Wake me up for brunch
If the smell of bacon and freshly ground coffee gets your mouth watering or if you are more of a burger and soft drink type of person, from the North, to South, East, West and Adelaide City
Here are five cafes great for brunch.

North- Cafe Sia

Located alongside popular stores in the Gawler Green shopping village this popular family-friendly cafe offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.

Their morning glory breakfast menu is available between 8.00am to 11.30am. The menu offers different varieties of bacon and eggs breakfast dishes, veggie breakfast, pancakes, and homemade granola.

Lunch starts at 11.30 and it will be helpful if you know what you feel like or you could be staring at this menu for a while. The main menu is large and includes eleven amazing options on a special gluten-free section. They have a $12.90 lunch menu and its hard to go past that with so many delicious options.

On my visit, I ordered the chicken burger, that comes with chicken schnitzel, lettuce, tomato, mozzarella cheese, barbecue sauce, aioli and chips. My friend who I dined with enjoyed the crumbed fish, with fresh salad and crunchy chips.

West- The Perfect Cup

The Perfect Cup is a large cosy cafe perfect for brunch. Located in West Lakes on Frederick Road, it is part of a chain of four cafes.

My sister and I work around the area and wanted to find somewhere with good coffee, an affordable menu and great food to enjoy before work when we both start at the same time. We came across the perfect cup when researching online and after a quick look at the menu, we both decided this was a cafe we needed to try.

When arriving we were delighted that it was open and airy with cosy miss-matched furniture, cushions and decor. We ordered coffees and our breakfast. I ordered the Bacon and eggs with toasted ciabatta. My sister ordered Big breakfast with bacon, eggs, chilli kransky, mushroom, hash brown and smashed avocado served with ciabatta.

Overall this is one of my favourite brunch cafes, Breakfast and lunch all day, friendly staff and easy to access. This will be somewhere I would go again.

Adelaide City- My Kingdom For A Horse

A breakfast and lunch treasure, located on Wright Street in Adelaide, was my choice for a breakfast with my cousin and we were both overly impressed.

I had heard of this place from the social hype on websites for the best breakfast, brunch, cafe, and best coffee; I finally got around to trying this cafe out.

My Kingdom for a Horse is a licensed cafe with on-site coffee roaster. This cafe offers a seasonal, all-day a la carte menu using the very best, locally sourced and ethically produced ingredients.

Walking in, I was surrounded by bright, positive, vibrant furniture, natural sunlight and greenery. I said to my cousin while we were eating, if I am ever feeling down, I should visit here, a coffee, and a sweet will do the trick.

Being a bit away from the hustle and bustle of the middle of the city, parking was simple to find, free and convenient.

It was around lunchtime when we got to the cafe but we both opted for breakfast options. I treated myself to the decadent Golden Gaytime waffles, vanilla and toffee waffles, with vanilla bean ice-cream, honeycomb biscuit crumbs and chocolate sauce. It was a sugar explosion but absolutely delicious. I enjoyed my waffles with a latte and it was one of the best I have had.

My cousin went for the typical breakfast, with toast, eggs and bacon. There were many options to choose from to make your perfect breakfast, including mushrooms, feta, roast tomato, spinach, smoked ocean trout, baked beans and avocado. They also have gluten-free bread, which is a bonus.

The menu had a great variety and many menu options stood out to me. The menu pricing was reasonable with items ranging from $8.50- $25.50. I Will be back to try more options and enjoy the lively cafe once again.

Open 7am - 4pm Monday to Friday 8am - 4pm on weekends and public holidays
191 Wright Street, Adelaide, SA, 5000
