Dawn Patrol

dp_1_rs

Dawn Patrol are definitely doing things a little bit differently. At their premises secreted away in the heart of one of Australia’s premier wine regions, they offer a ‘cellar door’ experience for coffee, serving up a tasting of an ever changing selection of single origin beans. They also open only on a Sunday, have no signage on the nearest main ...

A Coffee Lovers Guide to Adelaide and surrounds

20160803_124730-01-resized-960.jpg

It is interesting to see how the market for coffee is maturing and developing in the last few years. Mirroring the growth in interest in other areas such as craft beer and cider, as well as the now ingrained (over)use of terms such as ‘organic’ and ‘artisan’, coffee is no longer as simple as it used to be.

Phonatic

Mr Viet – Pho (and a pint)

Pho and a beer, thanks!

In my ongoing search for some of the city’s best pho, this rainy winters day took us to this little hole in the wall place in the hustle and bustle of James Place, Mr Viet. Since this somewhat accidental ‘quest’ started, this had been mentioned by more than a few people, so I was quite interested to see how it ...

Warming Asian soups and broths seem to be very much in vogue at the moment. While it might just be that I am becoming more familiar with them myself, there are a growing number of outlets that are building themselves (more or less) around a single entity, be it ramen, pho or in this instance laksa.

Cockles Cafe – Port Elliot

20160430_115351-resized-960-01.jpeg

Port Elliot is such a marvellous place. There is so much to it – way more than it appears to a first glance. Cafes, shops, restaurants, cellar door, pubs…some front and centre, but others also tucked away just waiting to be discovered.
