Yeo Haus Coffee Hole

Yeo Haus – Coffee Hole

Who doesn’t love a cute hole in the wall? Especially with a cute black and white awning. The coffee run becomes even easier during the pandemic era with outside ordering for your favourite brew. The popular town of Port Elliot has many food options surrounding however, if you shimmy a little bit to the right, there is ‘Gang Gang Nice Day Deli’. I’ve heard their signature burgers- Spice Girl (cheeseburger with an Asian twist) and God’s plan (cheeseburger straight up) are the
way to go. A few seats are arranged on the lawn, if you are like me and can’t belt along the walking track at the same time.

used as a grain store originally when the wheat trade was booming. The building has served many purposes over the years including a sweet shop, grocery store, pet shop and most recently a surf store. The building has been lovingly restored and was renamed to honour its heritage.

De Groot Coffee

Best things to do in McLaren Vale De Groot | 2024

Four hundred years ago coffee was hauled across the globe in hulking sailboats, and losing half the crew along the way wasn’t unheard of. Luckily, things are a tad easier today.

But the craving for good coffee hasn’t changed. With nearly 30 years of combined experience in the coffee industry, De Groot Co. have dedicated the last few years to the pursuit of quality coffee.

De Groot Coffee Co. grew out of our insatiable love for coffee, and from their desire to
deliver truly good coffee to the people who share this love. Their major focus is on single origin coffee, this means coffee that is sourced from one specific location in order to
provide a flavour that is as unique as it is delicious.

Another quality coffee spot in Gawler Street in Port Noarlunga has been a great hit.

Goodness Coffee

On entering the stone building, you can’t help but divert your eyes to the wooden boards covering the floor pit and reminisce of this buildings original use. This is where for many a year local identity ‘Mr Crisp’ fixed our family cars – he was the friendliest grease monkey around and resided and lived on site right into his 80’s.

Goodness Coffee have kept the heritage feel and decorated simply but tastefully. There is a pleasant sitting area out the front and a small alfresco garden out the back. Bike racks and water for dogs included.

Jo Jo and Angel have recently taken over and added a few Jazz arvos and events. A deck and some vinyl is always at hand to create a great community vibe.
