Dunks & Unley Coffee Bar are a fairly new face on the Unley Road cafe scene, but they're doing a good job at standing out from the crowd. Their unique set up means that while you're enjoying your coffee and food, you'll feel right at home. They're open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, or just for coffee and chats anytime throughout the day.
Walking inside Dunks & Unley, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd stepped into a furniture shop. There are antique and vintage tables set up with mismatched chairs, as well as sofas and coffee tables, nothing matches and that is part of the charm. You could have easily walked into an antique store, or even someone's jumbled home. Large groups can take up whole groups, or couples can find a cosy spot in the corner. You even can buy some of the furniture, Dunks operates as a shop as well as a cafe, and there is furniture and gifts for sale.
Breakfast at Dunks includes some very eggy options. These include their Big Brekky with the Lot which includes free range eggs, grilled Barossa Valley bacon, smoked sausage, sautÚd Swiss mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, and toasted Ciabatta bread, or their Eggs Benedict with Smoked Atlantic Salmon. You can also pick from crepes, fruit bread, banana bread, muesli, croissants, or fruit salad.
At lunch time there are a range of sandwiches, rolls, and wraps for you to enjoy. As well as some sweet cakes or tarts if you're feeling a little indulgent. For a larger meal try some of their Chefs Choice meals, or check the specials board. The Chefs Choice menu includes gourmet hot dogs, as well as some Polish cuisine. You could try the croquettes, savoury meat mince and sauerkraut in pancake style pastry, grilled and served with Polish beetroot drinking soup, or the Polish Pierogi.
There are a range of ice teas and soft drinks available at Dunks, as well as coffees and teas. On a nice day you can sit out the front in their open air courtyard, but inside amongst the vintage furniture is just as nice. There are large open windows, and high ceilings, so even eating indoors feels light and airy.
Dunks & Unley is well worth a visit, not just to try the food, but also to take in the charming atmosphere of this small cafe. You'll find attention to detail in all aspects of Dunks and Unley, and there will be lots of little things to surprise and delight you.
