A fine place for a casual breakfast, brunch or lunch
Harry's Deli is a cafe within Wirra Wirra Winery. It is a fine place for a casual breakfast, brunch or lunch. One of the big benefits of this location is that while dining, the cafe visitors experience the ambience of the historic winery and also views of their peaceful native gardens and biodynamically farmed vineyards. Harry's Deli has a reputation for being the ideal pit-stop when you are touring the region for a quick coffee and takeaway snack. Another highlight of Harry's Deli is the friendly service and the use of local produce such as Clappis bread and Dawn Patrol coffee.

The Origins of the Name
Harry's Deli takes its name from a much-loved McLaren Vale character Harry Kilaitis, who was a gifted carpenter and spent many of his days working out of Sparrow's Lodge at Wirra Wirra. While well known to the locals, Harry flew under the radar, once admitting to never having a Tax File Number. He was your C.O.D. kind of guy. Harry's work graces the offices and cellar doors of a number of McLaren Vale wineries, but it was at Wirra Wirra where he made his mark transforming Greg Trott's dreams of oversized doors, tables and arches into timber masterpieces.

Went for breakfast yesterday, hubby was interested in the pancakes, had the Big Breakfast, which was delicious, and couldn't fit pancakes in. Means we need to return for another visit! Great service, food and location
