    I got back to Adelaide so made my way again to Bar 9.
    Luckily for me this time the weather was fine and they weren't as busy.
    I only had a flat white this time and it was as good as my previous one.
    My companion enjoyed their long black.

    Very good coffee, up there with the best In Adelaide. Usually quite fruity notes. Great food and love going there for breakfast. Ian is an awesome guy and has to be congratulated for his influence on Adelaide's coffee culture!

    This has always been one of my favorite places in Adelaide. The coffee knowledge of the guys here is second to none, which leads to a pleasurable and yummy experience whenever I visit. I love the recent introduction of 'just brewed'. It's pleasing to see these guys branching out a bit and showing... Read more

    Bar9 is funky with coffee to back it up. Smooth, rich an creamy lattes at the perfect temp. Food is amazing an caters for most people well. Quick an friendly service all the time. It may be busy but if you want a takeaway you won't be left waiting long. My second fav for coffee but my fav if I was... Read more

    Consistent coffee, amazing food but sometimes understaffed with inconsistent service.

    Great new premises across the road from origin - great atmosphere - always busy - polite but distant customer service - I am determined to like this place, just because of what it means to the coffee industry in Adelaide, but I am yet to get a coffee I have enjoyed and have always struggled to find...

    We went to Adelaide for the TDU and went in search of a good coffee. Good on the basis that we use Brother Baba Budan in Melbourne as the yard stick. Bar 9 was on our hit list and we were highly impressed. Coffee was silky and smooth with great milk texture. We had 2 rounds each of flat whites and... Read more

    Fantastic everything. The new Bar 9 is probably slightly less hipster-friendly now that it sports things like 'tables' and 'leg room' bit the coffee is consistently great, the staff is friendly and prompt and the atmosphere is great. Best coffee in that area.

    Not sure why people are knocking bar 9 or what cafes in Adelaide they think are better. These guys have been around a while and whilst I preferred the older location for a chat with the baristas, their espresso is sublime and consistent. I've been offered numerous new blends to try whilst there... Read more

    Just a run of the mill standard coffee, nothing special, although I couldn't really fault it! Could've been a touch stronger, milk could've been a touch cooler, the bean flavor is a bit on the grainy side, but that could've been the shot pour I couldn't really tell! At the end of the day it's... Read more

    another day in bar 9, the picollo i had tastes so much better, must be because of the different blend they had, moved to the espresso it was fruity and complex and finish of with the syphon! fantastic honduras coffee. and the scrambled eggs with blue swimmer crab was devine! great experience!

    Ventured here with the family whilst on holidays. Had a flat white and ristretto, together with a breakfast wrap and was very impressed all round. Lots of love going into the work here (food and coffee) which is great to see, and as others have said you can grab a syphon also. I thought the... Read more

    Disappointing. Very slow service at the register and then took ages to get our take away coffees. All could be forgiven if the coffee was decent... alas no luck here either. Coffee had an unpleasant tangy acidic aftertaste and was generally weak in flavour. I prefer a strong coffee with well... Read more

    Sadly disappointed once again with Bar 9, really wish I had better experiences here but each time there is something that has let me down. This time was the service, surprisingly rude and i'm afraid I won't be back again... third strike.

    Visited Bar9 again, even when these guys are under the pump the coffee is still great. Enjoyed a pour over with a couple of friends. Will definitely be back for more soon

    Consistently good coffee. I always expect a little something different with the flavours and am rewarded. The larger shop lends itself a lot better to a cafe concept. communal tables, cosy 2 seaters and larger seat-benches look pretty good and are functional too. Really enjoy the vibe of the...

    One word... wow. Tried the syphon brew first. The claim was it\'s different, it\'s more than that. It was a great experience. I chased the syphon with a short Mac... Excellent... Adelaide can be proud and hold it\'s head high... full marks

    There's definitely something special about Bar 9 - amazing food and very good coffee. The espresso is beautiful but the latte can sometimes lacks substance. However, it has become the victim of its own success. The staff are always very friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.'s always... Read more

    have been here twice now in the new location and once in the old.
    Their coffee is constant, the food isn't to bad.. It is kinda a melbourne vibe
    howver some of the clientele are a bit weird/stuck up but i guess it just that part of town
