Larry and Ladd Cafe

Something for the Ladds and Laddettes here
Larry and Ladd has livened up the Regent Arcade coffee scene.

Regent Arcade has become all shiny and almost full again with the efforts of Renew Adelaide filling up the empty spots of yore. This process has been going on for quite a while now. One of the brightest additions to the arcade was Larry and Ladd.

The slick looking cafe boasts a beautiful Synesso on the counter, and friendly service no matter who's behind it. Beans are supplied by 5 Senses and there are rotating single origins and filter coffees available.

Black concrete bench-tops and lovely lighting give the space an inviting, intimate feel but depending on the mood of the staff at the time you could be treated to classic house music or some good ol' Hip Hop/RnB classics pumping through the speakers.

Sometimes rows of magazines are displayed on the walls, sometimes great artwork by up-and-coming artists. Sometime there's quite a range of vinyl to flick through and purchase too - although I never know quite what I'm looking at - a bit of specialised knowledge is probably required to be able to recognise the best things that they have available.

Pastries are often supplied by Abotts and Kinney (Almost Croissant. Do it.)

If the pastries don't tempt, and you're after something savoury for food at Larry they usually have soup (in the wintertime) and toasties to choose from. They also have little Spanish-style bocadillos. I've had the pleasure of eating the Truffled Mushroom toasted sandwich which was really tasty - oozing cheese and with a nice peppery finish - and toasted to perfection. Another one to give a go is their current special toastie - it oozes mozarella and cacciatore sauce like a pizza inside a toastie - delicious.

The wait on the toasties is sometimes a little longer than you'd expect - but when they come out they are crispy on the outside and completely heated through. Sometimes I think other places could use a bit more heating to ensure an even temperature for all fillings but that isn't the case here. Still, if you're in a really big rush maybe a coffee and bocadillo to go would be a safer option.
