Quick Trip To Adelaide

Hi everyone, got back from Adelaide last night and couldn’t wait to show you a fantastic bistro we found there called The Store in Melbourne Road, North Adelaide.  

My family and I were in Adelaide for the weekend to visit family and stayed in an apartment in upmarket North Adelaide, an area I haven’t visited before but loved.  Melbourne Street was the main street dotted with beautiful cafes and shops.

My daughter Hayley organised for us as a family to have breakfast at The Store on Father’s Day.  Hayley rang, made the booking and secured us a beautiful table outdoors, it couldn’t have been better.  The food and service was fab in a beautiful and relaxed setting you can only find in Adelaide.

The sun was shining and we decided to start breakfast off with a Mimosa champagne drink (champagne and orange juice) followed by avocado and danish fetta on rye with poached eggs for Emma and I, the big breakfast for Nick and the most gorgeous bowl of bircher muesli for Hayley, topped with half a miniature poached pear.

The interior was french bistro style, warm and inviting with lots of pictures, lamps and touches to make you feel welcome.  We’ll definitely be going back there when next in Adelaide.

We all felt like an Indian meal the evening we arrived and with the power of google on an iphone tracked down Delhi Spice..The Curry Delight.  The food was delicious, authentic and reasonable and the restaurant unpretentious.  They don’t have a website but their address is Shop 271A Oaklands Road, Marion, SA, Ph 8177 2355.

If you like organic food Wild Thyme was packed full of people every time I walked past.

On another note, two exciting things have happened to me recently.  I was offered a place at a blogging conference in Adelaide in November called Eat.Drink.Blog 3.  The conference is fully sponsored, there were only 70 places available and was oversubscribed by 55%.  On the Saturday afternoon I’m doing a food writing workshop with Dianne Jacobs of “Will Write For Food” fame.

The other exciting thing was being quoted in a wonderful article Mel Chesneau of Armoire, Pegs and Casserole wrote in Neet Magazine on Holly Becker of Decor8’s Blogging Your Way course.  I’ve completed BYW1 and 2 and can’t recommend Holly’s online course enough if you’d like to know more check out the article in Neet which has just come out.  Thank you so much for including me Mel.
