The Parade’s newest brunch café offers incredible food with a strong local focus

30 Acres is the latest venue from Rik and Alex Fisher, who are bringing the fresh, seasonal produce from their Adelaide Hills farm direct to the plates of this Norwood space.

30 Acres is the latest venue to open in Norwood from Adelaide eatery experts Rik and Alex Fisher, who have long been supplying South Aussies with their expanding portfolio of incredible dining venues including 303 By the Sea, Kitchensmith and Oar. 

After purchasing a 30-acre farm in the Hills, the couple had a clear vision for their next venue: to create a casual, family-friendly brunch destination where products grown and sourced on their farm in Ashton would be lovingly created into mouth-watering dishes for their customers, taking the journey from farm to plate in one day. 

Featuring a bustling, open kitchen on the ground floor and a beautiful mezzanine bakery, 30 Acres shows its point of difference from many of its counterparts by focusing on South Australian produce throughout its offerings, including favouring Adelaide Hills butter over French for its plethora of pastries, donuts and baked treats.

30 Acres utilises the expert skills of Head Chef James Brinklow, who spent 12 years at the helm of The Lane’s kitchen, who alongside co-ownder Alex, has curated an incredible seasonal menu, with highlights including a wood-oven cocked chicken served with wilted kale, and a green olive and lemon sauce and a breakfast showstopper of pork and fennel coil sausage accompanied with beans and hash browns. 

Described as offering a modern Australian menu, 30 Acres is currently open for breakfast, brunch and lunch, with a view to open up dinner offerings throughout the evenings over the next couple of months, as the venue finds it feet. Rik and Alex are also keen to keep the space open late into the evenings, offering the perfect chance for customers to indulge in a mid-evening coffee and one of their decadent, in-house pastries. 

Not only an expert hand in the kitchen, co-owner and chef Alex is also the creative brains behind for the stunning interior of 30 Acres, which is an airy, spacious café decked out in natural fabrics and fibres such as solid timber and marble. The earthy tones throughout the venue are evocative of the Adelaide Hills property providing 30 Acre’s fresh produce, punctuated by authentic vintage light fittings sourced from the most unlikely places, including old ships and bomb shelters. 

The opening weekend of 30 Acres saw an enthusiastic response from Adelaideans seeking out a new brunch destination to their repertoire, with a steady flow of customers all weekend, who were delighted with the South Australian-focused ingredients and drinks list.
