Recently opened, 30 Acres Restaurant in Norwood specialises in offering cafe-style food that features produce from the Adelaide Hills. It is known to get very busy, so it is advisable to book a table if you want to avoid waiting for a table.

The cafe's version of the Big Breakfast is notable for including a baked potato which had a fluffy texture set off nicely by the crisp skin. It was stuffed with a filling of baked beans and melted cheese. Also included in the dish were poached eggs with runny yolks, chorizo, Adelaide Hills bacon with a good amount of smoky flavour, and wilted greens for an element of freshness. Accompanying the dish was HP sauce to add a smoky taste to the ingredients. There was also toasted sourdough with butter that was great when eaten with the eggs.

Their French Toast used a kind of bread that was denser than normal bread. The rhubarb still retained a bit of bite and the candied citrus did not taste too sweet. A scoop of whipped cheesecake balanced out the sweetness and shards of meringue provided a bit of crunch.

In addition to their main menu, the cafe offers a range of pastries which is displayed at the entrance of the cafe. Their Carrot Cake was large enough to be shared, four tiers compared to the normal two tiers, and was moist. Walnuts were included for a bit of crunch and the cream cheese filling was not too creamy. Candied kumquat and ginger sandwiched between the layers of cake gave the cake its distinctive flavour. A topping of candied ginger added a bit of extra texture.

The decor of the cafe gave it a cosy and modern feel. A dinner menu is being planned so you can look forward to a greater variety of dishes in the near future.
