Adelaide Hills

5 of the best cafes in the Adelaide Hills to share brunch with your babe or bestie

The Adelaide Hills is famous for many things. It’s wine and artisan food. The hiking and hills. Markets and adorable hamlets. But there’s one aspect that’s undeniably a Hills’ thing – brunching in a charming café. 

From the modern café chic of Hahndorf’s popular Haus, to Stirling Red Cacao (sending chocolate lovers running to do Mount Lofty), there’s plenty of coffee shops and cafes to delight every type of bruncher.

Whether your taste is wandering through farmer’s markets with a coffee in hand or sitting down with the fam in a kid friendly Hills’ café, there’s plenty of options for you.

2. Harvest Mylor Café in Mylor

This is the kind of café you find on a Sunday drive in the Adelaide Hills. Harvest celebrates the best in the region’s local gourmet food. Stop by for brunch or, on a slow afternoon, for a coffee and sweet treat. Sit outside with gorgeous leafy Hills views.

3. Red Cacao Chocolatier iin Stirling

This spot doesn’t need much introduction. When it comes to Adelaide Hills cafes, Red Cacao is hugely popular, thanks to fantastic coffee and delicious chocolates. Need we say more?

4. Piccadilly Kitchen in Piccadilly

A region that people don’t first think of in the Adelaide Hills, Piccadilly is well worth a visit – for this café alone. Colourful, rustic and homey, Piccadilly Kitchen is what your stomach imagines in a Hills café. Sweets, pastries and coffee are on the menu.

5. The Haus in Hahndorf

We can’t talk about cafes without mentioning the Hahndorf’s Haus. If you haven’t been before, expect German specialties, breakfast and hearty pizzas in a lively, rustic-chic wine bar with beer garden… for brunch, lunch or dinner. While there’s plenty more cafes than we’ve listed, these are just a few you might not know about. We hope you love coffee!
