When you walk into this establishment you would of never thought it was a old railway station back in the old days.

We went there on Saturday on a typical wintery day and the open fire made it so cosy. The 1920’s music which they play give the café more character. It’s a busy place but if you are happy to wait, the nice hostess will take your details and you wait for a table to be available. They have these great shared tables and its different and I haven’t found many cafe’s in Adelaide like that. I felt sorry for the couple which sat near us as our daughter decided to cry most of the time. Woops!


Their menu is mainly breakfast dishes but they have focaccia’s available. Their dishes aren’t the typical meals, they are different, creative and you don’t know what to choose as they all sound delicious.

Their coffee is great as well, it didn’t have that burnt or bitter taste and best part of it they roast their own beans.

I had pea and haloumi fitters with salmon, my husband had the lamb focaccia (he LOVED it) and my little angel had toast with mashed avocado (you could tell she enjoyed it she had it all over her face hahaha…). The dessert selection… yum! they have a good selection and we might of been naughty and had some dessert after lunch as well. Let me just say the blueberry baked cheesecake and chocolate brownie so worth it.


You single guys if your looking for a great location to bring your ladies this is the place for a date.

Norberto’s Buenos Aires


Taking a baby to a restaurant can be difficult, they can get bored quickly or make a mess with anything they are given. There are not many family friendly restaurants, but we might have found that special location, where you can enjoy great food in a family friendly atmosphere.

However, taking a baby along with you to a restaurant can get you special treatment.

Norberto’s Buenos Aires is located on Hutt Street in the CBD, and offers a fusion of Spanish, Italian, French and rustic Argentinian cuisine.

We were greeted by one of the owners’ who was very friendly with our baby daughter. This gave us that special treatment throughout the evening.

For main course we decided to try the Paella del Rey which entails a very rustic dish with a selection seafood and meats mixed with rice and vegies. We thought the mixture of flavours were delightful and complimented eachother.


A dish you should try.

Norberto’s offers great quality food in a family friendly environment.

Grace The Establishment









The area around Norwood is famous for destination dining. Tuck away in a row of restaurants, is Grace The Establishment, a premier eatery during the day and a popular bar at night.







The Grace left us feeling relaxed in a stylish but modern bar with a hidden gem of their beer garden dining area.

We tried a couple of the sliders including the Mini Wagyu Cheese Burger which featured American mustard, house made pickle, swiss cheese and tomato ketchup and the Mini New York Style Hot Dog which includes bacon, pickles and cheese. This was complimented French fries.


The sliders had a lot of flavour running through them. We also tried the taco’s that were on offer including the pulled pork taco and the sweet potato taco. Both didn’t have much flavour, and did not impress.
