67 Union Street Deli in McMahon’s Point is full of fresh produce, take-away sandwiches and Single Origin Roasters coffee. There are also plenty of options on the menu for breakfast and lunch.
Gareth Elliot and his partner Emily Witte, who both have spent time at The Boathouse Palm Beach, describe 67 Union Street Deli as a modern take on a delicatessen.
The old deli space in McMahon’s Point is perfect; with elegant surroundings, a two-level structure and an established following. For Elliot, it also provides an exciting opportunity to, “Cater for the local need,” on the lower north shore, “and then, to offer more,” he says.
Here, “Pretty much everything you can see, you can buy,” says Elliot. That includes the heirloom tomatoes and exotic fruits in the deli fridge, the succulents and flowers on the bench and the hanging teapots, bunting, napkins and tea towels by Pony Rider on display.
The menu is affordable and interesting, put together by Spanish chef Brenton Gomez, also from The Boathouse, and will adapt to the seasons. Brioche bacon-and-egg rolls are served with a flavoursome aioli and the granola comes in a jar with fresh berries.
The menu varies on weekdays to weekends. Monday to Friday, pick up your takeaway coffee from the front window and swing past for a deli sandwich to eat in Blues Point or Waverton Park. Weekends are made for lingering, and families fill the downstairs tables as toddlers play in the kids’ room and other customers loiter on the front stools or outside veranda.
