Where It All Began
February 2020 marks the seventh birthday of our family owned Barossa Valley based licensed café – Red Door espresso.
As the Head Chef and owner, along with my partner Jason Moulds, daughter Penelope DeRuiter and tight knit local team, we hope we have created a welcoming café for locals and visitors to relax and enjoy quality, seasonal food, music, and gourmet beverages.
Red Door espresso is proud to able to cater for:
- Mums, dads and grandparents, who can relax inside or out with their kids or meet in groups to catch up for coffee in a truly child friendly café.
- Wheelchair access via a ramp to the front door and relaxing courtyard.
- Tourists from across the globe who visit this world-famous wine region.
- Business owners who hold meetings over a lunch or platters.
- Celebrities who pop in on occasion!
- Dogs – four legged friends are welcome in the garden courtyard or on the front verandah.
We look forward to welcoming you to Red Door espresso real soon.

What We Are About
Red Door espresso is devoted to using local, traceable and sustainable produce as it shines the spotlight on delicious local Barossa Valley ingredients and continues our fierce commitment to providing sumptuous food that is baked, made or grown with our own hands.
Not only does employing local ensure a low carbon footprint on travel, but as sticklers for training, we ensure each of our team learn the hospitality craft and the beauty of the Barossa to carry with them well into their future careers.
Our food packaging including straws, napkins, takeaway coffee cups, takeaway milkshake cups, takeaway cake containers and much more is sustainable. Biopak is rapidly renewable, sustainably sourced with plant based materials.
We recycle our newspapers, milk bottles, soft drink, wine and beer bottles. Our milk lids get donated to Helping Hands where they transform the bottle lids into prosthetic hands, 3D filament and other usable items
Water Saving Toilets
We use eco friendly toilet paper and our toilets are water saving toilets, so don’t be alarmed as the hand basin water turns itself off automatically.
Seaonal & Local Produce
Our menu changes seasonally, so that we are able to source fresh ingredients currently in season. A large proportion of these ingredients are locally sourced enabling us to support our growers / community and showcase the regional produce.
