Our family loved Rustic Blue so much we went back for a second visit the next day! the owners and staff were so friendly, the ice creams great on a hot day, the coffee tailor-made to my wife's orders was terrific, and the art and other craft was fascinating - we even bought a painting! and the outdoor seating was...

I recently visited Kangaroo Island with my two German visitors and one day we were looking for a stop for lunch. As soon as we entered the building we received a very warm welcome from the owner who chatted with us for a little while. We then entered the garden and were blown away by its unique beauty. We hardly... More

You should not miss this oasis and must plan a stop for lunch or even morning or afternoon tea. Great artwork, great home cooked food and sweet treats, and great people.

Iced coffee was fantastic (although the hot coffee wasn't great) The slices were divine. Enjoyed the outdoors & reading the books about how the place... More

We stopped for a quick coffee and ended up buying a pottery giraffe and having lunch under a big old tree. This is a lovely little spot in the middle of nowhere - 7 kilometres from Vivonne Bay. They have some great art and craft, good casual meals and lovely coffee. Prices are also excellent, I had a gorgeous white... More

This place really surprised us how relaxed, fun and interesting something can entertain your day on the island. Smiley and Carolie are very friendly and proud owners of this gallery and spa resort. We loved to browse the art, have a nice lunch and just sit down and enjoy the flowery garden en roos in the background.

We saw Rustic Blue listed in the map as a cafe stop between Kelly Hills Cave and Vivonne Bay and almost wrote it off as one of those cafes serving mediocre food. We are so happy that we took a chance to turn off into the estate instead of heading towards Vivonne Bay for our lunch. The place was beautifully... More
