Blackberry Cafe

Top choice Cafe

in Thomastown

Warming soups come with pumpkin-seed-speckled soda bread at this bright cafe, whose menu highlights also include breakfast baps with dry-cured bacon and sausage, superb thick-cut sandwiches, gourmet sausage rolls and quiches (with goat's cheese and pine nuts or sundried tomato and ham). Much is organic; tarts and cakes are baked daily. Between noon and 2pm, it gets packed to bursting.

For €4.75, kids get a half sandwich, a chocolate florentine and locally made apple juice.
