This cafe is great for lovely fresh salads and sandwiches. Cakes looked amazing but didn't partake. Coffee and hot chocolates are very good. Good place to visit but staff need to smile☺

If you're a picky eater then you won't be able to have a proper meal they have yummy desserts but quite expensive. All though it is in a good location I would not be running back.

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!
