For a treat, head to Petaluma at the Bridgewater Mill, Mt. Barker Road, Bridgewater (tel. 08/8339 9200; www.bridgewatermill.com.au). In an impressive 1860s stone building that was the first water-powered flour mill to operate in South Australia, this place serves some of the best-regarded food in the country. It's also the cellar door for Petaluma Wines and where the company's sparkling wines are made. Mains are A$33 to A$38. It's open for lunch Thursday to Monday but you must book well in advance.

For a more casual lunch, try the Organic Market (tel. 08/8339 7131) in Stirling, where the cafe in front of the market store serves delicious light lunches, organic beer and wine, and good coffee. There's a great range of gluten and diary-free foods, and the antipasto plates with dolmades (stuffed grape leaves), goat's curd, eggplant, capsicum (pepper), olives, and gourmet bread make a perfect snack for two. It's at 5 Druids Ave., behind the State and National Banks, and is open daily 8:30am to 5pm. Mains are A$13.
