The Avondale Deli – Victor Harbor, SA
25 Ocean Street, Victor Harbor, SA, 5211
The Avondale Deli, according to their signage and website, have been serving the good people of Victor Harbor “since 1888 and has just got better and better.” Touted (again, by their signage) as “Victor’s Best Coffee” the Avondale is an old-school Delicatessen, that serves meals and also functions as a Lotteries Commission Venue. Honesty in advertising is such a wonderful thing. Between 8:30am and 9:00am, it is one of the only places in Victor Harbor that is open – not just for coffee – but actually open. I had a coffee from this place not long after we moved down to the coast (over 2 years ago now), but giving them and their signage the benefit of the doubt I ventured back again their this morning, while waiting for my favourite place to open whilst my car was being serviced.
Latte Quality – Passable – the latte I ordered, while having a truly wonderful aroma, tasted watery.
Cost – $3.40 – which is slightly cheaper than the average price these days.
Coffee Supplier – Mahalia Coffee – which is one of my all time favourites – pity.
Fairtrade – Mahalia do do some Fair Trade Coffee but the one used here – and in most locations (see previous reviews) – is their Blend No.2 which is not Fair Trade.
Special Notes – It was open when I needed coffee.
Venue Suitable for:
- Quiet Chat, Deep and Meaningful, Study – Probably not – for some reason, this place did not give me a good vide – but then again, that is just my personal experience – yours will most likely be different.
