Best cafe Coffylosophy in adelaide for 2016

Great coffee, great crossiants and great service.. you can tell by the number of locals who come in and are greeted by their names that this is not a once of experience. Will be back every time I'm in town

Best cap in Adelaide Nice friendly service Great breakfast

This will forever be my favourite cafe in Adelaide! The best coffee, excellent service, cool vibe and delicious food.

Best cafe Monday's Coffee Store in adelaide for 2016

Had a quick flat white there. The coffee was good but I tasted a lack of texture (a bit watery). The service is pretty good and the atmosphere is classic but still nice.

Minimalist. Both in the cup, and the decor. Ethiopian Chelba was clean with floral highlights, and hints of apricot.

Have been there this afternoon for a take away. The coffee was good (a tiny bit over extracted but better than the last time) and the service on point.

Best cafe La crema coffee in adelaide for 2016

Good coffee just difficult to find, service is very industrial

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

Coffee is always fresh and clean, service is great and this place is always buzzing

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

Great vibe and incredible coffee. Whilst the cafe is fun with hip hop playing and Josh and the team joke around, they take their coffee making very seriously. Can recommend!

Great atmosphere, great food, great coffee, great service! Highly recommend a visit to CREAM

Amazing coffee with a great vibe! Will definitely be back

Best cafe Tell Henry in adelaide for 2016

A funky / trendy coffee shop at the bottom of The Parade that makes strong great tasting full flavoured coffee. The staff and service were excellent. Welcoming and friendly which added to the experience. Tell Henry has been added to my regular haunt list. Love it 👍🏻☕️

Love the coffee, perfectly creamy

Still a hit in the local area, getting a seat can be difficult due to limited availability. Coffee is great with plenty to choose from. Aero press always a hit

Coffee Branch

Adelaide CBD

Best cafe Coffee Branch in adelaide for 2016

Had a double espresso. The coffee does not have the bitter after taste that usually lingers which is awesome. The kitchen is not open yet so they do not do breakfast as of now. However the staff is super friendly and helpful and gave us suggestions for a good breakfast place as we are just visiting Adelaide .Would definitely come back for the coffee :)

Narrow coffee bar, using single origin beans from TWO FISH. Had a short black and long black of their Rwandan, which was juicy, clean, and had some nice blackcurrant and chocolate tones. Coffee was the highlight here

Best cafe A Mother's Milk in adelaide for 2016

absolutely rocking place and definitely worth a breakfast visit... try the sardines. :) coffee is well done. barista knows his stuff.

Great service, French toast was huge and very tasty! Coffee is really good as well, and so is their tea selection.

Best cafe Please Say Please in adelaide for 2016

Popular hole in the wall coffee bar serving Proud Mary coffee.

I came here several weeks ago and wrote a positive review - that still stands to an extent. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays I love to come by for my morning coffee before work. There's a lady who I assume is the owner and a young girl with glasses who are both sweet and friendly, and make lovely coffee. On Thursdays and Fridays I skip last this shop because of their new hire. Every coffee I have had from her has taken several minutes to make, she's not friendly at all, bordering on rude. My coffee always tastes awful when made by her and previously when I've been in I've heard her make derogatory comments under her breath about customers ordering dairy milk coffees, which I find very unprofessional and off putting, and she also had very poor knowledge of the coffee compared to the other two employees. All in all, I feel that the new hire has been a poor choice and lowers the standard of the shop incredibly, and this was a shop I used to think had the best coffee and best standards in Adelaide. Go early in the week if you want a great coffee and beautiful service, but avoid later in the week unless you want to wait around for an unsatisfactory brew.

Staff were lovely... had a burnt coffee (espresso) though :( the coffee my friend had was better though. Also not the kind of place to sit and chill given the bus noises from the stop out the front. Probably good for sweeping through in the morning though. Better than most in radelaide...

Best cafe My Kingdom for a Horse in adelaide for 2016

What a beautiful space, with a colourful interior, and wonderfully friendly staff. Coffee roaster on site, on their trusty Probat. The Ethiopian pour over was bang on.... sweet, fruity, with hints of jasmine

Been wanting to try My Kingdom for a Horse for some time and wasn't disappointed. Lovely space in an area of Adelaide that has a Melbourne feel to it. Had the BIG brekkie fry up and a couple of coffees and wasn't disappointed....great service and vibe will certainly visit again.

Parking is really bad but when you get in you can understand why! Coffee was a little over extracted

Best cafe Fair Espresso in adelaide for 2016

The coffee was just so-so. As a few reviewers have mentioned it was watery without any real flavour profile to speak of. The service was good

Good coffee to grab before heading into the courts. Service is great yet to try the food.

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

Best cafe PURE Boutique Coffee Bar in adelaide for 2016

cool place! super friendly staff, knowledgeable barista and unique menu! needs more moustaches though! ✌

The speed of service really lets pure down... the coffee is served at the right temperature which was great!
