Adelaide's brunch bucket list

You've earned a morning away from the kitchen! Treat yourself to some of the best brunch spots around. Bring a book and a pair of sunnies to settle in for a leisurely morning of brunching.

Lot 10 Cucina and Bar

10 Market St, Adelaide

Lot 10 Cucina & Bar has slotted in seamlessly amongst the hustle and bustle of Market Street. Situated a hop, skip and jump away from the Central Market, expect your brunch to be brimming with only the freshest produce. Dishes are inspired by owner Vincent's Italian heritage but executed in a way that will surprise and delight you. There are over ten brunch options including the Southern Eggs in sugo with pane di casa or the Scrambled Eggs alla Cavolo with kale chips and gorgonzola. Why not make a day of it and stay for dinner?

Crack Kitchen

13 Franklin Street, Adelaide 5000

This busy cafe has a mouth-watering menu with everything made from scratch. It rotates every 8 weeks due to the seasonal and locally-sourced ingredients used in every dish. Their specialty coffee is roasted fresh on-site, and you can also take some home for yourself along with loose leaf teas and environmentally sustainable keep cups.

Peter Rabbit

234-244 Hindley Street, Adelaide 5000

A morning spent at Peter-Rabbit is a morning well spent. Laden with greenery, it's the perfect setting to ease into your day with a soul-satisfying feed. Start with Eggs Your Way and build your own adventure with delicious extras like mushroom ragu and avo + dukkah. Venture to the east side of the menu to explore the dishes like Peter's Ramen that put the (l)unch in brunch. Try the Rabbit Bowl for a healthy pick-me-up.

Delicia Acai + Protein Bar East End

24 Ebenezer Place, Adelaide 5000

Brekky in the East End has recently gotten a whole lot brighter! Delicia Acai + Protein Bar East End's signature acai cups are the perfect pick-me-up and are topped with goodies that will fuel your body and soul all day long. Rainbow combos of fresh fruit, chia pudding, acai and granola create a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds. You'll definitely be tempted to dig in before you can take a snap for Instagram - no filter required. There's also a range of yummy raw treats that you can grab to go.


96 Gilles Street, Adelaide 5000

Sibling is truly a family affair. Hubby and wife duo, Caitlin and Nathaniel, have set up shop on Gilles street next door to Ensemble which is the brain child of Caitlin's sister Anny. Baked treats are courtesy of their mum while sisters Rady and Isobel are making magic in the kitchen and supplying protein balls. The little kitchen is home to some big ideas, where a seasonal menu comes to life depending on what goodies are snatched up at the markets on the day. We have a major crush on the pulled pork baguette with an honourable mention going to the haloumi salad.

Bici Espresso

259 Hutt Street, Adelaide SA 5000

Start the day exploring the city streets and beautiful Park Lands with your posse on two wheels. After working up an appetite, cruise on over to Bici Espresso on Hutt Street. The menu is full of favourites, all constructed with beautiful seasonal produce. Weekly specials like Raisin French Toast topped with roasted banana and berry stew ensure there are new flavours at every turn. When in doubt, the big breakfast is always a crowd pleaser. The Bici Big Breakfast comes with bacon, eggs, chorizo, sautéed mushrooms, grilled tomato and toast however patrons are also welcome to build their own brunch adventure.
