Schoolhouse Thornton Cafe


Thornton Primary school established 1870, reimagined as Schoolhouse Thornton 2020.

Schoolhouse is a country-style café with a Melbourne twist. Excitingly they are bringing specialty coffee roasted by Inglewood to this beautiful part of Victoria. Only a two-hour drive from Melbourne CBD located in Thornton, between Eildon and Alexandra.

Inglewood coffee, old school milkshakes, ice cream spiders, classic jaffles, smashed avocado toast on fresh Schoolhouse artisan bread and a seasonal dine-in and take away menu. With an Artisan Bakehouse on-site, our cakes, bread and pastries are made fresh each day. You can also pre-order your birthday or occasional cake with us.

Join us one Sunday each month for our signature High Tea afternoon, dates are released via our Instagram.

Schoolhouse has a strong community spirit with a focus on supporting local providers and sharing the history of Thornton Primary.

Picnic tables, chalk for days, a cricket pitch and rolling lawn is guaranteed entertainment for the entire family and even your leashed furry friends.

If you are looking for quiet, we have you covered too! Join us inside Schoolhouse, connect to the Wi-Fi and enjoy over an Inglewood coffee.

We are excited to welcome you to Schoolhouse soon.
