Be there before 2pm on the weekends because the kitchen closes even though they advertise "all day breakfast". Service ordinary, lack of staff training I would think, and the coffee is average; my order for a double shot flat white tasted more like a half shot.

A friendly well appointed café in the heart of Kingscote, with an array of delicious sweet and savoury menu choices. Not to mention good Vittorio coffee. With alfresco dining or indoor eating all needs can be accommodated. There is also an extensive range of magazines and reading material to purchase in the stationery section. Very good.

I am a local resident and have been eating at Rogers deli for over a decade. The food has never been anything special and it has always seemed to me to be quite overpriced but there is little choice in Kingscote. Roger has until now, always been pleasant to me. I am recovering from an emergency heart operation two weeks... More

We stopped here a couple of times for coffee then decided to try for lunch. Roger was really helpful in catering to our needs. The chef knocked us up some pasta with a lovely, fresh, tomato, garlic sauce which was really tasty and very filling. The food is mostly non vegan BUT they were very willing to make sure we... More

Probably not the best time to visit being the weekend of the Kangaroo Island Cup Races but busy is the time when cracks appear isn't it ? Menu Ok and service reasonable BUT absolute chaos behind the counter. Meals missed, coffees missed and all in all just a little disappointing. Luckily excellent food quality will be the lasting memory.

Thank you so much for your feedback and I am glad that you enjoyed the food and our Island. Yes the race weekend was a very busy weekend for all of us here and I am sure it looks like chaos behind the counter, ( often the local school children working on the weekends) do their very best to keep...

Sunday, the shop was packed with guests. I was buying 2 large take away coffee, 2 pies, 1 desert, two bottles of drinks. No one bothered to ask me if I needed a paper tray or bag to carry things. Coffee was OK but pies were just OK.

Visiting Kangaroo Island for the day on a cruise ship, we hired a car and found our first choice for lunch was a long way down a dirt road so instead we stayed in Kingscote and went to Roger's Deli for lunch. The decor was very basic and the deli shared its premises with the local news agency. Although there... More

Thank you for your feedback. I am happy you thought we had a great range of food, your $9 hot dog is with everything including extras such as onion, bacon, cheese and what ever sauces you like. Please do not forget we need to freight most of our supplies over to the island. We pride ourselves at Roger's on our... More
