The Town of Berry - & their famous Donut Van

Queen Street, Berry
About 2 hrs drive out of Sydney


The first time i went to Berry was maybe about 4 years ago - on a day trip to Kiama with my family. Berry is about a 20min to half an hour further from Kiama, but its so worth the drive to come here for these awesome donuts.

This trip to Berry would be my third in 4 years - 2nd & third time dragging Richard with me for the long drive to get my donut fiX!

The van also sells hot drinks, cold shakes, and on this visit new additions hot dogs, hot chips, and few other hot food items but one thing everyone always orders is their freshly made donuts. YES you heard me, FRESH and is - made only when they are ordered :)

just an average food stand in a van
on the side of the road... nOT!


yummy in my tummy - fresh hot donuts



When you grab your paperbag of donuts you can feel the incredible heat from then as they have just come out of the fryer and popped into the bag, burnage is possible so i know not to just take a huge bite but to sort of break a piece off carefully with my fingers and blow on it to cool it down before *CHOMPING* it down like a mad donut monster hehe.

"munch munch*


the simplest form of donuts
coated in sugar & cinnamon

Being the greedy chicka that i am - i buy 6 for $5 and save two for us for later in the day as they are just as nice cooled down and slightly soggy from being bashed around in my bag haha :O)

Cappuccino's

We also ordered some hot beverages to go with the hot donuts (even though it was a pretty hot day i didn't mind it at all) but our cappuchinos were watery and way too hot to drink. Even when it cooled down i couldn't finish it :(



The town of Berry lies on the one street called Queen street, so when you enter Queen street that is the only place you need to be. Parking anywhere along that road (and im sure there are a few small side streets but i've never had a problem finding parking. The Donut Van you will find on the right side furthest from you, you can't miss it!

So while i've been here three times now i've never actually explored the place.. so we went for a walk and found a few interesting shops.. :)

what a spinnout..wooah


Now this was really random a street pole with atleast 30 places ?! Various places in Oz i guess but still cool.


This bottle shop/motel just beside the Donut Van is covered in HUB CAPS! Small large medium any size you can find i think it looks pretty cool.


On Queen Street you can also find clothing stores, a butcher, a few cafes, a pub and other shops that i didnt think were too interesting to go into until Richard pulled me into this liquor store called "berry bottle shop"..



This wasnt just any old liquor store .. as you can see in my pictures below- almost every bottle of wine had a note attached to it - with a description of the drink! This guy has tasted almost every drink in his store! Haha, what an alco.. kiddin! hehe.






So obviously you would trust this dude and his stock as he would only stock the wines he thinks is worth selling so we asked him for some recommendations & left with two bottles (one sweet muscato for me and one red for Richard).

anything rainbow will attract my attention


"better than sex . . . and cheaper!"



We spent a good ten or fifteen minutes in this shop (only cos Richard is a winohead hehe).

Another shop that caught my eye was this clock shop called "cuckoo corner".

tick tock tick tick tock



The shop is just full of clocks, and even the huge standing vintage clocks they had a few (but had a ridiculous price tag on them i felt poor just looking at them so i didn't take any photo's)




I asked the lady behind the counter if i could take some pictures and she kindly (and shyly) said yes as if she thought



I've also been told there is a famous PIE shop in berry which i might have a look for the next time i'm visiting (probably later this year!)

Love the post Betty! Donut van, cuckoo clocks, ridiculous street sign, hub caps; what more can you ask for? ;-)

I love Berry though I haven't been there for years. Your photos are so good, especially of the cuckoo clocks and that weird bottleshop. I thought there were lots of antiquey gift shops there too, or aren't you into that sort of thing? ;)

Cute little town Betty! :) So what makes the donuts so good? Is it the super freshness? :D

foodwink said...

Love a good road trip from Sydney! I've only been to Kiama, but those donuts certainly provide a good reason to visit Berry.

Or maybe that van should come up to Sydney? :P

Next time you're in Berry, there's a little candy shop on one of the side streets. They have a huge variety of candy, including a triple chocolate hard rock candy, all on charming wooden shelves!

Mmmmm... donuts... There used to be the best donut shop near my place. I remember spending my childhood having a donut a few times a week after school. It was a home-run business and they dished out the best donuts! But recently they had to close (due to the owners retiring) and it was replaced with Donut King (boo). That was a sad day indeed.. Those donut photos reminded me so much of the childhood I had.. And they were heaps cheap too; $4 for a DOZEN cinnamon-sugar coated donuts!

Sorry for the life story.. LOL
