Beaconsfield may continue to grow in population, but so too are the great local businesses and eateries.
Over the past few weeks, we have seen the Bertoncello brothers move to the Old Beaconsfield Post Office. O.MY has been a great addition to Beaconsfield, and it has been great to see it grow over the years. Not only has it become a favourite by locals, the brothers’ passion for locally grown produce and exquisite talent to create a dining experience like no other, has gained the attention of the industry nationally.
Woods Street is also home to my local coffee spot; Robbie’s Café. It is always great to see Robbie’s smile each morning I grab my morning coffee and catch up with locals- although how big his smile is, is always dependent on the Tigers’ performance that weekend. It is not only the coffee that makes Robbie’s so great; it’s his and his staff’s warm hospitality.
It is not just our local eateries on Woods Street that are gems of Beaconsfield. It is also our local tattoo artist Mick Hayes from Purple Haze. Mick is not your ordinary tattoo artist; he will not just tattoo anything, anywhere, he genuinely cares about his clients and takes a lot of pride and care into the work he produces. As I discussed with him in an upcoming episode of Brad’s Brew Podcast, Mick discusses the sense of responsibility he feels towards his customers that leads to multiple generations turning to Mick for their ink.
O.MY, Robbie’s Café and Purple Haze are just only three of the many gems Beaconsfield are lucky to be home to, and we are lucky that more and more local businesses are popping up for us to enjoy. Mick Hayes will feature on Brad’s Brew Podcast on October 1st, and I look forward to sharing more stories of Beaconsfield locals on the podcast. In the meantime, you can hear more local stories from the area via www.bradsbrewpodcast.com.
