FIVE THINGS: New places to eat in Rockhampton

THERE'S plenty of culinary choice in Rockhampton, with several new food stores opening in recent months.

1. The Little Olive

This William St cafe is a quaint addition to the city's CBD, featuring as much local product as possible from light fittings to furniture.

The store offers freshly baked goods each day, along with salads and hopes to progress to take-away dinners and cookery classes.
