Graeme and Jacqueline opened The Storehouse in Mt Evelyn only a few weeks ago with the purpose of giving the ‘little guy a leg up’. By ensuring that all produce is sourced locally and stocking artisan wears of local makers, this husband and wife team seems to have created a little hub of wholesomeness.

The storehouse produce

The Storehouse sells a wide range of self serve bulk wholefoods, including flours, seeds, nuts and dried fruits. They also have a good collection of sustainable living personal and household products. Locally roasted coffee from Capulus Roastery makes the perfect companion for the cakes and muffins baked down the road by Mel McGregor from Sweet Feast. All the fresh produce used by the cafe is supplied by Organic Empire a few kilometers away. You will find original artworks hung on the walls and the curious terrariums from Little Lands in Monbulk delight the solid timber tables crafted by Jayden Lucas, who also happens to be member of the family. Needless to say ‘local is the new black’ and this pair have style!

The Storehouse has a really relaxed atmosphere and as I stood back to watch Graeme and his Dad have an arm wrestle over the counter, it gave me that ‘feel good feeling’ to see a group of people having fun, whilst looking after the little guys.

Oh, and if selling organic and locally sourced goods wasn’t doing enough to encourage a healthy lifestyle, they also have some exercise equipment out the back. If you can do 30 pull-ups without stopping… you’ll win yourself a free coffee!

For more info head to their Facebook page, or pop in for a cuppa.

    Just purchased some cold pressed organic olive oil it’s lovely and at a really reasonable price! Then had a cheeky coffee and was extremely impressed that an outter city Cafe had not only great coffee but it wasn’t burnt and was a beautiful smooth blend.. Will be re visiting soon!
