cakes, sweet treats and amazing coffee. Diners can opt for the very funky interior or go alfresco in the outdoor area. Garnering kudos from all over the Eyre Peninsula and beyond (just ask SA’s Governor, the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC), and also offering alfresco eating, is the popular Wudinna Bakery. It features some of the best baked goods and vanilla slice you’ll find anywhere and is always perfect for that much-needed break. Of course, you could choose to do your own thing and head to one of the region’s many picnic areas. Along with some bakery goodies, pick up a range of scrummy picnic bits and pieces from the Wudinna Foodland or Minnipa Community Store, along with some incredible BBQ sausages, meats and smallgoods from the extraordinary Wudinna Meat Store. What a perfect way to get out and explore the region! See business listings on page 23.
