What a gem The food was amazing the chilli chicken was on my mind for days after I ate it. Recipe anyone? Great service. It's a touch of Brunswick in the country Thanks for the hospitality. Wanted dessert sooooo bad but was too full

This place has great potential of being a real gem in trentham. The produce for sale is terrific (though pricey). I have been twice now and it falls short for me. Today I'm going to list what disappointed me. My charcuterie platter came out on a plain white plate. It would have looked so much better on a wooden board.... More

this is one of those places oozing with atmosphere- an old store, odd tables and chairs, great food and really friendly staff. It is hidden away off the main street of Trentham but well worth the drive. We have a Weekender in Kyneton and recommend our guests visit there. I almost dont want to share as I want to be... More

Wow! I don't need to pay for shocking rude customer service and appallingly over exposed coffee. Guy behind the counter was horrid. I've given it 3 chances - no more. Food really was a little over priced for what it was - melbourne cafe culture 10 years ago.

I think it was the owner, he was the rudest man I have ever come across. We didn't even bother ordering although the menu didn't look very appealing anyway. It took more then 10 minutes for staff to even acknowledge us. We left and had a delightful lunch down the street at Chaplins.

As a local, I have previously enjoyed the wonders of the coliban food store. In its latest incantation I am not impressed. The service was ok, the food and wine average (apparently new chef?). There is still a great selection of delicious produce, including sensational imported cheeses and local small goods. Cosy, pleasant venue, just needs a good chef!

Colliban Foodstore is the best cafe/restaurant/store in Trentham! After a long drive from Adelaide it was perfect to stroll around the corner with the kids and have the Stack and perfect coffee!! Only problem is we don't have enough hands to carry the wine home!! Highly highly recommend for families or couples!!

Thanks to Paul and his staff for providing lovely food, great selection of wines, coffees and surprise birthday muffins. A very welcome break away from the weather in trentham last weekend. Highly recommended when visiting the area.

A year ago, as locals, we used to praise Coliban Food Store to the hilt and took all our visitors for breakfast there. So we were bitterly disappointed to drop in there for afternoon tea recently to find that after 10 minutes at an uncleared table and even after approaching the main counter where staff were chatting, we were comprehensively...
