“Pull over and stop at Rustic Blue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

After spending an afternoon at Flinders Chase we stopped at Rustic Blue for a coffee. The owners are delightful. Coffee and drinks were great after a full day. The gallery is not to be missed. Kangaroos on the property. They have done an outstanding job building this property and business. Wish I would have had more time to spend there.

“Lovely gallery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2012

We stopped by Rustic Blue on our way to Penneshaw. Its a lovely gallery with a nice outdoor area. We had a nice breakfast there and would return.

It was also the only place on Kangaroo Island where we actually saw kangaroos.

“gallery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Went in determined not to buy anything and came out after buying a beautiful numbered print . Well worth the visit with a good selection of jewellery,prints and originals by local and national artists of repute including Coralie and 'Smillie' who own and run the gallery.

“Make the effort to go in”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Great coffee, some interesting bits and pieces to look at in the gallery and nice food. Make sure u read the owners scrap book - interesting story and certainly they have poured their heart into the cafe. Also was watched by lazy kangaroos as we had lunch - a nice treat on the island.
