If you haven’t had the pleasure of sinking your teeth into a crunchy, crumbly roll filled with cured meats and assorted cheeses, then you’re seriously missing out. Luckily I know where to find Perth’s Best, so you can ditch that soggy old sandwich.
I would suggest walking into the Re-Store with an empty stomach and a full wallet, because this Italian delicatessen has the largest selection of European goods around Perth. Grab a ticket and join the queue to be served by one of the friendly Italian mumma’s behind the counter. Once you’ve got your $8 roll filled with Proscuitto, Salami, Cheese and Antipasto mix, have a stroll through the store and pick up a pack of their freshly baked Crostoli – one packet will have you hooked.

Pretty much everything that’s loaded into your continental roll is fresh local produce, so it’s no wonder this place packs in a crowd on a Saturday afternoon. Go in for a continental roll and walk out with olives, cheeses and a basket full of fruit and veg. Their Kangaroo Salami is also highly notable, if you’re into that kind of thing.

At Charlie’s you can have your continental roll (and eat it too). Once you’ve had arguably one of the best continental rolls around town, grab a trolley and go crazy on the produce. From fresh pasta to meats, olives, pickled veg, biscuits and Italian cakes, there’s nothing you can’t find here.

If you’ve ever wanted to visit Italy for the food, take a trip to Kingsley and check out Passione. From the hanging salami to the home made foods, it’s practically Italy in Perth. The family run shop offers up seriously over-sized continental rolls, because Europeans don’t do ‘small’ sized anything. And if you’re planning on going in just to ‘browse’, think again.

Besides the fact you can find everything to make the perfect antipasto board here, their continental roll game is insanely strong. With extra’s like artichoke or fresh chilli, you’ll never want a packed lunch again. And if the cheese selection is too overwhelming for you, the staff here are really good at helping you take home half the shop.
