Purple Possum Wholefoods and Cafe is located in St Marys in the scenic Fingal Valley. The Purple Possum is a wholefood store, a cafe and a mini-gallery plus a bric-a-brac shed in the garden all rolled into one.
The cafe’s mini-gallery section displays the works of local photographers, artists and crafts people. Nearby in St Marys there is a fibre and textiles gallery. The historic railway station just out of town is now an interesting memorabilia museum.
The quaint and quirky cafe is a meeting place for local townsfolk and a focal point for tourists. The Purple Possum offers tasty, healthy food, vegie burgers and fresh salads with herbs straight from the garden. Specialties include date scones and rhubarb cake baked on the premises. Coffee is served just as customers like it.
The wholefoods section stocks a large range of wholefoods sold in small or large quantities, as well as local honey, organic vegetables, sweets and special dietary needs.
The Purple Possum Wholefoods and Cafe is about 30 minutes from Bicheno to the south via Elephant Pass and 30 minutes from St Helens to the north via St Marys Pass. The East Coast beaches are 20 minutes away.
