The Best Coffee in Adelaide

Updated 3 months ago


Adelaide's coffee scene has come a long way in recent years. Far from offering just a single dark-roasted blend, many cafes now offer multiple beans and extraction methods. But whether you're a fan of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe poured through a V60, or a full-bodied Brazilian extracted into a latte, these spots have you covered. Go on, get that day started.

  • A seasonal espresso blend and of-the-day single origins.

  • You'll find this former Melbourne cafe and roastery in a sprawling warehouse. Barista and roaster Sean Do has brought his cafe – and coffee expertise – home to Adelaide (and enlisted long-time friend Dos Cavuoto). Visit for house-roasted coffee, house-made doughnuts and all-day breakfast.

  • Drink coffee and see it roasted in the one light-filled space.

  • Known for its bright brews without a sniff of coffee snobbery, this cafe and espresso bar serves up air-roasted coffee, steering away from traditional brewing methods. Also on the menu are granolas, sandwiches and pastries from Prove Patisserie.

  • A hybrid coffee roastery and cellar door, surrounded by stunning wine country.

  • Everything a city espresso bar should be, and nothing more.

  • A brunch and specialty coffee spot that welcomes families with genuine enthusiasm.

  • Day through night, this lush alfresco space has you covered.

  • Creative brunches that don't rely on eggs on toast.

  • Adelaide’s most nomadic cafe is back where it all started, in leafy Kent Town. Hit this polished local for the same Industry Beans double ristretto, Bad Boy brekkie roll and community vibe that made it a hit from day one.

  • Two brothers are behind this low-key coffee shop, with one of the most exciting reserve coffee lists in the city. It’s also serving up baked treats by locals Prove Patisserie and Abbots and Kinney.

  • A laid-back neighbourhood coffee shop that’s like a second home for the city’s south-end locals. House-roasted coffee, hearty salads and bagels baked on-site are all part of the equation here.
