Café
Belying the name of our cafe, Crack Kitchen is an appealing establishment set in a renovated former bank building, featuring distinct architectural elements from the modernist period and located in the traditional centre of Adelaide city, across the road from Adelaide’s original General Post Office (GPO).

The name of our cafe features prominently on the front of the building, tiled in black and white as an artifice feature above our front door.

The ground floor is elegantly decorated with significant natural light and plants. The menu offers all-day brunch with a wide range of beautifully presented food, drink, and dessert options. Menu offerings are carefully curated by Head Chef Joshua Rawling, broadly respected for his ability to deliver exceptional flavour at a superlative level.

The mezzanine level of our premises overlooks the ground floor café and houses additional seating and our onsite coffee roastery.

Come and do Crack with us.

This is our go to place for breakfast in Adelaide. It is always good and busy so do make a booking. They have made room for more tables on the mezzanine level by moving the coffee roaster. Service is friendly and efficient. The coffee is really good.... beans roasted on site.. They also do takeaway. There were a lot more meat options on the new changed menu.... I personally liked the old menu better but there are some good options for those who do not eat meat. Eggs are good and presentation is good as well. We will be back.

Absolutely incredible atmosphere and vibe! I got the waffles which was incredible but a little disappointing that it was just one waffle! I could have had so many.

Fabulous scrambled eggs w swimmer crab, great coffee. It cracks me up that noise level on the review tops out at Energetic. WTH there should be a Painful option to signal the restaurant and other patrons who would appreciate that. I would say Crack scores an Energetic, definitely short of painful... but loud.

Booked a table outside but was instead seated inside. Took about 15 mins to even get someone’s attention to order and when it did finally come out I asked for no bacon (dietary) and instead double egg. Brioche bun came with 1 egg & a small slice of bacon. Also ordered English tea and after stirring it in & using the table sugar noticed the spoon had lipstick on it, (I do not wear lipstick). When asked to swap they brought back a new spoon, not new tea. It seemed like I was putting them out by asking for a replacement. When we paid I asked for no $5 charge for the extra bacon my wife ordered, due to the inconvenience. They were really opposed to making any extra accomodations. Thoroughly disappointed.
Atmosphere is awesome and if that’s the only reason you’re going you’ll be fine, if not...pass.

Nine of us dined here. Many different selections. Everyone was more than satisfied. For myself poached eggs on the best sour dough toast I have ever had was delicious. Great breakfast place. Can really recommend it.

Late breakfast, great service to find a suitable table for a guest with MS and difficulty walking.
All 4 of us were happy with food, I can recall my wife chose the “extras” of a big breakfast and was delighted. I chose prawn dumplings, absolutely delicious. Great juice and coffee!

Always busy, always good. Online booking system made it easy and only had to wait a few minutes for a table to clear rather than join the usual long queue of ppl waiting for tables. Love the location/fitout, and the chance to watch the world go by on Franklin Street. Plenty of Vego options and yumminess on the Brunch menu. Kids enjoyed their iced chocolates too!.

Not sure why cafe and restaurants feel the need to blast their customers with LOUD doof doof music. People go out to eat in a group to, hello, have conversation, NOT shout at each other. Crack's good food and coffee was spoilt by the loud music....next time we are going to the cafe down the road that is quiet....Such a shame
