Hello, Yes Cafe

I am a student/writer always looking for a new place to try.

Industrial Coffee in the Heart of the CBD

Hello, Yes is a new addition to the back streets of Adelaide's CBD. Just off Franklin Street, it is a hidden treasure perfect for a different pre-work coffee. The space is really the key feature to this new place - it is in an open warehouse building with high ceilings, cobwebs, and old bicycles.

An Empire Records poster hangs on the wall surrounded by graffiti and street art, which give the place a unique feel when compared to the usual cafes around Adelaide. The menu is very vegetarian and vegan friendly and boasts the modern staple sliders (although sweet potato in this case). There is also a Gwenyth Paltrow house blend muesli and an avocado egg cup with spiced dukkah, which is what we had.

The food is good, as is the coffee, but where Hello, Yes is really lacking is in their service. While the two owners were enthusiastic and very pleasant there was simply too long a wait on coffees, order taking and food. If this were a bustling cafe it would be understandable but there were seven people there including us and it took noticeably too long to get our orders.

Despite this Hello, Yes is a great spot and I think is much needed in Adelaide at the moment. Its industrial feel and live music potential outweigh the places it needs improvement. While they are still getting on their feet I would recommend this place not for a quick in-and-out breakfast but for a morning meeting or lunch spot. There are a lot of tables in which you can spread out and take your time to have a chat and enjoy a brie toastie.
