Baker Bear's Café is located close to the foreshore park at Port Broughton. Port Broughton itself is a popular holiday and weekend destination about 170 km north-west of Adelaide, on the York Peninsula. During a weekend trip, we recently discovered the delightful cakes offered by this café.

The first one pictured is a "Bee Sting". I have had "Bee Sting" slices at other bakeries and while they appear delicious, they are often very light on flavour. This Bee Sting was absolutely delicious. The bun tasted a little like Kitchener bun and the cream was honey flavoured. The top was clearly honey glazed and a generous layer of blanched almond shavings added to the flavour.

The second dessert pictured was a Custard Doughnut. This was discovered by one of my companions, who strangely, does not like cream! When they heard the doughnut was filled with custard, instead of jam and cream like a standard Berliner, they decided to have one. After discovering the doughnut tasted great, they asked how much they had paid (which had not been clear when purchased with coffee and other snacks) and finding it was a bargain at $1.40, they ordered a second doughnut.

For those of you who like healthier food, the Café had a range of pies, pastries and light meals. Their breakfast menu is available from 8-10 am, a "hearty breakfast" of two eggs, bacon and toast is $12 and the "big breakfast", which also includes tomatoes and mushrooms, is $15. Lunch choices include doorstops at $6.50, quiche and salad at $7.90 and a range of sandwiches and focaccia.

The premises are nice and clean and you can choose to sit indoors or in the larger alfresco outdoor area.

It was near closing time when these photographs were taken, so the light is low and the proprietor had begun packing up the chairs.
