Bar 9 Central
Bar 9 are the original boutique coffee specialists and the kings of coffee in Adelaide. One of the first cafes to offer specialty coffee and showcase real quality coffee in Adelaide. Their coffee beans are roasted to order and blended and aged on their main site at Parkside.
Bar 9 Central is located on the lower ground of Adelaide Central Plaza. I always come here when I am doing a bit of shopping on Rundle Mall and need to recharge.
My beautiful weak mocha made with Belgian chocolate. The milk was perfectly steamed and the froth light and creamy. These guys really know how to make coffee and they’re always consistent.
The menu is limited here compared to their main store at Glen Osmond but that doesn’t mean it lacks in quality.
Truffle mushroom ragu is one of their signature dishes that everybody raves about. Thinly sliced mushrooms with poached eggs, watercress and finished off with truffle honey on crispy pieces of toast.
The mushroom ragu was delightfully luscious and oh so creamy. The eggs were perfectly poached and oozing golden egg yolk and the truffled honey added an amazing rich sweetness to the mushrooms. Such a beautiful and delectable dish.
I also added bacon on the side which came out rolled up but it wasn’t crispy enough for my liking. Next time I’ll have to ask for it extra crispy.
Bar 9 Central is perfect for those wanting a good quality caffeine hit or a nice relaxing cafe brunch while hitting the shops at Rundle Mall. They also offer filter brewed coffee if you’re not in the mood for espresso or want to try something different. A great way to try the specialty coffees Bar 9 has to offer. Otherwise you can purchase some beans to take home yourself.
