Just a stones throw away from the Adelaide Central Market is Market St off Gouger Street on… you guessed it, Market Street—now that’s a lot of ‘market’ and ‘street’ in the one sentence—a one stop shop for your bakery and deli needs with an in house cafe so you can do your shopping and grab a coffee and bite to eat all at the same time! They bake all their breads on site and have a dessert cabinet that will make all dessert lovers weak at the knees once their eyes catch a glimpse of all the pretty and delicious sweet inventions on offer.
Cold brew accompanied with vanilla speckled honey and a long macchiato for the stranger
You can’t miss seeing the cold brew set up on the front counter when you enter Market St, so once we snagged a spot on the bench, I ordered a cold brew as I still needed my coffee fix that morning but wanted something a bit more refreshing and cooling as opposed to my usual go to of soy lattes.
Sausage roll with salad and Market St steak sandwich
We visited Market St after a stint at the gym, and after all that hard work, I thought that I deserved something substantial for all my efforts and ordered the monster steak sandwich with marinated eye fillet, mushroom omelette, caramelised onion, rocket and tomato jam ($16.90)… The stranger, being the more refrained one on this occasion, had a simple sausage roll with a fresh bright salad, just enough to kick his hunger pangs whilst I wanted to roll out of the cafe after that sandwich… haha. It was a delicious and gourmet sandwich no less, so big that a steak knife was stabbed through the centre, just to make sure the burger didn’t fall apart as it made its way from the kitchen to me. It came complete with crispy kipfler frites. Mmmm, fries.
Market St is just what the Chinatown precinct needs, a quality spot for coffee and brunch/lunch away from the bustling noise from the Adelaide Central Markets but still close enough should one forget to pick up an ingredient for that nights dinner party.
I’ll have to reschedule a date to return soon! Friends… any takers? 🙂
