Eating Local

The Valley has a small but well curated collection of eateries.  For a fabulous local pub experience head to the Friendly Inn. Using locally sourced produce this wonderful pub with its community garden, children’s play area and outdoor chess set is a community mainstay. In winter a blazing open fire is a terrific companion.

Kangaroo Valley Farmers Market is held on the second Sunday of each month. It runs from 8am and is located behind the Friendly Inn.  Local produce. Meat, fruit, vegetables, herbs, eggs, jams, pickles, pastries, cakes, local honey, biscuits, olive oil, and lots more! 

For those seeking coffee, a sustaining breakfast or a delicious lunch The General Cafe fits the brief. Be sure to pick up a loaf of their locally made Sourdough! The Hampden Deli offers a range of pastries and sandwiches to go with their excellent espresso. They pickle, ferment, brine, cook, knead, bake and serve naturally the best housemade deli produce they can. For something special, plan ahead and book one of their special dining experiences. And if you don’t feel like cooking, both offer a range of high quality take home meal packs.

To spoil the kids (young & old) try “Sweet As” or the Kangaroo Valley Fudge House and Ice Creamery. Both are on the main street, and have a terrific selection of gelato and old time favourites sweets.

Southern Pies produces mouthwatering sweet and savoury pies, sausage rolls and cheese and spinach rolls.

For fresh modern Australian and Thai food try Jing Jo. They source their produce from local producers as well as their own veggie patch.

Where-ever you choose to eat, be sure to book!

Just a short drive away

25 minutes away is the foodies mecca of Berry. Don’t miss out the opportunity to visit the Berry Donut Van. Mingle with locals and visitors alike while your piping hot donuts are cooked to order. The coffee is good too!

For something more substantial, the Berry Sourdough Cafe and the Milkwood Bakery serve up fresh French inspired fare to a superb quality.

And for the best gelato in Berry, you have to go to Il Locale Gelato, all made locally with milk produced from the nearby Pines Dairy.

For those seeking a special wine to accompany dinner a visit to Justin Lill Wines. The owner proudly admits to trying everything he sells and the result is an astonishing array of wines complete with tasting notes for every bottle.

Looking for some high quality, local meat to bring back to the house for a bbq or an evening roast? We recommend you check out the Berry Butchery.
