“Great Big Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

My friend's burger was ENORMOUS. Very cute little cafe just down from the IGA. Good coffee. We sat outside which was pleasant but would recommend a cork hat or aerogard. Sitting outside reading The Islander newspaper. great way to wait for the ferry.

“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This is maybe the nicest food available anywhere on Kangaroo Island.
See for yourself!
Definitely try either a lamb yiros (doner kebab) or a famous Lenny burger (the chef and owner is called Lenny)
Penguin stop is a regular stop for locals when they want take away food, so that says something in itself.
Good value and friendly staff.
Just be sure to have some cash as there is no eftpos machine.
Recommended.

“Locals have lunch here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

We checked out a couple of local cafés for lunch and decided to eat here as there were a number of locals picking up takeaway. It is a cash only establishment which is frustrating but after a longer than anticipated wait our food arrived and we were glad we chose here. Food was fresh and servings were large. The lamb yiros was very flavorsome and great value and would easily serve 2 adults. Everything was clean but as it was in a back street there were no views.

“Tasty and Fresh”

Friendly staff, easy location to access. The food was fresh and tasty. We enjoyed the Thai Chicken Burger. Do yourself a favour and indulge in a muffin, you will not be disappointed!
