Tomboy, evolved from its owners’, Pia Hambour and Georgina March, initial dream of creating a shopfront to showcase their wholesale baking business, Box Brownies. The pair provides the gluten-free treats devoured daily at institutions such as Seven Seeds, De Clieu and Brother Baba Budan. Baked by March herself, Tomboy has an extended range of Box Brownies’ goods on offer to eat in or takeaway.
Primarily vegetarian, the seasonal menu gets chopped and changed every couple of days. The odd meat dish will be of the sustainable type, which fits with the duo’s ethos of healthy living, including using produce from their own veggie patch and sourcing local suppliers. Coffee beans come from their friends at Seven Seeds and a single origin will be on a rotation.
Tomboy is decked out with tables, chairs and light fixtures found from country op shops, antique stores and friends. March and Hambour are also supportive of local artists, with one of the café walls dedicated to rotating exhibitions.
