Motherduck Cafe - Goolwa
Situated in a 100+-year-old building that's been transformed into a contemporary but homely eatery, Motherduck Cafe is the perfect hangout for Goolwa visitors looking for a place to rest and fill-up between shopping, visiting the galleries or heading out for a day on the water. Owner and chef, Mel, loves using local and seasonal produce in her cooking and delivers a great menu that will please both traditionalists and vegetarians a like.
There are lots of egg and bacon options, plus buckwheat pancakes, hotcakes, a speciality plate for those wild about mushrooms and much more. The drinks menu includes healthy choices such as pressed juices (try the Hold Your Horses with apple, spinach, cucumber, celery, kale, kiwi, mint and parsley), smoothies, kombucha - plus bullet proof coffee and naked chocolat. Motherduck is a must visit!
Pipi's - Middleton
A real favourite with locals and visitors alike, Pipi in the heart of Middleton’s main street, caters for everyone and by that, we mean coffee-craving adults, hungry kids and furbabies (there‘s a human and dog-friendly courtyard!) Breakfast offerings are seasonal yet innovative with the cafe's aim being to create a beautiful and friendly space for people to enjoy honest and locally sourced food and great coffee. Current specials include pancakes with strawberries and lime syrup, fresh fruit, vanilla ice cream and coconut and macadamia crunch. Yum!
