Most places in rural South Australia are poor in terms of food choice and quality. However DeVine has very good food indeed. My wife and I had a pulled pork and a beef brisket on foccacia and they were delicious. Service OK too.

My wife and I stopped by on a recommendation and were not disappointed. Ordered the tasting plate and chicken deli sandwich to share as well as a slice of baked caramel and vanilla bean cheesecake. Lunch was very good and the cheesecake was excellent. Good service, prompt and friendly. Sandwiches and cheesecake very well priced as well.

The tea varieties and the serving was very good. It is an honest little cafe that every town needs. Nice place to have a cuppa in between the VERY GOOD sights of historical interest in Penola. It is wheelchair friendly.

We popped in for hot drinks and were greeted warmly. Coffee was fine, but there were so many tea choices I was delighted. The Café was air-conditioned and there is outdoor seating as well.

We loved our stop at DiVine Cafe. We had the local produce platter and some scones with a coffee as a light lunch. My only complaint is I forgot to ask where the olives and almonds were from. What on earth was I thinking? Best of both I have ever had not a word of a lie. Scones more dense... More

Stopped for lunch and was very happy with the result. The coffee was really good (coffee roasted in Robe I think). It was made as ordered and was full of flavour and the right temperature. I had a Cuban sandwich which was full of pork and ham, as it should be, and was very filling.

Popped in for coffee and cake. Nice coffee and good service. It always seems busy when we have been past, a busy hub of Penola.😊

Divine is a more than slight exaggeration of our experience at this prominent yet very average Penolan cafe. Nothing exciting on the menu which contained an abundance of preprepared items. Overall lack of freshness in the fare.
