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…

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…

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…

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…

Saigon Gate

Saigon Gate is a restaurant located towards the northern end of O’Connell Street. The menu is primarily Vietnamese, however, some of their items are a fusion of other Asian cuisines. The place is traditionally decorated with a seating capacity of about 70. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and the service was pretty good. The…

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…

Dessert Story

My mother would actually love Dessert Story. The sago and tofu puddings, the taro and bean desserts and the various jellies and ice creams are what Mum would have had when she was growing up. I’m not so sure about the bubble tea or shaved ice, as that appears to be a relatively new concept….

Creperie Bruxelles

A friend told me about Creperie Bruxelles several weeks before it opened. I could have rocked up on the first day, but I find new businesses need to find their feet, in order to show customers what they really can offer. Knowing this, I decided to wait a few weeks and let the hype die…

Le Carpe Diem

Located on Grenfell Street, at the East Terrace end, is a new French creperie, Le Carpe Diem. Their food menu is basically made up of two main items, sweet crepes and savoury galettes. For those that are not familiar, galettes are flat round crusty cakes. The decor here is traditional Parisian style. The paintings, the…

Sato

Sato is small, and consists of a combination of traditional and normal tables. The seating capacity is about 40. The decor here is traditional, however I have seen more authentically decorated Japanese restaurants. Tonight, we were seated at one of the traditional tables. Each traditional table was setup on a split level floor with space…

Mother’s Crepe

Mother’s Crepe is found on a busy little corner on Grote Street. It shares its store with Chatime, which are both owned by the same franchisee. As the name suggests, they specialise in crepes with over a 100 to choose from. On top of that, they also sell smoothies and a range of ice cream,…
