Looking for a new brunch spot?

Let us introduce you to High Tide, the dog-friendly cafe in Semaphore that is located mere meters from the beach.

When owner Michael Cotton decided to buy the cafe formerly known as Whipped Bake Bar Cafe, he had a clear goal in mind: to mix it up, to revamp, and to attract a new demographic of patrons.

With the help of local business The Lane Flower Studio, the cafe has become a beautiful oasis and Michael says he wants the vibe to be ‘sunny 365 days a year.’

Along with the renovation has come a revamped menu which Michael says ‘will appeal to younger people with a wider palate,’ with vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on offer.

One look at High Tide’s Insta will have you salivating over delicious-looking dishes like poached eggs, fritters and plenty of local produce.

Coffee lovers will also rejoice at High Tide with specialty coffee on offer, as the flagship store for Single O Coffee Roast. Cold batch, cold brew and other specialties are available and will fire you up for your beach walk along the lovely Semaphore Esplanade, a mere 500 metres away.

Cotton’s parents bought the cafe just over a year ago and when they were looking to sell as pandemic set in, Michael jumped at the chance. He and his pregnant wife had decided to move back to Michael’s hometown of Adelaide and spend more time with family.

The timing seemed right and Michael was excited to implement his ideas for the cafe. Wishing to be a fixture with the locals, Michael also had the vision to make Semaphore a destination all of its own.

As part of this vision, Michael decided a new name and refurbishments were in order. The name High Tide, seemed apt, considering the cafe’s proximity to Semaphore beach.

Having lived in Sydney where he owned cafe’s, Michael decided he wanted to bring some light, bright, beachy, party vibes to the cafe.

Drop into High Tide today, relax, grab a bite and enjoy the vibes.

High Tide is open 7 days a week from 7.30am til 3.30pm at 35 Semaphore Road, Semaphore.
