Nothing is better than a coffee date with your friend to enjoy a latte, brunch, and a chat in a cafe with spectacular food and atmosphere. Adelaide is thriving with cafes and coffee shops and I am on the hunt to find all the best. Here are 4 standout cafes to try for amazing food, coffee and service.
You can tell a cafe is going to be good when you have to wait to get a seat. This hidden gem is located in the back streets of Thebarton and serves hearty food, coffee and sweet treats.
This cafe offers vintage style indoor seating and a dog-friendly shaded outdoor seating which is surrounded by green succulents.
Everything I was served was exceptional from the delicious coffee, to the food, to the free fruit they offer at the counter. The menu runs all day and includes a must have French toast and a wholesome burger.
Mister Sunshine's is open seven days a week 7.30AM-3.30 PM for breakfast and lunch.
I heard this place had amazing coffee, so I had to try it out and they weren't wrong. This cafe is small but jam-packed with amazing creative decor and greenery.
The owners are dedicated with a passion for coffee and interior design. The decorating is very cool with lots of hip hop decor filling the walls and tables.
The menu has a great selection of affordable meals ranging from $8-$23 including seasonal fruit with yoghurt, honey and chia seeds, in-house granola, French toast, breakfast baked bowl, hotcakes, corn fritters, smoothie bowls, sandwiches, fried chicken, and some delicious sweet treats.
Located a short walk from the beach this fabulous cafe offers breakfast, brunch, lunch, cocktails and you can't leave without trying one of their amazing coffees.
This cafe brings lots of different vibes with their decor. It is open and airy but warm and inviting at the same time with black chalkboard walls, wallpaper, wooden tables and modern lighting. It is very different to the usual beachside cafe.
Prices for meals vary from $9 for small snacks to $47 for platters for two.
Open Mon-Wed 7am-4pm, Thurs 7am-10pm, Friday 7am-late, Sat 8am-late, Sunday 8am-10pm
Located 20 minutes from Adelaide, is the relaxing and beautiful Watershed Cafe. The cafe is nestled among the Greenfields wetlands and has beautiful views of the wetland from the café, especially from the decked outdoor sitting area.
This cafe offers a fantastic range of meals for breakfast and lunch. For breakfast you can get a freshly squeezed juice or coffee. Some of their options for breakfast include Fruit Loaf, Belgian Chocolate Croissant, Spanish Omelette, Eggs Benedict, French Toast, Classic Eggs on Toast, and Big Breakfasts.
For lunch, some options include Garlic bread, Soup of the Day, Watershed Grazing Plate, Seafood Grazing Plate, Chicken Salad, Pork Belly, Salt and Pepper Squid, Fish and Chips, Rib Eye Steak, Steak Sandwich or Spaghetti Marinara. You can enjoy your lunch with a glass of wine from the wide selection and finish off with a dessert.
Wish you reviewers would also consider how comfortable cafes are for their customers. My friends and I can't understand the mania for little tin stools. Why are people accepting these horribly uncomfortable seats on which it is very difficult to eat and chat in a relaxed manner. Cream has terrible seating and the unbelievable racket means shouting to your friends. Pure has great food and ridiculous slanted back seats which make eating a meal comfortably out of the question. I've still to check out your other 2. Praying for higher standards. The best cafes in SA seem to be in country towns where the locals won't put up with ridiculous hipster fit-outs that offer no comfort to the paying customers!
