UR Caffe’ – North Adelaide, SA

119 Melbourne Street, North Adelaide, SA, 5006

UR Caffe’ is not just another ‘brick in the wall’ of the burgeoning speciality coffee strip that is Melbourne Street.  Bobby over at Adelaide Coffee said that the barista in residence here knew their place “and that’s behind a coffee machine” – which is high praise.  Located just two doors down from First Pour, and next door to 9Bar – this UR Caffe’ is a must stop on any coffee crawl.

Sporting a very funky, unique – yet comfortable interior – including some nice abstract art on the exposed brick walls – Ur Caffe’ is a nice place, on a nice street to stop and watch the world go by.

Ristretto Quality – Excellent – approaching awesome – right up there with Coffee Branch for technique and delivery. This was a good two mouthfuls of sticky, syrupy coffeey (new word – deal with it) goodness – bombastic sweetness on the tongue with a spiced citrus lingering on the pallet.

Latte Quality – Excellent – again featuring some nice art work – although perhaps spoilt by some macro bubbles around the edge.  Following on from such a ristretto, it was not suprising to find the taste mellow by comparison – but there were some nice caramels and maple syrups hints there, which made for an excellent latte.

Cost – $3.00 Ristretto, $3.40 Latte.

Coffee Supplier – it is a well kept secret.  I asked and was refused the secret knowledge – as was Bobby before me. If you know what it is…please comment below!! 

Fair Trade – No mention that I could see in store or on the website.

Customer Service –  – average – pretty much what you would expect – you go away neither blown away by the experience, nor complaining about it; They were polite, just not friendly.  With First Pour just up the street, it was always going to be a hard act to follow.

Venue Suitable for:

  • Quiet Chat,  Deep and Meaningful, and/or Study and Reflection – I was there at lunch time, and while busy it wasn’t oppressively so – and I was able to sit and read for about 30 minutes before my butt became numb.

  1. I’ve spoken with the barista before and he mentioned that “his friend from RIO Coffee roasts their beans”.

    I’ve enjoyed both times I’ve been there. I just wish the chairs were more comfortable for a deep chat hehe!
