Sweet treats in Adelaide

Dessert bars have become the pizza bars of the 21st century – popping up everywhere. With year-round access to superb fresh fruit and produce, the finest dessert bars are right here in Adelaide. Warning: calories ahead!

Chocolate Taperia

5/168 Melbourne Street, North Adelaide


If you’re looking for the perfect dessert bar after your dinner date, then Chocolate Taperia should be on your menu. With a cozy, romantic setting - cue in the lamp-lit booths - everything on the Chocolate Taperia menu is designed to be devoured with chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.

Chocolatree

25 O’Connell Street, North Adelaide

The Chocolatree is a favourite amongst Adelaide locals. Their menu boasts dessert shakes, fondues and waffles. There’s even a full page dedicated just to hot chocolate drinks! No wonder we keep doing back!

Dessert Story

118 Gouger Street, Adelaide

Dessert Story brings you the best of Taiwanese and Hong Kong home-style desserts and fruit smoothies. Handmade and using the freshest ingredients, you’ll enjoy their modern twist on traditional food.

48 Flavours

78 Gouger Street, Adelaide

An award-winning ice-cream bar, 48 Flavours specialises in amazing (sometimes exotic) tasting ice-creams and sorbets, using the finest quality ingredients. Many are sourced from the Adelaide Central Markets just doors away. Their ever-changing menu means you never know what’s available. Don’t worry, it’s all delicious!

Mayflower Restaurant and bar

Mayfair Hotel, 45 King William Street, Adelaide

While not technically a dessert bar, the Mayflower Restaurant deserves a special mention for its amazing dessert trolley. Choose from a range of intricately crafted desserts, all displayed on a dessert trolley wheeled right to your table. Just wait until you see the choux pastry swans!

Shibui Dessert Bar

Shop 2/160 Grote Street, Adelaide

Shibui is the latest offering from dessert chef Quang Nguyen. Developing somewhat of a cult following, Nguyen creates a new take on old fashioned favourites. The menu includes vegan and gluten-free options.

St Louis House of Fine Ice-cream and Dessert

19 Gouger Street, Adelaide
Shop 2, 20 O’Connell Street, North Adelaide

If you thought the name was a mouthful, just wait until you try the food at St Louis! Unashamedly decadent and exotic, the basis for their menu is their locally made, rich ice-cream. The crème on top (metaphorically speaking) is their range of coffees, hot chocolates and even dessert cocktails.

The Original Pancake Kitchen

13 Gilbert Place, Adelaide

The Original Pancake Kitchen is an Adelaide institution. Generations of Adelaidians have grown-up here; celebrating childhood birthdays then graduating to commiserating all-nighters. They never close, so there’s no excuse to miss this Adelaide icon!
