Just Penny’s – Yankalilla, SA

98a Main South Road, Yankalilla, SA, 5203

When you are on Main South Road heading south (we in SA are just so imaginative with our road naming ability) Just Penny’s is just around the corner as you veer right in Yankalilla. If, after travelling roughly an hour since your last good coffee, reach Yankalilla and think “hmmm, I could go a coffee about now” just drive on past Just Penny’s and go to Normanville.  Other than than customer service – which is often a complaint of mine, but here was pretty good, my experience of the coffee was just bad, bad, bad.

Latte Quality – Bad – was way to hot – milk was scolded (as was my tongue) and, if I hadn’t watched her make it I would have thought it was instant.

Cost – $3.50 – which is about average.

Coffee Supplier – there was nothing to indicate, which should have been my first tip.

Fair Trade – probably not.

Venue Suitable for:

  • Quiet Chat, Deep and Meaningful, Study and Reflection – Yes – we dropped in on a Wednesday afternoon and there was only one other person there.  The furniture in the cafe is locally made from polished rough cut timber, which is very nice – but with a 2.5 year old we here hesitant to hang around just incase we had to then purchase an item of furniture.  The guy ahead of us purchased food and he seemed pleased enough, but perhaps bring your own thermos….

    The food is very nice love the hot dogs and the yiros to die for, a great relaxing atmosphere, my family eat here often and love the place, drop in and you will not be disappointed.

    • Awful service, got our order wrong (ps. next time write the order down for starters instead of using your memory). Then told the next customers after us that she was grumpy because apparently she got the orders wrong. She the stuffed up our friends order also (ps again write the order down on a piece of paper girl!!!!!) Lucky your self employed Penny otherwise you wouldn’t have a job long. Won’t be going back and will be telling all our friends to avoid the place like the plague!!!!
