Visitors and locals of the South have found a new place to dwell, with the combined delights of real coffee and freshly baked bread.
The word is out, and patrons are flocking to a place that combines two of my favourite things: Bread and Coffee.

Home Grain bakery now comprises two stores. The original in Aldinga, and its sister store in McLaren Flat.

The team at Home Grain bakery are setting a very high standard indeed.

Bread selection includes sour dough and plenty of seeded varieties, including caraway seeds.

The combination of the smell of freshly brewed coffee and baked bread is hard to beat.

The folks at Home Grain renovated an old store in Aldinga in 2011 to produce the very popular bakery spot in this coastal town. The owners have decided to keep things local. Going with coffee sourced from a local roaster, Villere artisan coffee roasters.

The bakery offerings also use many ingredients sourced from local farmers, growers and milk companies. Owner Toff West also supports OZ Harvest Food rescue, one of the amazing charities collecting left over products and delivering them to those in need.

The bakers are also looking to expand making further renovations when SA Water connect the historic part of Aldinga to the town's existing sewerage system. Which would allow an increase in seating and the installation of toilets for patrons.

Flowing on from the success of Aldinga Home Grain bakery a newly created store is now up and running at McLaren Flat.
This too is a renovation of an old General store. They are making a habit out of rejuvenating old buildings.

The owner here reports the whole building was gutted and redone.
There are plans underway to build a new kitchen in the McLaren Flat store.

McLaren Flat store also houses the coffee roaster and blender for the coffee outlet Villere.

Plus 'Best vanilla slice I've ever had, doughnuts must be alright too... The boys ate the whole thing! Usually they just lick the icing off.'

Good Friday saw the Aldinga store buzzing with happy customers, me included.

Try the shops the locals adore.

if I'm heading down the south coast, this is a must for a stopover. Love that sour dough bread, and the variety of pies.

Almost every weekend we stop in and grab some ciabatta, their sourdough, or when they are sold out, a handful of baguettes, some sweet treats for my parents a coffee and a vegan pasty ( love meat, but the vegan pasty is amazing !) Now I'm going to have to get there even earlier to make sure there is anything left !! Their variety of cute 'sold out' stickers across their product board, are both amusing .. and frustrating !
