The café provides opportunities for co-workers to experience working to a high standard in a restaurant situation without the pressures of a fully commercial enterprise. The café serves morning coffee, lunch, and afternoon teas during the week. The menu is vegetarian and uses the organic produce of the small market garden at Blackthorn. 


Hours of opening are Monday to Friday 9.30am-3.30pm (lunch is served between noon and 1.45pm).  


In the café we have our workshop produce for sale: seasonal homemade preserves, herbal products (teas, herbs, culinary and massage oils), unique handmade cards, gifts, jewellery and stained glass.


Also on sale is our artisan bread available to purchase from 12 noon Monday to Friday.
