Visited Blessed cheese for brunch with my wife. Service was good and friendly, coffee was great, breakfast (we both had the blessed bacon and eggs) was ordinary. Very dry, poached eggs were well over done. Needed to eat in our jackets as the fire wasn't stoked on the brisk mid morning.

We enjoyed the Blessed Cheese "wine and cheese trail" experience on a day trip to the region. For $25 a head (excellent value) we received a cooler bag with four individually packed courses of delicious cheese, crackers, nuts, dried fruit, olives, chutney, chocolate etc. matched to a particular wine. There was more than enough food in each pack. We were... More

Stopped for lunch and ordered Welsh Rarebit. More than 1 hour later after reminding the staff we received 2 very small slices of sour dough smothered in tomato sauce which was supposed to be relish, with a small amount of grated cheese on top. Cost $15.50 Everyone was hungry and very disappointed.

I was hoping for more here. Although the atmosphere is okay it's not particularly warm or inviting. The fireplace wasn't lit on the very cold wintry day I visited, which if it were, would have rated higher in my opinion. The coffee was good but for a venue called Blessed Cheese, my biggest gripe was the lack of options of... More

This is a good café, and is sometimes very good, but not consistently. Standard of coffee varies, as does the breakfast. But its pleasant to sit in the back room by the fire. And when the coffee is good, all is well.

This is the second time we've been on the Cheese & Wine Trail so we've now done both their trails. The cheese and nibbles are delicious and the wineries treat you so well when you arrive. Most of them give you more than the normal sample amount! The cheese and nibbles are paired really well with the wines and it's... More

Soooo gurd, sooooo gurd Every time I come to this place it's soooo gurd! They have re decorated and slightly 'jujjed' up their menu but it's still delicious. Coffee is always strong, not too bitter and hot. The bacon and eggs are good quality local produce. I love a place that looks a little underwhelming and over delivers and this... More

Haven't been here in a while so popped in this morning for breakfast and coffee... sweetcorn stack, absolutely the best breakfast I had in ages around town. All those flavours, balanced perfectly. And the coffee is pretty great too. A must in McLaren Vale!

We visited for a midweek treat and both had a wonderful breakfast. Eggs and bacon with tomato relish and absolutely fantastic bread. Our service was great, coffee delicious. We will definitely visit again.

We dropped in our our way home after a wine tasting tour and bought a wide range of different cheeses. When we walked in, we thought we knew what we wanted, by the time we left, we had bought half of the shop!!! LOL The service was fabulous and the staff were very helpful letting us try many different cheeses.... More
