Welcome to Zest and Thyme

One of Kangaroo Island’s best dining experiences.

You’ll find us near the Cape Willoughby lighthouse, on the Dudley Penninsula.

When you get here you can enjoy spectacular panoramic sea views, a pleasant glass of Kangaroo Island Wine and of course our food.

Specializing in contemporary, light home style meals, with our personal touches. We are sure you will find something satisfy you.

Many of our meals and desserts are gluten free, and we are happy to help with any dietary requirements, whether it be vegan, vegetarian or food allergies.

We are licensed so you can enjoy a relaxing drink with your meal and for the coffee lover, we have excellent locally roasted coffee, that you can sip to start your day or relax after a good meal.

The atmosphere at our café is enhanced by the great sea views, so relax and unwind after a busy day adventuring. During cooler months  migrating southern right whales and their calves can  be seen if you’re lucky. Local kangaroos and other wildlife often appear close to our deck – a real  dining adventure. The kids will love our special play area too.

We also serve ‘Sunday’ breakfast until 11:30am everyday (because when you are on holiday everyday is Sunday).

All desserts and cakes are made on premises, with favourites like Hazelnut Brownies and Lemon Cheesecake.
