Maloney’s changed the Eastern Suburbs for the better when it opened 11 years ago – no longer did Coogee locals have to slog to Bondi Junction to do their shopping. This is a fully stocked, compact shop, with a quality selection of fruit and veg – everything from swiss brown mushrooms to papaya, organic meats and fish, dairy, prepared foods and high-end, hard-to-find pantry and housewares (from preserved lemons to baking parchment). Locals swarm in after work to pick up bits for dinner prep, and beachgoers load up on picnic supplies at the weekend. Lunch lines at the deli counter are long, as people queue for picture-perfect sambos, quiche and lasagna, or in the morning for coffee made by a friendly face. Plus the snack game is strong with this one. Buckets of crisps and rows of chocolate sit alongside paleo bars and tubs of pre-packaged nuts and dried fruit.
