Stopped here on the recommendation of family, and was not disappointed. Fantastic pancakes and fabulous selection, in this proudly family run business.

THE best big breakfast around without a doubt ! and coffee is good. This place is our family favorite. Lovely staff who are always friendly..especially under the pressure when its busy- they still keep a smile and good customer service. But the downfall lately is this little shop is getting way to crowded, leading to chaotic ordering, long waiting times,... More

We were driving through Gawler on a Sunday morning looking for somewhere for coffee, saw that The Java Hut was open and all the pavement tables were occupied, so thought if must be good. Inside was also busy but they found us a table and we enjoyed Blueberry Pancakes and drinks which were delicious. It was interesting that most of... More

A good idea to book especially on weekends. Good breakfast menu! Very good coffee and have almond milk so I was happy! Not alot of really healthy options on the menu but if you are hungover or looking for a treat you'll love it!

Went here twice on a recent visit to Gawler: once for coffee and once for lunch. Have an excellent understanding of gluten free requirements and a great menu to suit. Opens early for breakfast if that is important to you and is well located in the middle of the Main Street.

Great coffee but my banana cake was a tad stodgy Wow is the place busy! Obviously a really popular spot Lovely attentive staff I was a little confused about how to order and ended up in the payment queue rather than taking a table Turns out, orders are placed at your table.

The 'Tookie' pancake, bacon & egg breakfast and the Big breakfasts were great and good value, generous serves. My husband said the hot chocolate was ok, but I did have to ask the staff about my almond milk -extra $1- chai latte, which didn't taste of almond milk or chai, and wasn't very nice at all. They responded nicely explaining... More

Arrived on Sunday morning for breakfast at approx. 10am. We didn't have a booking, and they were extremely busy, but the staff were wonderful. Asked if we minded waiting, and after a short while we had our table for 3. 3 decent sized breakfasts - 1 big breakfast, 1 eggs benedict and 1 tookie meal, plus 3 coffees = $45.00... More

This is easily the best cafe in Gawler (not that Gawler has a thriving Cafe scene). The food here is of good quality, nothing special but enough to quench almost all appetites. The price for almost all dishes is the excellent value for money however. The $3.50 Muggachino has to be the best value cup of coffee in Adelaide.

Thank David C
