Lovely pause on your way to the rugged West of Kangaroo Island

Interesting KI art, jewellery, stationery to browse, excellent coffee and light lunch on the verandah, watching blue wrens in the gardens, kangaroos also! Lovely break on a journey to rugged, spectacular Cape du Couedic and Remarkable Rocks.

My boyfriend and I stopped here for lunch during our trip on Kangaroo Island. We first walked through a gallery with different types of art work and things you can buy. The menu was pretty small as the owners were leaving on holiday soon. We ordered the Italian meatballs, toasted sandwich, side salad, a double espresso and a moccacino. All... More

Beautiful spot. Could sit here for hours and hours. People are lovely. Took a friend there to have a treatment and she absolutely loved it. Only snack type foods available at this time of year (cakes, toasties etc) but we knew that so were prepared and had a nice coffee and cake. Will definitely visit again in summer.

There is so much to love about this place. We've enjoyed dining alfresco from the deck, getting up close and personal with a joey, a lazy afternoon when a band is playing, meandering around the gardens, and enjoying the gallery where you'll find an eclectic mixture of contemporary, rustic and home grown art and a great place to take home...

Rustic Blue is listed under "Restaurants", and whilst the food is excellent and the sorroundings unique, I foud the gallery to be even more interesting. The range of really beautiful "things", from jewellery to prints to scarves, pottery, glass and sculptures was exceptional. They have each been selected by the charming and talented owners, Coralie & Smiley, both artists in... More

Called in on our way to Flinders Chase National Park. This is a interesting cafe with some lovely local art works, jewellery and provisions. We stopped for lunch and had the Meatballs with chilli sauce. They were tasty and plenty of them. The cafe has a varied selection of lovely gifts.

Only stopped for a coffee which was very good did not have time for a meal. The grounds are well kept with many interesting artfacts. The toilets were the cleanest I've ever seen.
