The Coffee Club – Marion, SA

Kiosk 206 Westfield Shopping Town, 297 Diagonal Rd, OAKLAND PARK,  SA 5046

On my way to see the seventh and penultimate Harry Potter movie, I decided that I needed a caffeine fix – and this place was closest (other than the $3.50 automatic coffee machine ‘coffee’ [word used loosely] available within the new candy bar run at the Cinema) – so I lined up, ordered my latte and proceeded to watch the entertainment that the staff offered. Let me just say, that if my lip reading skills were of higher quality I would have been much more offended at the things that the manager/barista was calling her waiting staff as soon as their backs were turned.  But on to the coffee review…

Latte Quality – Passable – a really long wait, for scoldingly hot coffee – which could just as easily have been instant.

Cost – $4.20 regular latter – which is on the expensive side of things – $4.40 if I wanted it to go.

Coffee SupplierOwn Brand

Fair Trade – No – although they promote their involvement with UTZ Certification – which is “coffee supports the farmers and their families through labour rights, healthcare, water and housing. The program also protects the environment by ensuring water and energy conservation, and protection of the landscape and soil”

Venue Suitable for:

  • Quiet Chat/Deep and Meaningful/Study and Reflection – Not really as it is located in the busiest part of the Marion shopping complex.  The Coffee Club at Knox City is perfect for all these activities as it was a favourite haunt of mine when I lived in that part of the world.

  1. As i live in the area, i thought i’d give this place a shot! After reading your review i was scared to try, but the guy manager who was working on the machine was friendly and made one of the best coffees ive had. Waited a while for it, but they were very busy. Happy i tried it in the end… is on the more expensive side of things though
