UR Caffe - North Adelaide, South Australia

We ventured to a new cafe over the weekend. It's called UR Caffe and it's on Melbourne Street in North Adelaide.

UR Caffe

UR Caffe is run by a young couple who recently moved to Adelaide from Sydney to start their very first cafe. It has been open for around 6 months now and business seems to be picking up. We really liked this idea of a whole wall painted black and used as a chalkboard menu. For those who prefer paper menus, they've got those too.

The guy behind the coffee machine is very serious about his coffee. He's the one who usually takes orders at the front counter as well, but those wanting to place orders while a coffee is in progress will simply have to wait. His coffee concentration pays off. Since I don't actually drink coffee myself, I got the low down from my hubby who says it's on par with the best we've had in Adelaide at Signature.

Plus, they do a wickedly good White Hot Chocolate. It only comes in one size, big mug, at $4.40.

They also sell heaps of different fruit smoothies, milkshakes and teas. The owners' Thai influence comes through in quite a few areas such as: some of the drinks, the Moo Yhong (flossy pork and mild chilli jam on toast - $4.90) and the fresh fruit and salad that come with the egg breakfast meals. On our first visit the fruit and salad consisted of watermelon, lettuce, tomato and cucumber.

The Bacon & Eggs for $8.90 was a big and satisfying meal. The fresh salad and fruit also gave it a unique flair. I noticed that you can also get avocado paste spread on your toast for no extra charge. When ordering a second coffee, we also noticed a glass display case to the right of the cash register and I fell in love with the Raspberry Lamington ($4). Had to get one to go and it was divine. The sweets are all baked on site and I can definitely recommend them as a good investment.

We were impressed with the prices, the quality, and the freshness of this little cafe. We will definitely be back for more.

  1. Will backup your husband on the coffee. I can order my usual ristretto and know that it'll be made correctly unlike most cafe's in Adelaide. UR caffe knows coffee.

  2. Thanks for the comment! I was just checking out your blog today before reading your comment. Love the concept and especially enjoyed the controversial Taylor Blend post and replies. Happy coffee drinking and cheers for stopping by!
