Scheckter's Deli dedicated food emporium imports the best the world has to offer. You’ll find fresh and dry products like Pashmak (fairy floss) and Rahat from Iran, and the finest Iranian Saffron. There’s pomegranate molasses, rose and orange water from Lebanon and Dulce de Lece from Argentina. We guarantee curious ingredients for any meal.

Across the road, cardamom wafts out to greet you at The Spice Rack, the perfect stop for curry supplies and flavours for soups and stews.

The Dutch Shop at 89 Jackson Street opened 20+ years ago because the owners missed great biscotti. Biscotti is now sold alongside salty liquorice, crunchy speculaas and Gouda with nettle, cumin and pepper.

Hungry yet? Jackson Street is spoilt for choice with 60+ great cafes in 800m, which means eating and shopping is the order of the day.

The House of Knives is famous for letting customers try before they buy. With over 6500 items in stock that’s a lot of kitchen loot for any keen cook or hard-to-buy for foodie. Find knives, cleavers, cake decorations, clogs, saw bones, thermometers and more.

Now’s the time to think of dressing your meal at The Table. Shop here for quality cutlery, dinnerware, glassware and damask linen at affordable prices. Their 1300 stock pieces of dinnerware make this a great chance to replace that lost or broken piece too.
