The first thing that struck me about this café in Clarence Gardens was the service. It was so refreshing to be greeted in a way that made me feel welcome. Also I did not need to tell the counter staff that I had not been there before because she asked me first and then proceeded to explain the many menu options. 10 out of 10 for service. I have read other reviews regarding the lack of service at Sublime but I can definitely say that it was very good on the day I was there.

The meal was served quickly and although it was not busy when I was there, I had the feeling that the kitchen has good systems and is well-organised.

The food offers healthy, vegan and organic options much the same as other cafés in this genre and on first glance, seem rather on the expensive side compared to other places. However, the haloumi served with pesto scrambled eggs was a very generous size and was good value for money. Many places serve microscopic meals for quite high prices and this was not the case here. I can’t say that it was the best food I have had in a similar cafés but it was not the worst either. It came out hot and was pleasant to eat. The coffee was a little on the ordinary side – I had a large size latte and it did seem a bit weak although perfectly drinkable.

The decor at Sublime was fresh and modern. It makes a pleasant change from the shabby retro/chic look that has been overdone in many of Adelaide’s cafés. It is good to see that some owners are quite happy not to follow this look – it seems cleaner and fresher anyway and this place was light and airy because of this, and also the many windows that were spotlessly clean.

Sublime is on a busy road that runs through to Cross Road and is easy to find. It is right next door to East Terrace Book Shop. If you like books, spend some time in there as well. The owner is friendly, knowledgeable and very happy for you to be in her shop browsing.

Summary: Food good quality, value for money, generous serves; service  – friendly, efficient and welcoming; location – easy parking on East Terrace or the side streets – you won’t have any trouble finding a place to park regardless of when you choose to go there. Worth a try? Yes – an honest café with good service. Give it a try and don’t forget the bookshop!

Next time you are in Goodwood, do yourself a favour and check out Alter Ego in Gilbert Street – that’s the street that runs down the side of the Capri Cinema.

 

This little cafe would have to be one of the best in Adelaide. The service and quality coffee from owner Rob is impeccable and the food served up by chef Brad is top class. The prices are unbelievably low – great value for money. I can absolutely recommend the Eggs Florentine served with delicious Hollandaise sauce like nothing I have ever tasted. Other favourites include Bircher muesli, grilled snapper … the list is too long.

The guys are very obliging and make up what you want if it’s not exactly what’s on the menu. Once you have been to Alter Ego you will go back again and again – and get exactly the same great service and brilliant food.
