After MANY disappointing and very expensive breakfasts in Australia this little bakery was neither disappointing nor expensive. Jenny was actually wanting to exactly satisfy my eclectic desire for a dry cappuccino and the croissant was generously filled with a delicious combination of what I ordered!

My wife and I,visited Parndana during our holidays on KI, after we had seen most of the island, and came across this bakery-cafe-supermarket. Having no other options near by, we decided to give it a try and was a good decision. The food simple but tasty and beautifully presented, a cappuccino that even big city cafes would be jealous of...

We stopped in Parndana because the little one got hungry during our daily trip and we had a pretty good experience. It is bakery, supermarket, cafe all together so you can buy also fruits for example. People are very nice and friendly. Btw, thanks for the Vegemite hint! :)

Stopped for lunch.. Thought it was actual bakery so was sort of bakery, supermarket, coffee spot, takeaway all in one. Had lunch and whilst ok and filled the hole, was expecting full bakery range.... Could be because of long week end but was ok and filled a spot. Owners very nice people and helpful.

We stopped by to buy lunch and there was a great choice of sandwiches made fresh to order and pies freshly baked too. Limited shop for food, but good for essentials and emergency food purchases. Very welcoming and friendly owners.

We called in here for morning tea and had a terrific coffee and a cake. I was assured by the owner that it was not a cake counter but a health food bar. With that information I was able to indulge myself with a lovely (and healthy) custard tart. Really nice people. You can also charge up your electric car... More

This Café was just what we needed after or ferry trip from the mainland. Plenty of room with a good selection of food and drinks. A nice place to start our holiday on Kangaroo Island

Nice cakes but not a great variety. Good service from friendly staff though. The pies looked nice too.

Bakery and local supermarket in one place. has a well deserved reputation for great pies. And thanks to some local knowledge shared by one of the staff we found a magical uncrowded beach that we went back to again and again. But I'm not telling you where it is!
