Kangaroo island is a very relaxing peaceful island with lots of friendly people. The size of food portions in food outlets is nearly double that of ADELAIDE with prices usually lower. It also tastes fresher. Rodgers deli has a good outdoor setting with good reading materials. Recommend KI highly especially if you want to get good customer service with a... More

When I asked my mate (whose parents live in Kangaroo Island) for a recommendation for a place to have a casual lunch, he said "Roger's" without hesitation. I can understand why. The food is simple, honest and good value. They have won awards for their pies and pasties. But they won us over with their service. We weren't that hungry... More

Go there less now as have found other places with more variety and service. The range and presentation are good but not exciting. Can do with a revamp to bring the wow back into it from a few years ago.

We arrived on a early morning ferry and very starving. Drove into Kingscote and asked about a place for lunch. Everyone directed us to Roger's Deli. The inside reminded me of a "60" country store, with all of its magazines, sundries and other items you just have to have. We ordered our food at the counter, were given a number... More

Had breakfast at Roger's recently. Delicious food and great coffee. What more can you ask? It was a freezing cold morning, blowing a gale and raining, so we sat in Roger's window, warm, Wi-Fi (how good is this), watching the world rush past, brollies to the fore. Of course, since we were off for the day, we armed ourselves with... More

We popped in for coffee on our way elsewhere. Good selection of pastries and cakes. Coffee was fine. Book shop and newsagent and cafe all in one Was ok but didn't like owner/ boss telling staff off for everyone to hear. Not appropriate and I would never work for someone like that. Unprofessional. Spoilt the visit

Light lunch and a thousand magazines to choose from...thought we'd never drag our wives away ! Roger has created a little wonderland in Kingscote where the pies, rolls, soup and other offerings are all just what the doctor ordered...and he's always on hand to offer advice, local knowledge or his opinion on Rupert Murdoch ! Thanks Roger and Co. Bravo.
