We went to Trentham just for a day out, not knowing much about the area. As it was about lunch time we tried to find somewhere to eat, and most places were packed out. Just as we were beginning to think we would be going without, we stumbled upon "Colliban Foodstore". Going in we found this place was near on... More

I've been to the Colliban Foodstore in Trentham a few times now over the last couple of years, and one of the good things about this place is their ability to learn and adapt and respond to their clientele. The place, which was good to start with mind you, has settled and found a solid core staff who run place... More

Management is inconsistent. We are an older couple. Management seemed to relate better to his peers. Other staff very helpful. Food okay.

The coffee is awful, way to expensive for what you get. The owner has been very rude and I won't not ever going their again. There are so many great places to eat, Miss Marples Tea Rooms in Trentham, The Plough, new to Trentham otherwise The radio springs Hotel at Lyonville is excellent, and has old world accommodation.

Have enjoyed several lunches over the past year at this pleasant venue. Good variety of filling sandwiches on offer. Small but good selection of cakes/slices and muffins offered. Recommend the coffee.

The service and attitude from the owner was ......well to say the least ........pathetic! Why start a customer based business and have little if not 'zero' skills in dealing with people. I won't even start on the food , because we did'nt even stay to look at a menu!! Don't waste your time on this one.

On entering this cafe food store I felt I would be giving it a good review -at least in my head. The reviews on Trip Adviser were so positive. Having had lunch there I then felt compelled to submit my feedback. How disappointing is this place. Yet it could be so good. Ambiance was great. Nice tables surrounded by food... More

I like this place. A hidden nugget right in the middle of the Golden Triangle. Deliciously overabundant with tall shelves bulging with mouthwateringness and piles of high end deli and gourmet products. There is still an easy finesse about the atmosphere. The service is quiet, friendly, and not in your face. They know their products, make good coffee and are... More

Just the type of 'bottleshop', providore, cafe you want/need in a small country town. Have never walked away empty handed.
