Team behind The Seller Door and The Local Canteen to open beachside kiosk in the South

The family behind The Sellar Door and The Local Canteen are preparing to open up a brand new beachside venue where Kingston Park meets Seacliff.

The family behind The Seller Door and The Local Canteen are preparing to open up a brand new beachside venue where Kingston Park meets Seacliff.

A City of Holdfast Bay project, the new kiosk will be constructed along the edge of the coastal path within the Brighton Beachfront Holiday Park. It’s been a long time coming for Seacliff and Kingston Park resident, who have been driving the project through council for a number of years, and it’s about to pay off.

The modern structure, facing Brighton jetty, boasts stunning beach views, making it one of the most enviable locations in Adelaide. Two sites within the caravan park will be removed to accommodate the new building and allow for a proper integration of the kiosk into the caravan park itself.

When the Council put out a tender on the development, owner Tom Rodger jumped at the chance. And now, backed by the successful ventures of The Local Canteen and The Seller Door, they’re crafting an offering perfectly suited to the location.

“The location is amazing. It’s literally five steps to the sand. These kind of opportunities don’t come up very often so we’re really excited about that.”

The kiosk, set to open in late 2023, will combine the knowledge and experience of Tom’s other two businesses, with a new, quintessentially Aussie beachside twist.

“We’re going to focus on serving specialty coffee, quality food sourced from local suppliers and producers, and a selection of local wines. However, given the beachside location, we’re going to be including a lot of your classic beach kiosk offerings.” Tom said.

Adding a personal touch, Tom, and his brother and business partner Ben, come from a winemaking family in McLaren Vale, and they aim to utilise this connection to bring high quality, local vino to the bay.

The initial phase of construction is already underway, with temporary fencing and a site compound established. As a result, the car park adjacent to the holiday park has been reduced in size. However, the existing DDA parking space on the southern side of the car park remains accessible and will continue to be available throughout the construction phase.

During this transition period, the current temporary kiosk will continue operations until the end of the month. The goal is to have the new kiosk fully operational by the end of the year, offering an upgraded and improved experience for visitors.

With its breathtaking views and a focus on delivering quality food and beverages, the upcoming kiosk promises to be a must-visit destination for locals and tourists alike.

You’ll be able to find the new kiosk at 4 Burnham Rd, Kingston Park.
