“almost like home.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

This cafe is great! Just beyond the parklands along a major arterial road (Unley Road) out of Adelaide city. The owner, Rob, has a background in furniture and framing, and this is incorporated into the way the cafe is set up. Some of the furniture (imported and second hand) and furnishings are available for sale along with the coffee and food! Tables are placed far enough apart for relaxed conversations, and the carpet helps absorb any noise. So different to the usual cafe set up with chairs and tables crammed in, and tiled floors - the noise can be overwhelming. But here, the setting is relaxed - a perfect spot for lingering conversations or meetings. Choose what size table fits your needs. There is good natural lighting inside from the windows at the front and side, and some tables outside for al fresco dining. As for the food, it's healthy and wholesome with a good range of options. The cafe is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch, 8-5.30pm. The staff are friendly and relaxed, and happy to strike up a conversation. This is a business that's worth supporting! I'd recommend it

“Breakfast or lunch among the antiques”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Excellent food and service in olde world ambience. The address and the name are the same - Dunk & Unley. As you sit among the antiques, you can decide which ones you'd like to take home with you :-).
