With an upmarket deli, fresh produce, fruits and vegetables, fine food, international groceries and a café kiosk, this gem is a one-stop-shop for everything you might need to create even the most complex and flavoursome dishes.
Browse the rainbow selection of market-fresh fruit and veg, indulge in the dairy section, snag some Colavita tapenade, stock up on Sirena Tuna or prepare to carb-load with the authentic and delicious Nonna-worthy penne from Pasta La Molisana. They’ve even got beef rib eye from local favourite Enzo’s at Penny, some hard-to-find Asian ingredients, fresh seafood, spice-packed marinades, and a whole wall dedicated to teas from Australia Tea Masters.
Answering all our grazing platter prayers, there’s also a glorious charcuterie, cracker and cheese selection with salami, prosciutto, traditional grissini and all those fancy cheese’s that would please even the cheesemongers amongst us.
As if all this weren’t enough, they’ve even gone and added in a kiosk for those that require caffeine hit to do the weekly shop.
Here, you’ll find the team from Breakwater’s Wild Goat Specialty Coffee, who has partnered with Daily Fresh Pako to open a second venue.
Whether it’s a flat white, cappuccino, long black, a latte on ice or even a mocha choc you’re after, Wild Goat’s friendly but speedy baristas have you sorted, churning out high-quality coffees at an impressive rate.
If you’re not a fan of coffee but you’re craving a hot, tea-based drink with milk to keep you warm on a cold winter day, try their chai latte, hot chocolates, or ditch the milk altogether and go for one of their brewed tea flavours. They even offer Salted Caramel and white choc hot chocolates and flavoursome milkshakes if you’re feeling extra indulgent, and for those on a health kick there’s also a selection of smoothies to choose from.
If you’re looking for a quick snack, there’s also chocolate truffle balls, custard donuts, banana bread, sweet muffins and yoyos to fuel you for the grocery haul ahead.
Keeping with Wild Goat’s sleek with a monochromic colour scheme, Daily Fresh Pako’s entire venue oozes a cool and contemporary vibe, tying the two businesses together seamlessly; from the matte black brick, to the simple yet eye-catching signage and clean and beautifully arranged shelves for easy access and perusal.
Coffee, rows full of heirloom fruit and veg, as well as super friendly staff and international goodies – it’s cuteness personified.
You can find Daily Fresh Pako at 5-7 Pakington Street, Geelong. They are open daily from 9am to 7pm.
