Cactus Kangaroo Island

:: 59 Dauncey St, Kingscote – Kangaroo Island, SA



Cruising down the main stretch of Dauncey St in Kingscote, Kangaroo Island, we stumbled upon the cutest little blue and white cafe – Cactus! With a big tree out the front providing plenty of shade and big picnic tables, it was the perfect spot to feed our coffee addiction.

The vibe here is so happy and relaxed, with chilled out music playing, there’s awesome wall art to one side, and the coffee and fresh juice is made right in front of you at a little bar! Brekky is served from 7am and lunch service finishes up at 3pm so you’ll see people popping in and out all day.

And the food… ohhhh the glorious FOOD!!! We’d been driving for a couple of hours so we were absolutely fading away by the time we stopped, and Cactus definitely delivered the goods!

    Yes, best cafe in town!
    As local I try my best to go there every week end for lunch with my kids and wife …
    The tacos are superb and the coffee great (I’m quite picky on coffee because I’m Italian!
    Well done guys, great to have you here!
