My name is Colin and I’m the big bloke behind the counter who loves to talk food and wine with people who are passionate about quality ingredients and supporting Australian producers.

At Pasadena Fresh we go directly to the source for freshness and variety (which means we can give offshorers and locals a discount on their purchases).

Our bread comes from La Banette in Mona Vale, our fruit and vegetables come from Alex’s farm in Orange (next time you come in, ask to try one of his apples, they’re wonderfully sweet and crisp), our milk comes directly from farmer-owned Norco, and our fabulous chorizo comes from the justifiably renowned Eumundi Smokehouse. Our meat is free range and our eggs are organic.

We stock a wide range of Australian and international cheeses with crackers to suit every style (try the charcoal crackers with a heaven slice of blue cheese – it’s Pepe’s pick and it’s magic) and we’re working to source delicious new cheeses from country areas in NSW.

As the days get longer and summer tickles our taste buds, we’re planning to host grazing table evenings with cheese, olives, salamis and matching wines. So stay tuned…and if you need to replace your gas bottle or soda stream, we can help you there, too. Colin & Pepe Pasadena Pantry & Fresh
