8 Coffee Shops in Adelaide You’ll Find Us Janes At

 In Food & Drink

Coffee edges on religion in Adelaide. From unassuming hole-in-the-wall spots and laneway digs to old train stations-turned hip coffee bar, you’re going to need lots of caffeine to get through Adelaide’s growing list of cafes.

And, I’m just about to add another eight… one for every day of the week, and twice on Sundays. Because, hey, we can never have too many brunch idea options, can we, Janes?

Some of the best coffee in Adelaide… According to Jane

303 By the Sea

Always dreamed of visiting Greece? Grab your latte at Henley Beach’s 303 By the Sea, and you’ll get a taste of the Mediterranean with its blue and white colours and ocean views. The French toast and baked eggs are my favourites on the menu.

Café Troppo

This environmentally-ethical café celebrates wholesome food, with a complementary natural design. With its draped leaves, recycled materials and wooden architecture, it’s easy to forget you’re in the heart of the city.


Want a café with more space for the kids or a client meeting? Commissary, shouldering Adelaide’s eastern edge, is an upscale café with a menu you can’t ignore – acai bowls, waffles, egg concoctions and sweet treats.

Where We Met

Any given weekday morning, you’ll find at least one of our Janes sipping on a delicious coffee at Where We Met. Not only did they just get voted Adelaide’s best coffee in the South-West of Adelaide, pick anything of their delicious menu and you’ll be a happy girl.


Skip Cibo and visit Ballaboosta, just off Hutt Street. Start with a coffee and stay for lunch – from a menu that’s part Mediterranean, part Middle Eastern. If you’re there in the late afternoon, the Espresso Martini will kick your night off just right.


Keep this intimate little spot in mind for the next sunny day. It’s an outdoor café along The Parade. Have a coffee and their famous bruschetta. There for lunch? Try the veggie stack on sourdough.

Coconut Estate Eatery

This café takes coffee art to a new level, with colours and edible decorations. With a Sri Lankan-inspired twist, expect an explosion of colours (and flavours) at Coconut Estate Eatery. They might just have the most Instagrammable food in Adelaide.

Yeah Nah Yeah

When it comes to coffee, it doesn’t get more local than a roaster 20 minutes away. Try Adelaide’s Show Pony coffee at Yeah Nah Yeah – a café new to Torrens Park. It’s bright, playful design (and menu) mirrors its philosophy: “we’re here for a good time.”

And, that’s exactly how cafes should be… an experience. Good coffee just brings us in the doors, hey Janes.
