I'm an Adelaide comms professional and I love to share my dining experiences. Although I'm a vego my husband isn't so my reviews often include his meaty meals.

Ginger's Coffee Studio is owned by the same crew as The Pantry on Egmont, so before we even arrived we were expecting good food and coffee and retro, eclectic décor.
The patterned lime green wallpaper delivered on the kitsch setting and a line up out the door hinted the fare wouldn't disappoint.
The wait staff were very friendly and attentive despite being run off their feet, and before we knew it we were seated and enjoying creamy lattes, made with Tweedvale milk and fresh, seasonal, single origin coffee beans.
Our freshly squeezed Pink Floyd was a refreshing combination of pear, watermelon and mint and sat amongst a list of other tempting juices.
My gluten free muesli came with a warm and very sweet berry compote and a small side of delicious, thick yoghurt (and honey which I didn't end up needing), plus a side of milk (I opted for Bonsoy, their soy milk of choice).
It was a decent serving, without being mountainous like some serves of muesli can be, and left me feeling happily sated.
My husband's Big Breakfast was homely in its presentation, and included generous portions of mushrooms, slow roasted tomatoes, baked beans, chorizo, bacon, sourdough toast and light, fluffy, well-set scrambled eggs laced with chives. His eyes were bigger than his belly but he enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the charred, salty bacon.
