Best sandwich in Central Market

I often go here for lunch to the sandwich bar. The always have amazing special sandwiches. The tall bearded guy working the sandwich bar is friendly and he has excellent cheese suggestions and makes the best sandwich.

The food and the coffee at Lucia's are fine - well very good really but the food and the coffee are not the real draw of this coffee bar. The history of this place is what counts. This is the oldest espresso bar in Adelaide and its location in the Central Market pays homage to the European migrant workers that... More

The best lasagna I have ever had and they only serve it on Fridays. It gets really busy so expect at lunch time to wait for a seat. I'm definitely coming back.

Had a short window of opportunity for lunch and went here based on my friend's recommendation. Had a bowl of pasta which was freshly made and very tasty - nice fresh ingredients. Great value for money, really fast service and friendly staff.

The Concierge at the Hilton on king William street told me about this place when I said I was from Melbourne and wanted REAL coffee. He said this place in the market is what I wanted. He was right! I also wish that I had stayed at the Hilton (!)

Great food and good prices, wide range of meals on offer. Getting a table can be a bit of a hit or miss

The food is ok. but it isn't worth the consistently terrible service I have had over the years...There are plenty of Italian restaurants in adelaide with great service and l great food. They need to revamp the service. Same women with cold attitudes
