We were famished after a very long day of driving on the Island (in poor weather) when we came across the bakery in Parndana. You'd be hard pressed to find a more helpful or friendly proprietor in all of Australia! Menu selection was huge, serving sizes just as big. You filled our tummies and brightened our day. Thank you 😊

This place is a handy stop for supplies but unfortunately the coffee was not at all good. Tasted like the milk was either long life or had been overheated. I was expecting a selection of buns etc but no fresh baked.

We have had a number of reviews in the past expressing enjoyment of our cafe/ bakery, its drinks, menu and products and it is of concern to learn you were dissatisfied. I wish you had spoken to either myself or my husband as we would've gladly... More

This is a small grocery store that offers personalized, top-notch service. Jenny and her husband were so helpful arranging for special items we requested and made our stay on Kangaroo so special.

After MANY disappointing and very expensive breakfasts in Australia this little bakery was neither disappointing nor expensive. Jenny was actually wanting to exactly satisfy my eclectic desire for a dry cappuccino and the croissant was generously filled with a delicious combination of what I ordered!

My wife and I,visited Parndana during our holidays on KI, after we had seen most of the island, and came across this bakery-cafe-supermarket. Having no other options near by, we decided to give it a try and was a good decision. The food simple but tasty and beautifully presented, a cappuccino that even big city cafes would be jealous of...

We stopped in Parndana because the little one got hungry during our daily trip and we had a pretty good experience. It is bakery, supermarket, cafe all together so you can buy also fruits for example. People are very nice and friendly. Btw, thanks for the Vegemite hint! :)

Stopped for lunch.. Thought it was actual bakery so was sort of bakery, supermarket, coffee spot, takeaway all in one. Had lunch and whilst ok and filled the hole, was expecting full bakery range.... Could be because of long week end but was ok and filled a spot. Owners very nice people and helpful.

We stopped by to buy lunch and there was a great choice of sandwiches made fresh to order and pies freshly baked too. Limited shop for food, but good for essentials and emergency food purchases. Very welcoming and friendly owners.
