The blackberry cafe is a great stop for a relaxing quick break. We stopped here for a mid-day cup of coffee and a snack. The scone with jam and cream is a must have if you stop here! Excellent place to visit while in Thomastown!

This is a great little cafe. Their homemade soup is fantastic no matter what the flavour is! I also defy you to resist a homemade cake. The carrot cake is always exceptional. It's nice to relax here and read the paper whilst enjoying a cuppa.
