I like Bravo. In fact I drive past a heap of other cafes to get here and that's because it's always open. Adelaide has draconian shopping hours by world standards but Bravo bucks the trend and I can always get a decent coffee. I'd rate the coffee 4 but the whole shooting match couldn't be more than a three. Average... More

Very ordinary salad. So many olives. I asked for halumi as I'm a vegetarian. Halumi not available. I asked for the Caesar dressing. It was very boring and tasteless dressing. Wish I'd had the pizza. It looked nice. Not much choice for vegetarian.

Mother's Day and the place was packed like sardines, good if your the owner, not so good if you want to hear what the people opposite are saying. I have rated similar cafés before, Primo's , Brunellies , Europa and they are all the same , nothing imaginative here on the menu , Fish and Chips and Ceaser salad was... More

We met up with friends for lunch today in bustling down town Nortwood a suburb of Adelaide. The Cafe was over crowded with tables and chairs up front but down back it seemed to be more spacious & quiet but all good with a lovely long counter where you placed your order & heaps of food on display with a...

We love coming here for a family meal. The pasta dishes are hearty and tasty, the salads are filling and the service is cheerful. Always consistent with the quality at Norwood.

Amazing little Cafe in the Parade. Second time I've been there and will definitely be back. Had Skinny Chi latte and will be one of my favourite places to have these. For cake we had a citrus poppyseed tart and was really good.

Our group love a good Affogato so after our meal at nearby Rain Asian Restaurant we decided to go to Bravo for a coffee. Don't go here for an Affogato as the ice cream they use is disgusting and not a good quality ice cream suitable for that type of drink. Recommend a better quality ice cream. Don't think we'll...
