In an era where speed is everything, food is one of those things that needs to be taken slowly and handled with care. We strive to source locally and provide food that is from the heart. Seasonal, carefully handled and prepared with a caring attention to detail. Great food should nourish more than just the body,
This is our version of soul food.
Rowena Corner Store is a place to congregate, connect and share yummy food experiences. This has been our community building process for many years.
THE PERFECT BLT
A decade ago we asked a simple question: how do we create the perfect BLT?
Getting the basics right is key. Artisan focaccia bread, prime cut eye bacon, crisp iceberg lettuce and fresh juicy tomatoes, and you’re well on your way. But the true BLT secret? The aioli – creamy, zingy and oh so addictive. Come in and try for yourself.
For those moments when you need more, add our 75g free-range, grain fed, farm-sourced eggs from Hastings. Avocado and cheese are other great additions.
For those not inclined to swine, get a tasty BLT experience vege-style with grilled haloumi instead of bacon.
We bring our heritage to the hotplate with specialty dishes of comfort food you may have never tried before.
Kaski, from Neveska in Northern Greece, consists of a hefty amount of roasted red peppers cooked in a tomato reduction with fresh ricotta, feta cheese, and a hint of chilli. Served with Artisan focaccia dipping toast, this traditional Northern Greek specialty warms you from the inside out. Available daily and for you to take home and pretend you spent all day cooking it yourself.
σπανακόπιτα – Spanakopita
The finest comfort food we’ve come across, you’d be crazy to resist the flaky golden pastry of this traditional Greek spinach pita. Enjoy with or without a Cypriot grain side salad. We also make a leek and fetta pita in the same tradition served with real Greek yoghurt.
