Shaa-Koo-Tuh-Ree, Victor Harbor

Family Friendly Eats, Regional Eats | 0 comments

There’s no better feeling than strolling around town and stumbling across a hidden gem. Most often it happens when you least expect it, but almost always when you need it and when you have kids, this just happens to be all the time. Caffeine is life, truly.

This quaint tucked-away coffee shop in the heart of Victor Harbor on the Fleurieu Peninsula is a charming little eatery not to be missed. You’ll find it on Railway Terrace, right near Warland Reserve and just a short walk from the sensational GT Fisher Playground and the Cockle Train station so it makes a great lunch pit stop if you’re in town for either of those two

As the name suggests, and if you didn’t already know; a Charcuterie board (pronounced Shaa-Koo-Tuh-Ree) usually consists of a variety of meats, cheeses plus fruit or nuts which are beautifully presented, like those pictured below.  Considering this is the focal point of Shaa-Koo-Tuh-Ree we think not only is it very fitting but absolutely perfect and commend the owner, Chelsea on her creativity.

Shaa-Koo-Tuh-Ree specialises in sourcing fresh, local, and seasonal produce to help serve simple yet delicious food and bring a touch of the Fleurieu Peninsula to the plate. To give you an idea, all dairy they use is from Paris Creek, and let me just add, the cheeses are both creamy and flavoursome.

An alternative to the typical lunch or dinner menu, the concept here is brilliant and I honestly believe more foodie-type businesses should jump on board. Why it works? The menu offers a selection of finger food (perfect for breastfeeding mums who eat one-handed) and allows the customer to tick exactly what they’d like included on their grazing board, depending on the number of people they intend to feed. In turn, this caters to all dietary requirements, various sized appetites, allows the customer to eat their favourites or sample something new, and limits the amount of waste. It’s a no-brainer!

The kids’ snack boards are nutritious and boast a range of colourful, no-fuss favourites such as carrot sticks, cucumber, and berries. They can be served as Sunday brunch, Monday afternoon snack, Tuesday lunch, Wednesday night dinner. You get my drift, right? There’s also a takeaway option so if they don’t finish it or you need it on the go, they box it up all pretty like, and voilà, there’s the next meal sorted.

The cafe itself is welcoming with a relaxed and intimate vibe and although it’s rather small, the outdoor terrace is the ideal spot for a bite to eat and a good cup of coffee. Complete with a highchair and kids table, Shaa-Koo-Tuh-Ree is family-friendly, even providing the kids with chalk to create wonderful pieces of art on the ground. A nice touch!

Elaborate and eye-popping Shaa-Koo-Tuh-Ree boards may have been done before, but not like this. Also, I’ll let you in on a secret. A little birdie told me, a liquor license is coming soon. Imagine all of this, plus a glass of your favourite drop for the ultimate indulgence. Yes please!
