Big table, not Zed's. Always quirky, always good

Living out of state now, I only get back to Big Table every now and then. It doesn't matter. The scrambled eggs and toast are always delicious and the service is always chaotic. If you're on a good thing, stick to it!

The food is sensational, it's good value and topped of with great coffee it's no wonder that you need... More

I ordered poached eggs on toast with mushrooms and juice. Served quickly and with little fuss, it was enjoyable, tasty and inexpensive. Next time, I might ask that my eggs are cooked just a little more. Overall, nice!

If you are wanting to get your day started well, then try Zeds for breakfast. The mushrooms on toast (ask for a side of Avocado), come with ciabatta toast smothered with cream cheese and topped with mushrooms and then bacon. Great value although the coffee doesn't match the food experience.

I go to the markets most weekends and Zedz is my cafe of choice. The food is excellent. The menu is always interesting and has some interesting variations.

Mr PughHugger and I are on the search for the best Eggs Benedict in Adelaide. Zed's is located in the Central Market. Its a bustling place but if you are dining in winter bring a jacket and gloves as it is in a cool location. We tried Zed's on a Saturday morning before shopping at the markets. It took a... More

Zedz Cafe, this poky and unstylish little stall at the Central Market makes a very creditable claim (on their sandwich board) to having the best coffee in Adelaide! I had been looking for a really good coffee and was starting to think my standards were just too high. But this is it: great flavour, strong, hot but not burnt, and... More
