On a recent trip to Hahndorf we stumbled across The White House...a beautiful restaurant with loads of charm in the Adelaide Hills. The owner spent time talking with us, serving food and clearing at the same time telling us a little about why they have changed the menu to burgers. It is, in my opinion the right move. In an...

In a town where some of the restaurants can be accused of trying to be too many things to too many people The White House stands out as a gem. "Burger season" delivered a lunch significantly above expectations. Faultless burgers on excellent brioche buns were a delight. Fries done just right and a balanced wine list underline the quality of... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and enjoyed a burger each. The menu is short and simple which meant what they served was very good. The staff was excellent at customer service. Highly recommended.

With our two very young children in tow we ate late in the afternoon and sat out side as to not annoy the other patrons (my two... More

The burgers are very nice, I found the bread roll to be quite light and fluffy with a sweeter taste which worked very well with the actual burger and toppings. We managed to get a seat in front of the fireplace which was perfect for a cold winters day.

Went for Burgers and wine. What can I say they were excellent and very pleasant staff too with a cosy atmosphere. The burgers weren't oversized and tasted delicious. We are local to Hahndorf and we will be back

For lunch we sat in what probably used to be the front room of this white cottage. There was an open fire and the room was warm and comfortable. The menu was brief which was good. I chose a soft bun cheeseburger and my wife had pumpkin bisque. The food was good and the service friendly. They insisted on waiving... More

What a wonderful cafe. We loved the ambience and the burger was sensational. A fantastic spot for lunch or dinner. Definitely helped to soak up all the delicious wines.
