One shopper, Cass, said the store’s $5.50 coffee ‘stings’ but noted the pasta bar makes it all worth it.

Her video has been seen by more than 480,000 TikTokkers and gives the largest tour of the store which also has a fridge dedicated to perfect home-made pizza.

Her followers could hardly believe what they were seeing.

‘Where is this? We don’t have Woolies like that near me,’ one woman said.

‘That’s near my mum’s house, I showed her and she is way too excited,’ said another. 

The store also has a fresh truffle and cheese room, and a fridge dedicated to macaroons.

‘That’s it, I have to go. This is worth a road trip to see,’ said one woman from the city’s western suburbs.

‘I wish they had them like this out near Liverpool,’ one woman said. 

The supermarket also has a top-up station for detergents and other cleaning supplies.

‘Great to see a supermarket responding to consumer trends and moving away from harmful packaging.’

Another customer, foodie Adrian Widjy, shared a video of the store too – focusing on the fancy chocolate selection.

‘This Woolworths in Double Bay is so bougie,’ he said.

More than 80,000 people have seen the video with many blown away by the steep prices.

From $46 per kilo mint chocolates to $76 per kilo for vegan dark chocolate and $98 per kilo for chocolate truffles – the pick and mix section isn’t cheap.

‘Double Bay, double pay,’ one man said.

‘Those prices though,’ said another.

‘I couldn’t even go in there and breathe the air, that’s how broke I am,’ said another. 

But others defended the store.

‘I went there this morning, they have done such a great job – I am obsessed.’
