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.

Cliffy's X SPQR Pizzeria

Saturday, FEBRUARY 16, 2019 at 5 PM – 9 PM

When the world seems to shine like you’ve had too much wine - that’s amore. Also when the crew from SPQR Pizzeria setup their roamin’ wood-fired pizza at Cliffy’s in Daylesford - that’s amore.

With Valentine’s Day just a few days prior, love is bound to be in the air - love for good pizza, great local wine and summery cocktails that is.

Cliffy’s is bringing SPQR Pizzeria back to Daylesford and transforming again into ‘Little Italy’. Think super authentic Neapolitan wood fired pizza back with SPQR’s signature sourdough base, San Marzano tomatoes, plus the finest local and imported ingredients. The Cliffy’s cocktail slinging crew will be serving up cheeky little negronis, bubbly aperol spritz local wine and refreshing beers. The strong deep vocals of Elvira Andreoli will transport everyone to Italy with her Italian jazz, folk and classic sing-a-longs.

Indulge on the delicacies of the gourmet local lovings under the grapevine-laden verandah or pull up a stool at the original Cliffy’s timber counters.

Gluten free and vegan pizza catered for. Bookings are not required.
