The Blackberry Cafe is situated on the corner of the main street in Thomastown and provides a traditional atmosphere complete with fresh, home-made baking and principally organic and locally sourced ingredients and produce. Originally an old shoemaker’s shop, it has been lovingly and extensively restored, retaining the eighteenth century frontage, with its characteristic large Georgian-paneled windows now painted a fresh tea green, and adorned with a magnificent sculptural blackberry.
The bright, airy interior has a comfortably minimal style, with a custom-made, hand-built counter displaying the mouth-watering cakes, tarts and scones, which are freshly baked daily by Jackie herself. “I am offering high quality, home-made delicacies, concentrating on natural produce with no artificial flavours or preservatives.”
History Of The Building
The building that houses The Blackberry Café has a magnificent history and was previously used as a cobbler’s workshop. Some artifacts from its previous life can still be seen in the shop today. We’re going to put together a history and slideshow on the building and post it here soon.
We’re very proud at The Blackberry Café to be able to support and help sustain local farmers and artisan producers. Our vegetables, cheeses, breads and more are sourced very close to home. We’re putting together a detailed list of our suppliers and will post them here soon!
