A weekend trip to Adelaide called for checking out some of the best breakfasts and dinner this beautiful city had to offer. We had a wine tour booked in (naturally) so were after something quick, delicious and close to where we were staying. A quick google search led us to The Coffee Barun, a rustic roasting house serving up some pretty amazing breakfasts.
ATMOSPHERE & SERVICE
Walking in the cafe was quite busy, which made finding a table for 6 a bit more difficult than usual. We were able to grab the last booth, perfect for our large group. The restaurant has a large open concept, with wooden bench seating, high top oversized black tables with rustic wooden chairs, and unpolished concrete floors.
To the far right of the cafe is the roasting area, with some heavy duty machinery and piles upon piles of coffee beans. The best part is all their premium coffee is available for purchase. The Coffee Barun focus on the highest quality beans, with selections including Ethiopian Harrar, Costa Rican Micro Mill and the Columbian Pitalito Supremo.
The service was friendly and there was an abundance of staff available which definitely help’s with a busy cafe. Ordering takes place at the front counter, located in front of the open concept kitchen.
As this is a roasting house, it’s probably best to start with how amazing the coffee was. We were all after a strong beverage to start the morning before our wine tour, and the coffee here definitely it the spot. It was beautiful in both presentation and flavour.
The menu focuses on wholesome fresh ingredients from the local area with both healthy and indulgent dishes to choose from. The menu only has a hand full of breakfast and lunch dishes, with a rustic cabinet at the front with beautiful pastries and snacks to enjoy either at the cafe or for take away.
MC did his usual build your own breakfast with poached eggs, bacon & roasted mushrooms. Eggs were cooked beautifully and a generous portion of both bacon and mushrooms.
RC ordered the ‘French Toast’ served with maple syrup, banana and bacon topped with icing sugar for that added sweet touch. Presentation was beautiful and the toast had a slight crunch around the outside oozed with goodness as the syrup soaked in.
I kept it healthy with the ‘Housemade Granola’ served with fresh seasonal fruit and natural yoghurt. The granola was served in a rustic mason jar, with natural yoghurt on the side. Seasonal fruit was scattered around the old wooden board which everything was presented beautifully on.
Overall we definitely found a great little cafe in Adelaide. We weren’t after anything fancy, however the food was fabulous and the coffee was delicious. If you are in the area, we definitely recommend stopping by and checking out this little neighbourhood gem.
