With two locations across the city, the Adelaide Central Plaza and Central Market, T bar manages to stand out from the crowd with distinct décor and brightly coloured signage that guides patrons to its doors.

Naturally, with the name T bar, many patrons would expect a large range of teas. These people will not be disappointed, with selections such as chai, green, white, oolong and black tea blends available. Also, while at T bar you can pick up a variety of teapots and other tea-related products.

T bar also offers an extensive range of teas, coffees, breakfast and lunch options and sweet treats for diners. Therefore, T bar is not solely for tea lovers, having great choices for coffee aficionados. Their latte (pictured below with a chocolate-chip muffin), features a rich flavour that, while creamy in texture, includes a mildly bitter taste so many coffee drinkers enjoy. For this reviewer, it did not need any sweetening. Another must try is their version of a mocha, the coffee for lovers of chocolate.

On the topic of sweet, the muffin was an excellent choice, with a light, fluffy texture that melts in your mouth. Also, the staff give you the option of having the muffin warmed, which is not only great for the cold winter weather, but it makes the dessert nicer with the chocolate-chips becoming slightly melted.

Coffees and sweets aside, T bar also has a range of foods for breakfast and lunch that will satisfy any morning or mid afternoon hunger pangs. Pictured above is their Turkish bread with a host of flavoursome ingredients. The above dish features crisp and crunchy bread, tender pieces of roast chicken, a generous spread of avocado and mushrooms, exemplifying the type of foods at T bar. Keep in mind, this is just one of the Turkish breads, rolls and other options available.

The final word, T bar is a great inner-city tea and coffee spot (in either of their locations) for anyone wanting to indulge in a meal, snack or beverage with top tier ingredients that are sure to satisfy.
