The Mill – Middleton, SA
29 Mill Terrace, Middleton, SA, 5213
Having driven past the sign a number of times on weekends, I was looking forward to an opportunity to finally sample the coffee at this extraordinarily interesting looking building. Now I know that we do not have a great deal of european history in Oz (at least not in comparison to other parts of the world – 220 years or so) but I always find the insides of old mills and factories – especially ones that are now being used for other purposes, to be fascinating. And this one is no exception – as it is now an occasional wine bar, cellar door, café and purveyor of 50s, 60s, and 70s furniture. I visited the Mill on Sunday afternoon with a group of ladies from church, who like me, weren’t really in the mood for a hit of tennis or a surf – and so we ventured forth and infiltrated this play of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some caffeinated combustibles.
Latte Quality – Good – good colour, bit too much foam – but it was ok.
Cost – $3.00 – for a standard sized cup.
Coffee Supplier – Villeré Coffee – from the McLaren Vale
Fair Trade – No mention in the café nor on the website
Venue Suitable for:
- Quiet Chat/Deep and Meaningful/Study and Reflection – A good possibility – however, the mill is only open on weekends 10am – 4pm according to their printed material, but also on Fridays according to their website – click HERE for more. So on long weekend my guess is the place would be packed – and they have occasional live music.
