Oh the stories our store could tell! Our heritage building has been around since the late-1800s, occupied by a mayor, an eccentric merchant, an artist and a succession of passionate foodies. It has been a local institution for as long as any local can remember, one where you can catch up with friends, connect with new people, cultivate new ideas, plan festivals and so much more - all while enjoying a great coffee, a delicious meal or a fabulous local vino.

Here you’ll find all the extra opportunities to visit Cliffy’s, be it a sumptuous feast prepared by a special guest chef,
a musical performance, a local’s dinner event or ‘just because’, we hope you’ll join us.
