Charming rustic cafe food that makes you happy
Winter in Adelaide is especially cold when compared with Sydney. Whenever I feel the cold, I crave for food - the warm, comfort hearty type of food. So I ducked into the Adelaide Central Market for some meal inspiration.
Lunch time delights - Special Pumpkin & Egg Quiche $12.90
While exploring the Market, I came across a great little cafe called Zedz Cafe by accident. It was close to lunch time and when I walked pass these scrumptious looking rustic savory tarts, I could not resist but to stop in my track.
Rainy & Cold - Taste Winter at the Adelaide Central Market
This tiny cafe has a 'rabbit burrow' feel which makes it particularly warm and inviting on a rainy lunchtime. Everything on the menu board sounds tantalizing and delicious.The menu here is varied and has something for everyone.
Zedz Cafe specialises in homemade European-style foods, traditional Greek salads, hearty freshly-made Italian meals and artisan European desserts. Everything is made on site daily and their freshly made sandwich platters and fresh fruit juices are well-known among the locals. There is also a daily specials board to peruse as well as the full menu.
The cafe was already bustling with office workers and students, so I joined the queue and examined the menu with keen interest. As I moved towards the counter, I discovered the real talking point of this cafe.
The serving bench was filled with freshly baked savory and sweet delights. They were all generously topped with wholesome ingredients and they looked delicious. The waitstaff were friendly and obviously proud of their baked goods on offer.
I was feeling excited when my Mushroom & Haloumi Tart ($12.90) arrived. The tart was baked to perfection with flaky pastry, generous meaty field mushrooms and flavorsome haloumi cheese. The tart was well-seasoned and delivered a great flavour.
I also ordered a Mixed Salad ($10.90) on the side. The Potato and Celery salad tasted creamy with egg mayonnaise and seeded mustard, the Cous Cous Salad was generously topped with fetta and pepitas to add texture, and the Roasted Pumpkin salad was my favourite. All three salads were delicious and matched well with the mushroom tart.
I felt relaxed, welcomed and delighted with the food and beverages on offer.
Zedz Cafe's atmosphere is welcoming, warm and a peaceful retreat from the busy bustling market. The simplistic decor of the cafe makes patrons focus on the quality of food. So stop by and enjoy a little Zedz hospitality when you're in the Adelaide Central Market.
