A small cafe selling baked goods and more
For something different, you may like to visit this cafe on the grounds of Regency TAFE. Here, you will find all the food made during the classes attended by the catering schools students. They come from all facets of hospitality training such as cooking, wine and beverages, butchery and smallgoods, restaurant service and baked goods.

Results Cafe is aptly named as it sells the 'results' of all the food the students make during their practical sessions. You never know what will be on sale, as the goods are the result of what they have been working on and will change from week to week. However, there is always some foods available in these lines-
Fresh meat products such as ready to cook such as roasts, marinated chops and sausages.
Bakery goods such as cakes and biscuits
Smallgoods such as deli meats and cheeses.
Wine and beer made at the TAFE's very own microbrewery.

When I visited, many locals had gathered to purchase some products and were sitting in the cafe having a barista made coffee. Some had a pile of baked good ready to take home. They had bought some South Aussie bee- sting cake. Prices are much cheaper than what you would find in stores, as the stock needs to be sold. I was also pleased to see some of the meat products were gluten-free.
Results Cafe is open Tuesday to Friday, from 10 am to 4pm during school terms and on some school holidays. You would need to call to make sure they are open. Parking was a bit of a problem here. In fact, we could not get a park at all and my friend had to drive down Days Road and wait for me. The cafe is to the east of the Days Road carpark and has no signage outside to direct people where to go. I had to ask some students walking about where the cafe was.

The cafe does not have a regular menu. It really is a case of turn up and pot luck as to what is for sale. But you will always be able to have a hot beverage and a cake of the day. Take a cooler bag for small goods or meat products to take home, as they will surely be something that entices you. It is good to know your business here is supporting students learning their new trades. And we wish them much success.
What delights do they have today? Image by Kat May
