Adelaide eateries - pride of South Australia
It is time again for Crows fans to get the scarves and beanies ready, and make their way down to Adelaide Oval to watch their team in season 2015. This season provides a mixed bag of home games for the team with more opportunities for sunglasses than for night vision goggles. All that being said, all fans need a good feed before the big game, and the following is a list of personal favourites to guide the Crows fans through season 2015.
Kangaroos (5/4), Power (3/5), Geelong (5/7) - Sunday Twilight
The first game for the Crows is on Easter Sunday, which is one of three late Sunday or twilight games for the year. And what better to do on a Sunday than to have a high tea or to extend oneself with a special serve of desserts. For a quality high tea, why not try the Intercontinental or the Stamford Plaza, both of whom know how to spoil their guests. Or alternatively, perhaps drop in to Leigh Street and grab some waffles from Waffles Waffle and Coffee.
Melbourne (18/4), St Kilda (16/5), Suns (25/7) - Saturday afternoon
With three Saturday afternoon games this season, what could be better for Crows fans than a brunch on O'Connell Street or Melbourne Street. With numerous cafes to choose from, the choosing will be the most difficult part. My personal preferences for good service and good quality meals include Caffé Paesano, Café Fellini, Café Palazzo and Café Pelligrini.
Big time games on a Saturday night demand a big time menu and Gouger Street is on track to deliver something big. Whether is a big steak from Gauchos Argentinian, or a big late afternoon serving of Yum Cha from Ding Hao or Star House, there is something for everyone. And with the tram being close to Gouger Street and stopping near the Train Station, it is only a short walk after consuming the big meal before dropping in to Adelaide Oval.
Hawthorn come to town for one of the Crows biggest home games of the year on this Thursday night which is widely tipped to be a sellout. Best bet for a good meal on this Thursday night is Rundle Street and why not try one of the delicious burgers at Burger Theory or Fancy Burger, both of whom will fill the stomach in readiness for the biggest game of the year.

Richmond (7/8) - Friday night
The game against Richmond is the start of multi-cultural round, so the multicultural cafes in Melbourne Street look like the place to be. With servings from Latin America, South East Asia, Japan and Europe, there is a wide variety to choose from. For a good value meal I can recommend Montezumas, Zapatas, Sato Japanese and Yakitori Takumi.
The final home game of the year is a Sunday lunch game which provides great opportunities for a Sunday breakfast in the City. Despite many new places opening up on the Riverbank I struggle to go past the tapas style menu at Regattas Bistro. Other candidates for a good quality before-the-game breakfast include East Terrace Continental , Café Troppo and Bar 9 Central.
The Crows home and away season ends with an away game, but the team will be hoping for better fortunes in 2015 as they seek to make the finals for the first time under their new coach. With a well-fed and happy crowd, the vocal support from the 19th man is sure to be loud, and is sure to provide much assistance to help them achieve their goals of finals football.
