Belgian Beer Cafe Oostende

There’s nothing more trendier than the Belgian Beer Cafe. I’ve got friends that have met their soul mates here. This place is renowned for two things, beer and mussels. With an 8 page beer menu, a person can get easily distracted by the amount of choice on offer. On this particular occasion, I was here […]

Royal Copenhagen – Henley Beach

It’s no coincidence that all the Royal Copenhagen stores in Adelaide are located in beach side suburbs. There’s nothing like a cold refreshing ice cream on a hot Summer’s day. The Henley Beach store is somewhat better than the Glenelg store, mainly because you can sit down and eat your dessert. The menu items are […]

PJ O’Brien’s

I’ve had many a drink at PJ’s over the years, but I’ve never eaten here, until today. At one time, I used to be a regular, because a friend of mine regularly played in a band here. There’d be drinking and there’d be dancing, and on a few occasions I’d still be here at 5am […]

Steven Ter Horst Chocolatier – Rundle St

From humble beginnings at their Unley Road store, Steven Ter Horst has finally expanded and moved to a more central location. Now located on Rundle Street, the place is more stylish and sophisticated. The polished concrete flooring, the wall mounted shelving and the ceiling flushed lighting make this store very minimalist. The dark colour tones […]

Proof

Located in an alleyway on Anster Street, Proof is situated in a unassuming double storey building. The decor here is full of character and old world charm. The dim lighting, the golden reflective ceiling, the tie wearing chefs and the waistcoat wearing bartenders, really gave the feeling I was in a late 19th century English […]

Sir Cafe – Runde St – Adelaide

Sir Cafe is a cute little dessert and tea house located on the first floor of a Rundle Street terrace building. The signage is small and it’s one of those places that you actually need to look for. The decor is both charming and tasteful, which is totally opposite to its nearby neighbour. The elegant […]

Sliders On Rundle

Joining the burger bandwagon is Sliders on Rundle, which is located at the former site of Alfresco’s.  This place is not purely dedicated to burgers as your pizza and pasta options (that were available at Alfresco’s) are still on the menu. You could almost say that this place has become Americanised Italian, with the addition […]

Golden Dragon Palace Seafood Restaurant

It’s been quite some time since I last visited Golden Dragon and in terms of decor, nothing seems to have really changed. The place is traditional and elegant with the Chinese lanterns, the timber dividers and the wallpaper that features Chinese characters. The white table cloths and leather seating give this place a more luxurious […]

Birdcage Cafe

There are two stores named Birdcage on the same street, so this store should not be confused with the women’s clothing store a bit further down. Birdcage is a cosy little dessert store on the eastern end of Rundle Street. The decor is stylish and elegant with nice earthy colour tones. The wrought iron clock […]

Gallery

The eagerly awaited re-opening of the Gallery occurred last night, as those in the know, ventured up to the top floor of the venue. The first two floors are yet to be opened to the public, however, the star attraction, the expansive roof top bar, was impressive to say the least. With double the floor […]
