Adelaide has joined the revolution.
The revolution, that is, that's seen tree-lined suburban streets become home to gourmet providores and hot dining spots.
My little neck of the woods, in particular, is suddenly the "cool" place to be seen with Mums and bubs enjoying babycinos; yuppies sipping on lattes; artists feasting on grilled haloumi; and girls catching up over french toast and bubbles.
Anyone would think I was in Melbourne!!!
These little cafes offer so much more than your standard egg and bacon breakfast. Quite often they're corner stores disguised as art galleries disguised as gourmet grocers disguised as coffee shops disguised as sandwich bars disguised as lounge rooms.
The furniture is comfy, the wait staff friendly and the food fresh and edgy. They do the classics, but they have their own little twist on them.
Case and point.
I rarely ever order sweet for breakfast but on a recent visit to The Stranded Store in Colonel Light Gardens, I was tempted by the daily special.
French toast with orange scented ricotta, smashed raspberries and basil.
It was just so different. And I caved. I chose sweet.
Ah-mazing doesn't even start to describe it. Can't wait to tackle my own version of this combination - I've never made French toast before . . . time to indulge.
Or just head back to Stranded!
