Top 5 Update

If you have nothing better to do with your time other than make coffee, drink coffee and read coffee based blogs, then click on the ‘Top 5’ tab above and see my updated Top 5 list.  I feel like an abbreviated decaffeinated David Letterman.

Best Café in Adelaide?

Crema Magazine’s café review website ‘Best Cafés‘ is currently asking for people to vote for their favourite Cafe in Adelaide.  Make sure you get on there and vote – and if your favourite is not listed, make sure you email them and let them know!

the green room on high street – Willunga, SA

2 High Street, Willunga, SA, 5172

In my part of the world, Willunga is the place to go for good quality locally produced organic food, live music and quality coffee – so it should not come as a surprise to anyone to find such a positive review for another of Willunga’s top notch cafés. ‘the green room on high street [lower case by their design] eco-emporium & tea-fé’ is, as you would expect situated near the start of High Street, Willunga – or from my end “at the bottom of the hill.” It seems, from the outside, to be an eclectic mix of  café come studio come haberdashery come interesting nic-nac come alternative hang out come, come, come….it is hard to put in one box.  We ventured in after another successful outing to the Willunga Farmer’s Market and based on coffee alone – it was well worth the effort.  You can also get light lunches, snacks, sweets and all sorts – and on another visit, I will take one for the team and sample their food – but now to the all important coffee and locale review….

Latte Quality – Excellent – aroma, flavour, colour – brilliant!  It would have gone in straight as a ‘Lattastic’ but with my change in policy, it will need a follow-up to confirm such a high rating.

Cost – $3.50 – for a cup which is around the mark.

Coffee SupplierThe Coffee Works – Black Mountain

Fair Trade –  The store itself is very Pro-Fairtrade, however the coffee itself – being organic Australian grown and roasted is not Fairtrade (it does not need to be)

Venue Suitable for:

  • Meeting – Quiet Chat – Study and Reflection – As I ventured in on a Farmer’s Market day – you could barely move, let alone think and reflect – however there are plenty of tables both inside and out and I am sure it would be a great place for such pastoral activities during the week.  I hope to return there in the near future.
