Deep Blue Cafe

Published May 9th 2012

Do you live in or visit Adelaide?

I'm going to assume yes, considering you're on a 'Things to Do in Adelaide' website.

Have you been to the Deep Blue Café at Moana Beach?

If you said yes to the first question but no to the latter, I'm again going to make an assumption that you either hate food or live under a rather small but nice boulder.

The Deep Blue Café has to be one of Adelaide's most understated food gems.

The café building itself has been around for decades, serving milkshakes and hot chips to beach goers since the early 1970s.

Thankfully since then the kitchen has had a makeover. These days their simple but delicious breakfast menu has city dwellers flocking south each weekend to choose between French Toast served in the Canadian style with fresh fruit, bacon and maple syrup or the fluffy buttermilk pancakes with fresh berries and double cream or eggs Florentine - free range poached eggs cooked to perfection with a delicious smooth hollandaise sauce dripping over cooked spinach and thick crusty toast.

Then there is the Deep Blue Big Brekkie, commonly ordered by those wearing dark glasses and sipping extra strong coffees.

The cafe maintains a laid back atmosphere, no doubt a combination of the beach side location, the quirky memorabilia hanging throughout the heated outdoor dining area and of course the customers themselves - from children in their swimmers to couples having a lazy late breakfast in their trackies.

Staying true to the original 'Moana Kiosk' of old, take away hot chips drizzled in vinegar are still available but if you truly want to experience the best Deep Blue has to offer, make a Sunday morning booking for a table by the fireplace and loosen those belt buckles.
