The Store – North Adelaide, SA
157 Melbourne Street, North Adelaide, SA, 5006 (Cnr Melbourne & Jerningham Streets).
The third coffee stop of my 36 hours of leave in the city was a breakfast latte at The Store. As I waited for it to arrive, my wife and I reminisced about the time when we met here with our friend and pastor, who was going to conduct our wedding the following year – we ate breakfast, drank coffee, and completed the ‘notice of intended marriage [aka Form 13 – regulation 38 – marriage act 1961]’…ahh those were the days. The Store is located across the road from Café Bocca, on the south side of Melbourne Street – on, what I have deigned to call, ‘coffee corner’ and as the name would suggest, ‘The Store’ is much more than just a Café. It is also a Grocery Store for those who can afford to live in North Adelaide, and who love to dine on locally produced food.
Latte Quality – Excellent – just the right temperature to enjoy as we made our way home from our short break.
Cost – $4.70 grande take-away
Coffee Supplier – Brasilia Coffee
Fair Trade – No indication in store about it – and the website is ‘under-construction’ so who knows?
Venue Suitable for:
- Quiet Chat/Deep and Meaningful – Outside of the busy meal times, this place would certainly work – plenty of space, both inside and out.
- Study and Reflection – As long as you are going there outside their peak periods should be fine. This part of North Adelaide is also handy for grabbing a take away coffee and walking the streets, if that works well for conversation. The Cibo across the road also has an Internode hotspot – so you can sit in either Bocca or The Store – enjoy a good coffee, and use their internet!
