters at the moment, Spring Street Grocery are serving Romcaffe coffee, cold pressed juices and they have a small selection of cakes and pastries on the counter. But the draw card for these coming summer days is the gelato bar (medium $6.50).

Unlike the mammoth mountains of cream you will see on Lygon Street, these beauties are stored in traditional gelato canisters on the counter and are made on site by Massimo. This gelato maestro has been mastering the art of gelato for the last 11 years and they are spectacular.

There’s the unusual cardamom, turmeric and saffron to the more traditional hazelnut praline; if you are like me and not a big sugar tooth, these are going to knock your sweet socks off and change your mind for good.

Come mid to late January, the bigger picture will open up to reveal a charcuterie, freshly made baguettes and in the basement will be Australia’s first ‘cheese cave’ where cheeses will be brought in young and matured on site.
