What Are We About?

Think Local Community Cafe is a non-profit social enterprise set up to service the caffeine needs of the Thornbury community. We use only the best Fairtrade organic coffee, roasted in Sunbury by Just Planet and have a range of ready to eat sweet and savoury goodies, for breakfast on the go or a refuel to get you through the day.
Starting with a mobile coffee cart, our vision is to grow into a container cafe located at front of the Thornbury Church of Christ (390-398 St Georges Road Thornbury). As a social enterprise, our desire is to channel all profits back into the community, initially in the form of community meals programs before expanding to other community care initiatives.

Food Relief

Our Food Relief Program has really grown over the last four years and since the beginning of the pandemic we have seen a sharp increase in community need.  Our produce ranges from gourmet sourdough bread, fresh fruit and vegetables, frozen pre-cooked meals and various pantry items.

Smith Street Community Pantry

The Smith St Community Pantry has been supplied, refurbished and installed due to the generosity of the local community.   It is located on the church premises but it is managed by local neighbours and friends who keep it clean and check it from day to day.

Community Meals Initiative

On the 4th Sunday of every month we cook a fresh roast meal (vegetarian options are available). People are invited to register to sit down and enjoy a meal together.
Our goal is to expand this project and have sit down meals available multiple days a week. All profits from the cafe will be channelled to help fund this initiative.
