We read all the great reviews and walked up and down the street trying to find it. The address on TripAdvisor was wrong (its opposite the deli) so I've sent thru updates to TripAdvisor.

We quickly discovered that the best place to have breakfast at a very reasonable price was at The Lighthouse Cafe. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is yummy. You must try their French toast with maple syrup and bacon :-)

Popped in for breakfast on our last day. Good generous sizes for food. Service good and sitting outside in the Sunshine was a bonus after months of rain. Friendly staff. Limited to places in Kingscote but this one was fine and we enjoyed our breakfast

Not only is this establishment guilty of having a great coffee, they are very accommodating and are so welcoming. Also serving hot food hot!! They are wonderful allowing me to take my dog under the verandah too so they are pet friendly. . I can recommend a visit if you're in Kingscote on Kangaroo Island. Call in and say hi..

Food was reasonable and what we expected for a take-away meu with seating. Considering limited eating options during July in Kingscote, this was fine for our purposes.

We got into town a little early and we were thinking that we would not find anywhere to eat but the cafe was open. We entered and were very unsure if they were open and we could not have been more welcome. The service was just wonderful and food nice and hot...... Plus the best coffee.

We visited because our first choice had stopped serving. The food was just OK. Nothing spectacular especially the chips. We all really enjoyed the ice cream thouhh especially licorice flavour. The setting is OK though there are no bathroom facilities in the restaurant

Located on the main street we offer fresh homemade food accompanied by some of the Island's best coffee and cakes for which we try to source our ingredients locally. We aim to cater for most needs and are child and dog friendly. Our hand made South Australian fudges are to die for, home made KI honey ice cream has been added to the menu.
