Originally a teacher’s residence, the Brookfield General Store has definitely come a long way. Established as a cafe and store in 1871, it serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Some residents affectionately refer to it as “The Shed.”

This neighbourhood corner store is where residents go to pick up their daily staples, such as bread, milk, and vegetables. Overlooking Brookfield Hall, the country-style cafe-slash-store has become the go-to place for residents on a quick grocery or pizza run. Tourists also make sure to swing by the popular store to complete their Brookfield experience.

 

What’s Inside

Step inside Brookfield General Store and you will immediately see what the store is all about. Shelves and shelves full of surprises line up the walls. There is literally something for everyone. Known for its eclectic mix of merchandise, the store has the requisite grocery items, fresh flowers from Madame Les Fleurs, and even a line of the store’s “Wanted” house-brand sauces.

For those who are looking to stock up on their meat supply at home, the store also offers organic meats from Sherwood Organic Meats. They also have free-range turkey on sale from GreenAg. A selection of Golden Grove wines is on display, while a rack of Jamwork jams will definitely spread good cheer among shoppers.

For rumbling tummies, the cafe at the front of the store is your best bet. You can also enjoy the bucolic view from the back verandah. If you’re coming down for breakfast, don’t miss out on their Brooky brekky roll that consists of aioli, spinach, fried egg, crispy bacon and the cafe’s popular BBQ sauce, served on a toasted roll.
