Grange is a lovely suburb with breathtaking views, beautiful homes and now, a deli.
Coastal Delicatessen, which is a bit European deli and a bit Australian Corner store, is set to open in April.
Sean Pattinson and wife Sheena are set to open the venture in what used to be a local mini mart, and they want to keep some of that feel.
“For many years the place has been a little supermarket, and we are planning on turning it into a continental deli but also an Australian deli as well,” Pattinson says. “I suppose we want to bring it into the 21st Century because it was a very outdated store.”
“We also wanted to provide something for people in this area that they haven’t had before like different meats and cheeses and small goods as well as pantry staples,” he says.
From 9am-3pm, the store will only operate as a takeaway store, so think of things like panini’s and bagels to-go. After 3pm until early evening, you will be able to dine in.
“We want to cater to the after-work crowd,” Pattinson says.
“We’re doing this because a lot of coffee shops close in the afternoon, and other than going to a pub. there’s not a lot of options for people in the suburbs who want to catch up a bit later in the day.”
The couple have been Grange locals for some time and know the area’s community focus and history, so they hope what they have created taps into and honours that.
Coastal Delicatessen will also be available for catering needs with grazing boxes designed for 2 up to 200 people.

You’ll be able to find Coastal Delicatessen at 14 Jetty St, Grange.
