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…

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…

Chocolate @ No.5

I’ve only ever heard good things about this place, and you know what? Every word is true. Located towards the end of the main street in Hahndorf is Chocolate @ No.5. Set in a beautifully restored cottage, the polished timber flooring and stone walls give this place a warm and cosy atmosphere. The menu is…

Dolci Galleria

Dolci Galleria is a cute little dessert store located on Magill Road. The decor is simple and elegant with dark colour tones, a classical wallpapered feature wall, fancy light fittings and contemporary pictures that are also for sale. The menu is fairly standard for a dessert store. Coffee, hot and cold beverages, a small selection…

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…

Cocolat – Rundle Place

The Cocolat franchise is expanding. If walking to the end of Rundle Street was too hard for you, there’s now a store inside the Rundle Place food court. The desserts are pretty much the same, although I did see a few new ones on their menu. I’m not sure whether there has been an across…

Bittersweet Patisserie

Bitter Sweet Patisserie is located in a small shopping complex on Frederick Road. Cakes, pastries and chocolates are what these guys specialise in, and with a team that has world wide experience, they certainly mean business when it comes to sugary goodness. I actually stumbled on this place by chance and was surprised to be…

Bond & Lane Canteen

You would be surprised at the number of old shopfronts that are found in the suburban backstreets. Some of them are converted into residences, while others remain empty till this very day. Bond and Lane Canteen, on the other hand, have continued with past traditions, and opened up a cafe serving breakfast, lunch, sweets and…

San Churro – Gouger St

San Churro stores are popping up around Adelaide and the latest one to open is along the Gouger Street cafe precinct. Unlike their sister store on Rundle Street, this particular place is spacious and has a maximum capacity of 200 over 3 levels. The decor is typical of what you see in other San Churro stores,…

Patisserie Jin

Competition for your dessert dollar is pretty tough on Unley Road, because only a few shops down from this one, is another fine dessert place. Located in a well to do suburb, Patisserie Jin is owned and run by a Le Cordon Bleu trained dessert chef. The dessert menu is limited, however there is a…

Cocolat – Adelaide Airport

People usually go to airports because they have to fly somewhere, they’re in transit or they’re seeing someone off. Rarely do they come here just to hang out, but today, a group of friends and I just came to the airport for dessert. It sounded crazy, but in the end it was a good decision…

Windy Point Restaurant – Festival of Food 2013

If I was planning on proposing to a woman, one of the locations where it would possibly happen, would be at the Windy Point Restaurant. I would book a table for two, seated by the window, overlooking the city at night. Towards the end of the dinner, I would order two glasses of champagne. While…
