Please Say Please, Coffee Branch and Paddy’s Lantern were among the first small, owner-operator cafes to introduce Adelaide to the world of specialty coffee more than a decade ago. Whyld is continuing that legacy in a quiet corner of Prospect, and is a coffee shop in the truest sense – it’s a shop that serves coffee, and not much else.
Owners Jordan and Tim Harris have partnered with award-winning Canberra roaster Ona for the house line-up. But Whyld is also home to one of the most exciting coffee reserve lists in Adelaide, and the brothers use a snap-freezing process to preserve their favourite high-end coffees from all over Australia.
Things are intentionally kept simple on the food side with a couple of hot items – toasted banana bread by Abbots & Kinney and a grilled croissant – and a selection of pastries from Stepney’s Prove Patisserie.
The Harris boys launched Whyld back in June of 2020 during a flurry of activity in the inner north. Frankly Bagels and Neighbourhood Coffee – which practically face off across Churchill Road just a kilometre away – both opened within weeks of Whyld, and all three are embedded in the bases of new apartment blocks.
