Food and words.
Published August 17th 2011
Cafe Foreyou is a cosy cafe near the Port Adelaide boardwalk. You can sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee and a meal, or grab some takeaway to enjoy in historic Port Adelaide. The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch, and has a good assortment of meals to keep you satisfied.

The food on offer at Cafe Foreyou is pretty much your standard cafe fare. There is a large choice of sandwiches, maps, wraps, and turkish bread, that all cost about $8. What sets Cafe Foreyou apart from some other cafes is that their bread is all fresh, and their food is full of fresh flavour. Rather than sticking to simple BLT sandwiches they have a slightly more gourmet menu, without being too outlandish. There is a children's menu that features things like chicken nuggets, and there are some other heartier food options. If you're there earlier in the day then you can check out their breakfast menu, which includes their 'Big Brekki' for just $15.50. Indulge in some lollies or cakes if you've got a bit of a sweet tooth, or take advantage of the licensed bar and have a glass of beer or wine with your food.

Being so close to the Port River, Cafe Foreyou is nearby some lovely outdoor spots to sit and have some lunch. There is a fish and chips menu, which is well suited to the location, and you can take this away to enjoy on the river front. A cone of chips starts from about $4.50, so this can be a cheap way to enjoy some food on the river front. The cafe also has a freezer with all of your typical ice creams for those hot days.

Cafe Foreyou also boasts a gallery where you can see work from local artists displayed on the walls. These pieces are available for sale, so you could pick up a new painting or picture to take home, or just enjoy the works while you eat your lunch. If you prefer to eat outside there are outdoor tables each shaded under an umbrella. When the weather is right this can be a lovely spot to sit.

The cafe is very child friendly, with a kids menu and activities to keep restless kids entertained. There is a toy box in the corner filled with things for children to play with, or if they're the artistic sort they can create their own crayon drawings on the butcher paper table cloths. If you've got young ones you can even get a high chair for them to sit in. The child friendly nature of the cafe is great, because it means you can head across to the cafe after visiting the nearby Maritime Museum and not have to worry about bringing the kids along.

Cafe Foreyou is a good all round cafe, with plenty of different menu options to serve everyone. There are some interesting quirks that make it a unique place to visit, and it is one of the few cafes of its type in historic sector of Port Adelaide. You'll find them open every day of the week from about 9am till 4pm.
