Melba’s Deli is truly not to be missed. We offer a fantastic selection of freshly cut deli meats from some of Melbourne’s best suppliers. We have Free Range ham and bacon from Otway Pork, smoked meats from Barkly Smokehouse, handmade salumi and chorizo from Salumi Australia and some amazing mortadella, salamis, turkey, coppa and San Danielle prosciutto. Oh…and how can you go past the imported Spanish Jamon.
But wait, there is more…our cheese selection is as divine as the cheese itself. We stock a huge selection of local and imported cheese, from the crowd pleasing Fromager D’Affinois at a yearly low price of only $55 per kilo, to some delectable Australian bries, cheddars and blue cheeses. We also have a royal selection of French cheeses such as the King of Blue, Le Roi Roquefort and his smoother and more subtle brother Saint Agur Bleu, the Queen of hard cheeses in Petit Marcel Comte and her jealous Swiss neighbour Gruyere and the rest of the French family in Camembert, Reblochon and soft and hard Chevre. We also offer amazing Dutch 12 month aged Gouda and goats Wyngaard as well as the heavyweights in Spanish Manchego, Greek Fetta and Italian Parmesan, Pecorino and Buffala Mozzarella. Vegan you say? Never fear WE STOCK A HUGE SELECTION OF VEGAN CHEESE, ALMOND FETTA AND ALMOND MOZZA!!
Jordan is our passionate cheese eater, purveyor and guide and loves talking about cheese with everyone, even at 7am whilst you order your morning coffee. Not surprising as he is married into a French family where cheese is as ritualistic and obsessional as their search for the perfect baguette. Come in any time and speak to Jordan about the perfect selection of cheeses and meats to make the perfect cheese and charcuterie board.
