“a gem in Geraldton”

Geraldton seems to be going through a bit of a renaissance these days, and Culinary HQ is one of the small businesses that is leading the pack in transforming this regional seaside town into a real foodie destination.
The cafe' is open for breakfast and lunch, and features a variety of light but tasty salads and sandwiches (eat in or take away) as well as sweet and savoury pastries that are to die for.
I especially enjoy the Thai beef salad and the oh-so-buttery mini quiches. The macaroons are delightful as well.
If you are passing through, this is your best bet for a fresh and modern lunch using the highest quality local, seasonal produce. If you live in Geraldton, why haven't you tried this place yet?

Interesting array of lunch options that don't include pie & chips. A little on the pricey side but then it is quality food.

Loved concept of choicing what you want from fridge and then staff assemble and deliver to you at table (if dining in). Healthy fresh salads and rolls

The range and quality of goods in this little shop in Marine Terrace, Geraldton, look impressive. And, judging by the customers seen through the window, Culinary HQ is popular. I called in there during an afternoon stroll this week and decided to return, on my way back to my B&B, and buy some cheeses and crackers. Sadly, when I returned at 4.40pm, it was firmly closed. Culinary HQ closes at 4.30pm! Surely a visitor-oriented business in a tourism city like Geraldton can afford to stay open until 5pm! To be fair, I must add that the nearby coffee shop, the Jaffle Shack, shuts at 4pm (an hour earlier than it should). I've enjoyed early morning coffees at the Jaffle Shack, but would have frequented it more if it had been open after 4.
