Sad Cafe is a low key and modest little cafe located in the back street in Adelaide’s East End. You would not notice this quaint and cosy little place if you did not look carefully.
The venue is furnished in a mixture of retro mismatched tables and chairs. The walls are painted green with odd works of art hanging along the walls giving off a cool and quirky vibe.
Latte over ice. A delicious combination of ice cold milk and rich strong espresso which was refreshing and satisfying.
Homemade iced tea. Light in flavour with a mild spice.
Green eggs. Poached eggs served with avocado, spinach and a fennel gremolata, fennel spiced sourdough on the side with added bacon. The eggs were a little over cooked so there was no runny yolk when I cut into them but the gremolata was deliciously fresh, spicy and aromatic.
The toastie. Pastrami, hot tomato chutney, pickled onions, spinach and cucumber grilled with 2 cheeses on sourdough. The pastrami was moist and tender while the chutney added hints of sweetness. The 2 cheeses gave the sandwich extra decadence.
Sad Cafe is a little gem hidden amongst all the cool and quirky stores on the East End.
