Luigi’s Delicatessen do breakfast extremely well, they’ve always done it well. Trip Advisor knows it, people who go there know it, tourists know it. And now that it’s been awarded Adelaide’s Best City Breakfast Cafe in the Restaurant & Catering Awards For Excellence this week, you also know it.
There’s a reason why Luigi’s is STILL rated #1 Adelaide restaurant on Trip Advisor and is a major hotspot for out-of-town visitors. And just to be clear, that’s #1 Adelaide restaurant out of 1,388 restaurants – as voted by diners themselves. Not a bad accolade for a cosy, little Italian cafe, which isn’t even in one of the city’s busy thoroughfares!
You won’t find a traditional menu handed to you at Luigi’s, instead your options are listed on their blackboard daily. The food offering changes daily to bring customers the freshest, best options for the season and although the breakfast menu be small, she be mighty. You probably won’t know what anything on the menu is just reading their Italian names, but just ask any of the friendly staff and they’ll be more than happy to let you in on all the juicy details of what you can order. Naturally, we ordered a selection!
Firstly, let us just say all of the dishes are pure food porn if you’re prone to taking snaps of your meals. You won’t be able to help whipping out your phone for this and do it shamelessly we say. Each dish is both beautifully prepared but equally delicious.
Another great thing about Luigi’s is that they’re super hospitable. If you’re vegan, vegetarian, celiac – you name it – they’ll cater any dish on their menu for you and if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, they’ll even create new dishes to suit your dietary requirements.
With that said, all that’s left to do know is try it out for yourself. Lets get behind this incredible place and revel in Adelaide’s own food heroes.
