Stockroom on the map

Stockroom was featured in The Australian newspaper's Travel Section on Saturday November 13!

In an article by travel writer Michelle Rowe about Piper Street - "Kyneton's newly minted regional style precinct" - Stockroom was described as "dazzling", and "a well-curated mix of art, design and fashion from more than 100 local creatives".

Stockroom owners Jason Waterhouse and Magali Gentric also received a mention - read the full article here.

And just 3 days later in The Age's Epicure food magazine, Stockroom's coffee caravan Winnebagel was also given a great review on Page 2!

Owned and operated by Jason's friend Drew Mason (right), Drew is quoted as saying that he is having "the time of his life dispensing coffee and "silly snacks" every weekend", from Winnebagel, housed at the converted 1860s former wool factory, now art/design/maker space.

His awesome "nostalgic snacks" (ie homemade chocolate crackles) also get singled out for praise..

In September this year, Drew's mobile cafe was also discovered in The Australian newspaper by their resident 'Food Detective'. Read the article.

Nice to see Melbourne journalists venturing out of the 'big smoke' to see what's cooking in the regions...

Speaking of which - very soon we'll be able to tell you about more exciting media coverage coming up for Stockroom in the new year - stay tuned to this blog!

And also coming soon - a feature interview on the Stockroom blog with Winnebagel's Drew Mason to tell you more about his great coffee caravan!
