Kids are at their happiest (and quietest) when they’re eating and there’s plenty in the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast Pantry.

The region is known for its selection of bakeries where a pasty or sausage roll goes a long way to hitting the spot. Then of course there’s dessert – who can resist a doughnut, with chocolate or sprinkles of course, or an award winning vanilla slice (you will find a few across the region) or a magnificent cream bun with jam and whipped cream. You may have just licked your lips!

  • Clarendon Bakery
