Arbour Kitchen is its name. It is located on Wright Street at the bottom of the Boheme Apartments. Opened in June, the newly opened cafe focuses on showcasing South Australian produce and has been very clever, knowing exactly what the menu, drinks and service need to be like to attract a brunch junkie, like myself. I have already seen this cafe on numerous websites with fantastic reviews and knew I had to try it out for myself.
When my friend and I were deciding to go for our breakfast, it did not take much convincing after he looked up the menu and pictures of this new cafe. On their website, they state that 'The 95-seat restaurant will serve high-class food without the price tag' and when looking at the menu online, we both knew it was somewhere we would enjoy and we had to try it out.
We arrived around eleven on a Thursday morning for a late breakfast. We were pleased to know that breakfast is served till 11.30 and did not miss out. We both loved the relaxing, fresh decor. Natural sunlight flooded the room from the floor to ceiling glass doors, that can open up to let fresh air and a distraction-free view over the parklands. Stone tiles, light cane furniture, light wood and salmon hues with greenery were the perfect combination for this area. I sat down on the padded booth seating, on a table against the wall, set with a beautiful pink placemat, which ended up being the menu (very clever), water glasses and cutlery.
The breakfast menu has an extensive range, with prices ranging between $7.00-$26.00. They have a special section dedicated to plant-based options and had vegan options also. Even though the poached pear with gingerbread, coffee cream and walnut crumble sounded amazing, I decided against the sugar-packed meal and ordered the Clare Valley eggs on toast add bacon. My friend ordered the buckwheat pancakes.

Our meals arrived beautifully presented the eggs on toast with bacon came with a small leafy salad and homemade butter that was delicious. The buckwheat pancakes with citrus mascarpone, seasonal fruit and dehydrated chocolate were the perfect combination and not too sweet. Both meals were amazing and our bean revolution coffees were equally as good.

Arbour Kitchen is South Australian only. With all menu items, as well as their sodas, being S.A produced. They use Bickfords range of sodas and if you are up for a cold drink, they had a great range of freshly made juices.
The lunch menu has some even better items than the breakfast menu with some items being South Australian seafood, Coffin Bay Oysters, Hay Valley lamb breast and Coorong Angus striploin.
Arbour Kitchen was a 10/10 experience. Just that they support South Australia through and through is a good enough reason to try this cafe out, as well as with friendly service, quick delivery of drinks and meals, and delicious food it is the ideal spot for breakfast and lunch.
