About 12 months in the making, Ruggy’s Food & Wine opened on Brighton Road in Mid-December last year, and their recent launch attracted a glamorous and eager crowd to the seaside suburb.
The formal unveiling revealed the latest project for the recently redeveloped shopping centre. Already home to an upmarket Foodland and the neighbouring Cellarbrations bottle shop; the Ruggy’s addition has brought a daytime café, a lunch destination and rather excitingly, an evening bar.
It seems the Rugless family’s deep-rooted origins in Brighton and their ambitious visions for the area, are what led to the birth of Ruggy’s. And when it’s only metres away from long, wide aisles filled with wines, beers and spirits – as well as the gourmet-like grocery store next door – patrons should expect a memorable dining experience.
By day, the Ruggy’s café brews using beans from Coffee by the Beans, giving them another competitive edge in the southern suburb. CBTB is already a well-known name in the west, for its great caffeinating abilities and modest suburban café vibes.
For Ruggy’s, community spirit and a family-friendly atmosphere remain important elements. Both Cellarbrations and Foodland will still commit to stocking a premium and wide range of products.
The two stores will also come together later this month, for the Food and Wine Fair. Running in mid-March, the event will offer tastings of different wines and complimenting foods, all available for purchase at the supermarket.
