My daughter & I had a veggie burger here with chips. It has a few tables for inside dining, with a magazine selection that would rival any Barnes & Noble.

Fabulous country cafe food. Great burgers, delicious garlic prawns and super yummy breakfast. We were here for lunch yesterday and came back for breakfast today. And we're now staying for coffee and cake. Yummy!!

a one shop for everything from wine tasting to food to a post office and newsagent ....the downside is the ridiculously expensive food

This is a deli but more like a cafe with a newsagency inside. We came here for breakfast and whilst we could look past the average breakfast (burnt toast), watching the birds flying around the tables inside (and watching one excrete all over the table next to ours) wasn't really pleasant to watch. Staff didn't bat an eyelid to this... More

Sorry you did not enjoy your experience at Roger's. You comment that the toast was burnt(for your liking) but do not mention the rest of your breakfast hopefully the rest was great. We would have happily replaced the toast if it was a little overdone for you liking. Being in a seaside and rural area the birds do from time... More

Great pies. The savory pie was very tasty. My wife had the potato pie, which turned out to have beef, a pleasant surprise for us, but some might not have wanted it. It was almost a small cottage pie, and was really nice. We also split a lamington, which was a dessert we had been wanting to try, and we... More

I am really glad you enjoyed your meal. Potato pies here all have meat in them with the lavishes of potato on top, and you are right they are a cottage pie, we will have to put a new sign up for them. Thanks for the feedback. More

My husband and I had a lovely breakfast here on our second day on KI - were were greeted by friendly faces and served up two scrumptious bacon and eggs meals to fuel us up for our busy day. A little pricey but worth the great food and service.

We had breakfast here on the last day... bacon and eggs with tomato. I think we could have shared one plate because the meals were huge, and totally delicious. Service was fast and friendly

I am afraid our experience of this cafe was as disappointing as some of the others below. We visited Kangaroo Island in March. The second time for me, the first time for my wife. We called in here on the afternoon we arrived, and ordered coffee and a couple of cakes. The coffee took longer than you would expect at... More

Cassidy & Sneakers – We stopped here for a quick lunch to get some burger and fries (don’t you tell me no lies) and it was very underwhelming, pretty average. Bulk of the service was left in the hands of what appeared to be 15 year old children. To be honest, we didn’t even finish our burgers. I guess this... More
