Gertrude & Mabel
A culmination of all things locally minded, Gertrude & Mabel takes its name from two Dutton Park street names – with owner Danielle Diacos’ mum’s mum living on Gertrude Street and her dad’s mum living on Mabel Street. Mismatched vintage furniture, fruit-adorned glasses, nostalgic cups and saucers, and embroidered cloth napkins enhance the original character of the shop – the ceiling roses and polished wooden floors adding to the country European feel. Everything is homemade at Gertrude & Mabel, or where the team needs to source products, they’ll seek out local butchers, bakeries and producers to support the local industry. The honey comes from Danielle’s bapou’s home beehives, while the coffee is sourced from Two Seasons and comes paired with Barambah Organic milk.
