Open from 6am we were very grateful that this place was relatively close by. Our hotel did have a few groceries available but we wanted to get eggs for breakfast and we were so glad that this General Store had them at not too excessive a price ($4 for a half dozen). Really sweet people running the place and quite... More

We went to this shop nearly everyday during our stay. It has everything you need! We got milk, bread, drinks and snacks from here and even had lunch one day

Cheapest food in Broome. Solid regular menu and daily specials eg lamb shanks chips and salad. Salads are huge and the chips are ENORMOUS. Friendly and professional service from Chinese ladies serving us. We were in Broome for a week: generally the food is terrible and over-priced. There was one exception (which isn't on TripAdvisor so no cigar there!) so... More

My husband and I got take away from here and they are the worst I have ever eaten. The chips tasted as if they had been sitting for too long. I had a piece of barramundi which tasted terrible. It was a small and very thin piece and the salad that came with it was not edible. This costed $19.... More

It's too late now to find out what went wrong with your meal but I do sincerely apologise and if... More

We were staying at CBCR and were desperate for some simple, down-to-earth food, and someone told us about this place. It is basically a take-away shop attached to a caravan park, but thank goodness it is here! In 35º midday heat, we walked a little over two blocks to enjoy an egg and lettuce sandwich* in the air-conditioned cool of... More

Cable beach general store was a great find. We were staying at Bali Hai resort which was close by. We found the food simple and fresh, a great take away place.
