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

We stopped just for a quick lunch or a snack. Place looks so much better when you actually drive in. Beautiful garden setting, great coffee and sandwiches. Kangaroo eating grass right next to the fence. Very pieceful place and good break while travelling in the island.

Called in for a cake and coffee whilst travelling around the island. It was nearly closing but the owners couldn't be happier to serve us. Interesting gallery and fabulous gardens. Would highly recommend you pop in on your travels

We stopped off not expecting much, but boy were we wrong! A cute, artistic garden/cafe/gallery in the middle of nowhere. Better still was the food and service. Definatley a must for a break and refreshments on the island.

Being on Kangaroo Island, this cafe is special, utterly special in it`s location, design, animal viewing, and chats to the owner#the menue itself is small but promises fresh ingredients which is best to have. good coffe. the cafe offers inside and outside seating, whereas the outside seating is designed by several artists and their skill. inside decoration will not rest...

With gallery attached and with pretty gardens and views this makes for a great stop in a bit of the island where the other offerings we found were lacklustre. Friendly owners.
