Real talk. It’s freezing. If you’re like us, you’re on the hunt for the perfect lunchtime pick-me-up (or should we say, warm-me-up).
And what makes for a better wintery lunch than a delicious toasty oozing with mouth-watering local cheeses?
Whether you’re in the mood for the traditional cheese toastie, or something a little more adventurous (cheeseburger toastie), this list should have you covered.
Hey Jupiter – 11 Ebenezer Pl
There’s nothing like a visit to Ebenezer Place to uncover some of the sweetest little hidden away cafes. Hey Juptier is a French-themed place that serves up some gorgeous French-styled cheese toasties. Oui s’il vous plaît.
FRED Eatery – Aldgate Village, Adelaide Hills
For something a little different, try out FRED Eatery’s gourmet toastie served with egg and herbs on the side. Positioned in the Adelaide Hills, this is the perfect place to pop in for lunch if you happen to be in the hills.
Home Ground (Sage), Riverbank
If you’re looking for lunch, a sneaky snack before the footy, or just looking for a bite to eat with an awesome view overlooking at Torrens, head to Sage at Home Ground for their $10 Barossa Valley ham & Swiss cheese toastie with tomato chutney.
Larry And Ladd – Shop 36, Regent Arcade
Larry and Ladd is the perfect little hideaway to enjoy a toastie and stay warm and toastie (ha) before you have to brave the cold down Rundle again.
Market St – 11 Market St
Okay, look at the extravagance. This porchetta is crispy, cheesy and totally delicious. For those with a sweet tooth, look out for the dark chocolate frangipane brioche french toast with house-made honeycomb and vanilla bean ice cream… it’s not exactly a toastie, but it sounds so good.
Pickle In The Middle – 134 Unley Rd
Take a look at all that gooey cheese! Is there really anything else to say…?
Please Say Please – 50 Grenfell St
We say please and thank you for this delicious gourmet toastie from our friends at Please Say Please. Truffled mushroom and gruyere cheese … we’re drooling.
Neighbourhood Espresso Bar – 129 Churchill Rd
Okay. Prepare your bellies. The Neighbourhood Espresso Bar is serving cheeseburger toasties. Try the Mac and Cheese variation made with Gruyere and smoky maple bacon jam, or the Reuben, stacked with pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and house-made Russian dressing.
East End Cellars – 25 Vardon Ave, Adelaide
East End Cellars offer a superb array of ciabatta toasties. Does a tomato, stracciatella, pesto, gouda toastie on fresh SoiBoii baguette sound good? We certainly think so.
Proof – 9 Anster St, Adelaide
What’s better than toasties? Toasties and wine. Welcome to Proof; the small wine bar located in Anster Street. Proof serves a mushroom, truffle and gruyere toastie, and if that’s not a fine combination, we’re not sure what is.
Peter Rabbit – 234-244 Hindley St
Vego’s rejoice. This toasted focaccia at Peter Rabbit is packed with mushrooms and leek, and oozing with cheese. A mouth-watering brunch treat.
Pave – 138b The Parade, Norwood
Check out the Ruban special at Pave Café in Norwood. It looks loaded. The perfect stop off on a winter’s day.
Crack Kitchen – 13 Franklin Street
How about this Hock Toasty? Smoked ham hock, melted manchego béchamel, fermented cabbage & pickles. Delicious.
