Joans Pantry

At Watahuna Avenue, Hawthorndene is Apex Park, which is a recreational reserve that follows a creek in the Adelaide Hills. The reserve includes a football oval a large children's playground and a number of walking tracks. It is a picuresque spot with plenty of big gum trees. In the middle of this natural beauty is Joans Pantry. This is a basic cottage which serves as kiosk and Café. There is seating inside and or outside. Merkel and Myrtle sat at one of the small wooden tables inside one morning for breakfast.

The hot chocolate came in a fancy stemmed glass with a handle. It was topped with a creamy, white froth and a liberal sprinkling of chocolate powder. A marshmallow was provided in the saucer. The drink was a rich, creamy, milk chocolate and was warming on a cold morning.
