Where is the Best Breakfast in Adelaide?

Writer's Answer:
Published August 30th 2011
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it can also be the most enjoyable. Adelaide has got some great places that serve up tasty meals in the early hours of the day. It is a great time to meet up with friends, because you can catch up and still have the day ahead of you, and it is a meal of delicious food. So out of all of Adelaide's breakfast spots, where is the best place to grab a meal?



A Cafe Etc in Brighton, is somewhere you can get breakfast while surrounded by the smiling face of Marylin Monroe. You can find all of your usual breakfast fare, as well as some very tasty fruit smoothies. If you're enjoying breakfast here, make sure you walk down to enjoy the bookshops along Jetty Road, or take a relaxing walk along the beachfront.

Just up from the beachfront in Glenelg you can enjoy breakfast at Zest Cafe. They join your usual breakfast favourites with imaginative choices, like 'Hell's Eggs' or 'The Hottie', spicy breakfast options that will fire you up early in the morning. Zest have fresh juices, good coffee, and fantastic service. It may not be your cheapest breakfast option, but is could easily be one of the best.



Staying at the same end of the alphabet, Zed'z Cafe is another great place to grab some breakfast. They have fresh breakfast options, that last all day. The big breakfast will set you back $28, but most of the other options are reasonably priced. The highlight of breakfast at Zed'z would have to be their freshly squeezed juices, make sure you check their specials board to find out their current inspired option.

Along Goodwood Road, Brown Dog Cafe will serve up a delicious breakfast with perfectly cooked eggs. Although eggs aren't the only tasty thing on the Brown Dog Menu. Their porridge is the perfect option for winter, with stewed vegetables and a pot of honey. Unfortunately their drink menu doesn't quite match the standard of their food menu, but their outside courtyard is a lovely place to enjoy the first meal of the day.



So if you've encountered the perfect poached eggs, or a breakfast smoothie that is to die for, tell us about it. Where can we find Adelaide's best breakfast?

Swedish Tarts at Semaphore! The servings are big, reasonably priced and delish. The savoury crepes and flat breads are recommended for something different!

my vote goes to Rigonis, always excellently cooked food, great service, good coffee and linen table clothes etc give a sense of occaision even for breakfast, make it special with a bottle of bubbly from a good wine list or even their own chilli vodka

I would have to say Nano's(behind BBC) in the city. The food is delish and the staff are warm and friendly plus there is lots of people watching to be had.

I'd certainly say the Loose Caboose at Bowden Station gets an honourable mention. While a newcomer it is, and far too expensive, words cannot fathom the deliciousness. Try any coffee with the smashed avocado and mushrooms. The sausages are also to die for (your arteries may just do that)!

The Mediterranean Cafe, corner of Broadway and Partridge Streets, Glenelg. It's spacious, with an option to dine outside, has on-site parking, friendly and prompt service, serving good food!!! Try the Home Special bacon & egg baguette, if you are really hungry.... reasonably priced and delicious. And they do the eggs the way you want it, poached, runny, sunny side up...this is very important to a lot of us, not so? Our group of ladies have made this our Breakfast Spot and I highly recommend it for a no-fuss place to enjoy brekkie, coffee and a chat. And then walk off the calories along the beach or take a stroll down Jetty Road. All good!

Java Hut in Gawler. A big breakfast for $10.00. The coffee is piping hot and the wait is not long even when they are busy. It pays to book on weekends as they are always busy.

The smashed avocado, with housemade dukkah, feta and coriander on Mylor sourdough at Harvest Mylor (240 Strathalbyn Road mylor 83885205) is the bomb. Also try their house baked beans with a side of pork and fennel sausages. Or their waffles with banana and honeycomb. Damn, I'm hungry!!!!
