our story

Originally started in 1996 in Australia, Jones the Grocer was a passionate project derived from a desire to run an unconventional grocery store, café and cheese room. It was the first of its kind serving fresh, simple and delicious, artisan food along with the best flat whites before they were even a thing.

Several elements of our first Sydney remain and can be seen in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Shanghai and Singapore. These include a walk-in cheese room, communal dining tables, show kitchens, an exclusive range of gourmet private label groceries as well as freshly baked cakes, pastries and breads.

There are over 23 Jones the  Grocer stores around the world and we want to immerse diners, shoppers and anyone who happens to stumble in, into incredibly good artisan food in all its shared glory.

Gourmet food for everyday living.
