All in the Family

by Liz Rogers When this circa 1886 building came up for sale around twenty years ago, the Fairlie family couldn’t resist. ‘We had another business in town already’, says Helen, ‘but we fell for this one straight away’. It’s easy to see why. They say good things come in threes and Stringers Stores is proof in the pudding. On the top floor is the kitchen where all your in-house food plus take home options are created. Take the night off this winter with a delicious casserole, curry, lasagne or soup made from only the highest quality ingredients sourced locally. A dreamy dessert will complete the deal. The main floor houses a café, liquor store and IGA. Think coffee and cake and wines from throughout the region. There is also a deli crammed full of delightful dips, crusty baguettes and mouth-watering cheeses all ready to jump into a picnic basket for those on the go, or stay put in the cosy courtyard or be street seen out front. A downstairs cellar houses a select range of vintage wines. ‘We only stock produce we love’, says Helen, and it’s a family affair - her husband Warwick and their daughters Nina and Lucy are on board. ‘We love to cook, and we love to eat!’ Whether it’s your weekly shop or a gourmet treat you’re after, what the unique Stringers Stores hasn’t got, you don’t need. Everything they do have will leave you wanting for more. Stringers Stores, 2 – 8 Ocean Beach Road, Sorrento Open from 8am every day Ph: 5984 2010
