The Deli, Thebarton

The Deli

Lazy lunching in the burbs one weekend at The Deli, a cafe turned bar at night with live music situated in Thebarton on a tiny strip of shop fronts and adjacent The Wheatsheaf Hotel.

We gave the caffeinated beverages a miss on this occasion and chose something more fresh and made to order, a smoothie for me and a juice for him.

The Deli
Banana, honey, yoghurt & cinnamon smoothie; $7.50
Apple, carrot, beetroot & ginger juice; $7.50

Drinks were okay although the smoothie could have gotten an extra kick of cinnamon and the juice, a smidgen less of the ginger.

The Deli
Gypsy eggs: free range eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce with chorizo, prosciutto and peas served with toast; $15.00

I tend to find baked eggs to be a bit ‘rubbery’ so this wasn’t a standout for myself. The spicy tomato sauce and chorizo was a welcomed distraction from the texture and flavour of said eggs.

The Deli
The Deli breakfast: free range eggs, bacon, Italian sausage, spinach, creamy mushrooms, homemade baked beans, hash brown and toast; $19.00

The poached eggs weren’t drained well enough so unfortunately for me, my toast was a little soggy from the excess water – not that appetising I tells ya! The homemade baked beans were good and flavourful with a spicy kick and the Italian sausage was super meaty bordering on a little dry. I didn’t think much of the hash brown or creamy mushrooms and the flavourless spinach and bacon was left untouched.

Interesting little hipster spot that seems to be a hit with locals and returning loyalists, I’ve also heard that their coffee and pizzas were good (don’t know why I didn’t order them *face palm*) but hey, maybe you’d like to give them a visit and let me know what you think. 😉

      Yeah… I wouldn’t even call them hash browns… I’ve heard that their pizzas were good but I don’t know if it’s enough to get me back. Not any time soon anyways. Hehe.
