Were in Kingscote for 4 days and had a great time Visited Roger's Deli daily for coffee, possibly the best in KI. Every one (Staff) were very pleasant and helpful. Business up for sale so hope standard is maintained. Well worth a visit, meals also looked great

Went in to get two takeaway pasties and walked away twenty minutes later with a pasty & sausage roll! Too many people taking orders not enough managing the food. Clearly relying on their location and tourists to fund their inadequacies!

Dear Steve, I am very sorry it took so long for you to get served, and then obviously we had run out of some selections. At the moment we are experiencing busier than normal times with the Cruise Ships visiting the Island. We also find that because we are one of the only businesses that open reasonably long hours or...

It's kangaroo island, and as one of the very few brunch spots, don't expect city options/ prices. We had a hearty omelette which was expensive by city standards. It met out expectations and we were pleased to find a brunch option. Didn't try the coffee.

Stopped by for a quick bite to eat one lunchtime. Lots to chose from (perhaps too much!). Nice outside area which is dog friendly. Food came quickly - nothing particularly outstanding but nothing bad either. Had two nice take away coffees as well. Part of the cafe is a large shop and there are toilets too down the stairs at...

This cafe/deli offers inside seating and alfresco dining for breakfast and lunch. The local news-agency shares the premises. I enjoyed a delicious panini and milkshake. The prices were reasonable, the service was good and the food lovely.

We called in here and our girls had some of their homemade cakes which were delicious. They do a selection of hot food and wine by the glass or bottle.

We are regular visitors to KI. Every two or three years. Have enjoyed watching it become more tourist friendly but maintaining its charm. Our expectations of Rogers has always been tempered by KI's limitations Now it needs to lift its game. We had two bad coffee experiences here so not coming back. I am told the locals coffee elsewhere, we... More
