If you’re on this page, it means you’re hungry and ready to join Adelaide’s growing food board craze. There’s now gelato boards and pasta boards, but the original breakfast platter will forever have our heart.

Loaded with eggs, meats, veggies and breads, these boards are stacked and ready for consumption. And besides, they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not have a massive, colourful one to share with friends?

Here are some of Adelaide’s best breakfast platters.

Luigi Delicatessen

Look no further for an epic breakfast board: Luigi Delicatessen serves up the city’s best breakfas, and their platter is stacked with bacon, sausage, eggs, bread, veggies, and sauces. You can feast on this delicious share platter in the restaurant’s beautiful venue, which has an open kitchen and open bar, so you can watch as they prepare both your food and coffee.

Luigi Delicatessen is no stranger to Adelaide’s food board craze, and is fact often cited as its originator. The Franklin Street restaurant, which was on Flinders Street for many years prior, has crafted their signature share platters, which include meat platters, seafood boards, breakfast platters, and homemade pasta boards, since its opening.
