Best cafe Coffylosophy in adelaide for 2016

No 1 in Adelaide for a reason. Great coffee and a great overall coffee experience. Loved the visit here.

Ordered a piccolo latte that was competently made but lacked flavor intensity. Accompanying cinnamon donut was stale. Disappointing given the hype

Best cafe Monday's Coffee Store in adelaide for 2016

A bit hidden away, but sometimes those are the good ones, and it is not disappointing. Good temperature, nice size, and really flavorful with a slight fruity and nutty tone.

Had a flat white but wasn't sure if they got all the shot in for me as it was pale as. I asked about it and they offered to make me a double shot. When they brought it over, I said I really appreciated and she didn't acknowledge what I said and walk away after dumping the coffee down which didn't have much effort put into.. coffee was quite average too. Really seemed to have a bad attitude after some criticism in which I was polite about.

Usually Monday’s is full of great passion but today it just didn’t feel warm.

Best cafe La crema coffee in adelaide for 2016

We ordered three piccolos and a flat white. We were in a coffee accessories and beans shop with all the right equipment and drinking ware and our piccolos were served in latte glasses and the coffee was almost cold. The flat white wax properly served and a better temperature. All in all very disappointed having read reviews and found the establishment to be the head office for La Crema!

Best cafe The Coffee Barun in adelaide for 2016

Great breakfast, good coffee and a large space! Recommend

Best cafe coffee by the beans in adelaide for 2016

Legitimate great coffee Food needs a bit of work but 10/10 coffee Maybe invest in a sandwich press from Kmart for $10 for the banana bread

Easily the best coffee in Adelaide. Love it. Very friendly staff and great service. This is my go to coffee when I visit Adelaide. Near the airport, this is always my first stop.

CREAM

Brighton

Best cafe CREAM in adelaide for 2016

Buzzing little cafe serving some of Adelaide’s best. Don’t let the queue turn you away - pass on your contact details, have a wander around the shops or to the foreshore and you’ll get a call in no time. Food was great, but I was here for the coffee. I had the Burundi as a pour over, which was really well balanced, then some cold brew to take away. Staff were super attentive and professional, and managed to maintain the balance between friendly and casual and efficient. Definitely worth the hype!

Well worth a visit, good body and very good aftertaste, definitely return as I think it's the best you'll find anywhere around this area

Stella! I love this place and one of the only places I'll visit in Brighton! Wild food, Wild coffee and excellent friendly service :)

Best cafe Tell Henry in adelaide for 2016

Enjoy the atmosphere and my piccolo is consistently good, with complexity and richness that suits my palate.

Excellent Industry beans. Warehouse vibe. Good music. Smooth strong latte was first rate. Highly recommended.

Coffee Branch

Adelaide CBD

Best cafe Coffee Branch in adelaide for 2016

Awesome service, great tunes and most importantly great cup of coffee!!

Good option! Coffee and pastries - cool place. I can’t get over how pleasant the barista was - really good attitude and made the whole place.

Seemingly good guys but an average coffee. Had been here 3 years ago on my last visit to Adelaide and loved it but flat white this time around tasted dirty. Temp was great just an unpleasant coffee taste.

Best cafe A Mother's Milk in adelaide for 2016

First 3 sips sour, then the those velvety chocolaty tones start to shine through.

Settled in to the strong flat after a few sips, agree with Blake on the first few sips being a bit on the sour side. Also, my dad liked the food.

Best cafe Please Say Please in adelaide for 2016

Ordered a soy flat white. Decent coffee. Service was good.

Went in TWICE today, lovely sit down both times. girls working are sweet and friendly and took their time chatting with customers and giving them a great experience. Beautiful coffee and food!

Best cafe My Kingdom for a Horse in adelaide for 2016

Don’t get sucked up into the hype. The coffee is crap.

Terrific coffee, friendly table service and best banana bread I’ve had.

Closed until the 17th, wasted trip

Best cafe Fair Espresso in adelaide for 2016

A good find - it’s a pretty bare area for coffee but this is a good place.

Not too bad although a little too hot for me. Earthy taste to the espresso, but nice smooth after taste.

Coffee is super fab. Love the smooth flavour, always a good temp 👌🏻 Omg the food though. Yum. Leek and Mushy pie is the real deal. James Place is the smaller one of the stores but the staff and service is better than their other store 😇

Best cafe PURE Boutique Coffee Bar in adelaide for 2016

Food was nice, big serving size for the breakfast slider. Prices seemed a bit expensive, but I guess it’s the location down jetty road. $5 extra for hollandaise sauce or sautéed spinach!! Slider was $21. Nice coffee.

Good coffee, reasonable food options, friendly staff and probably the pick in the Glenelg foreshore area
