I'm a mother, wife, writer and online store owner. I've lived in the southern suburbs of Adelaide all my life.

The perfect bakery for everyone
The more I write for WeekendNotes the more I start to see my state through the eyes of a visitor. I see attractions I have never noticed before, restaurants I haven't visited and areas of great beauty I haven't appreciated until now.
The drive down to Yankalilla south of Adelaide is a great way to see the city turn to suburbia then country. The rolling hills, the farm animals, the glimpses of the ocean all add to the experience. Why not take the day and go on a road trip? Act like a tourist in your own backyard and try something different?
A place that is definitely on the list to visit would have to be the Yankalilla Bakery. Set on the main road, the bakery is fresh, delicious, friendly and has plenty of room to move. Having said that, the lines still hint at the quality of the food and the popularity of the place.
Take a stroll down the main street while you eat your pastries of choice or sit inside or outside the bakery and enjoy a hot beverage (also available as take away).
Situated 65 kilometres from Adelaide, Yankalilla Bakery is worth a visit whether you're heading to Kangaroo Island, staying at the nearby Normanville or just heading out for the day.
Using as many locally sourced ingredients as possible including Fleurieu Fresh Milk and Normanville Meats, the bakery supports a plethora of small businesses, services and charities both near and far.
As you walk through the door you're greeted by the delicious smells of pastry, sugar and all things you associated with a traditional bakery. With seating inside and outside and take away always an option, you're sure to find the place inviting and friendly.
Choose from a large range of both sweet and savoury food including sausage rolls, pies, pasties, cakes, biscuits, fresh sandwiches and wraps... I could go on.
As well as offering some of the more classic foods, the bakery also caters for vegetarians, vegans and those who are gluten-free. Trust me when I say the vegan pasty is worth the drive. Gluten-free options include bread, cakes and wraps. Just ask the friendly staff or visit the website for further details and a list of products.
