Coffee is treated as a star attraction at Blake’s. Maybe it’s because of our Italian grandparents or maybe it’s just because we need it to function properly with all the late nights and early mornings that running a bakery brings. We sell great coffee to drink in or take away. You can relax knowing great care will be taken with every single coffee, because we know that’s how we judge whether we will visit a cafe more than once.
We took a long time and great care choosing a supplier that matched our passion for making sure that every cup tastes great. We chose HasBean, and we are really pleased with our choice. You’ll always find a good range of beans and ground coffee to drink at home. Good coffee must be fresh, so we order only small batches, so you know the coffee will always be super-fresh.
We stock a range of interesting wines that you certainly won’t find in a supermarket. When you buy wine from Blake’s, you can be confident that we think it is delicious and offers good value. Most of our wines originate from Europe, and are usually from smaller estates. Many of the wines are organic or biodynamic viticulture and we even stock some that are gluten-free. We also stock a good range of great local craft ales and some beautiful ciders from nearby.
We stock Waterloo Teas, a range of loose leaf organic teas, many of which are caffeine-free. Some of our favourites include tangerine and ginger, peppermint, English breakfast and Rooibos.
Last but not least you’ll find a good range of speciality soft drinks that we’ve selected because they taste great.
