Although the Kapunda Bakery, situated on Kapunda's main street, looks much like other bakeries upon entering, the immediate impression is also one of cleanliness, freshness and good organisation. Almost everything you see on offer is baked fresh on the premises and temptingly displayed. You can even order specialty birthday and wedding cakes.
The bakery also offers a bright, airy dining room where you can sit and enjoy a tea or coffee and a meal from a comprehensive menu. As well as a broad selection of pies and pasties including vegetarian options, the Kapunda bakery also offers a 'big breakfast,' a variety of soups, quiche, salads, rolls – even a traditional pie floater. Then there is a long list of sweet treats including cakes, pastries, slices, ice cream and cool drinks.
There are pots and pans and various implements, along with the original oven and fireplace. It's easy to imagine how difficult it must have been working in this kind of an environment with the heavy iron tools and pots; a stark difference to the roomy, bright shop upstairs.
Tanya and her staff at both locations are friendly and welcoming. The Kapunda site is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 9am to 3pm and Sunday 9.30am to 3pm. The Eudunda site is open Monday to Friday 8.30 am to 5.30pm, Saturday 8.30am to 2pm and Sunday 10.30am to 2.30pm.
