One of my favorite cafes in Adelaide. Being a regular I know that I'll always get great service, food and drinks. Ask for a Mint hot chocolate, it's the best. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming and will do their best to meet any dietary requirements you may have 😊

Quiet and dark atmosphere. Felt like a little too dark. Weird seating arrangements but very different. Some booths and tables. We sat on the second level unfortunately next to a group of rude fowl mouthed group that couldn't stay of their phone doing FaceTime. We had deserts and coffee. I had the sticky date pudding. It was very good but... More

We went with another couple to have a coffee and dessert. Jo had the gold cost coffee. Nice dark chocolate coffee with cream. Adam had the chocomint coffee. Dark chocolate with mint. Both agreed they were great coffee and very soothing. We also shared some banana and walnut crepe. Camarelised banana was amazing. Great combo for crepes. Atmosphere here is... More

My husband and I were here for our wedding anniversary dessert and have to say that both service and food was fantastic from beginning to the end. The atmosphere was incredibly romantic and intimate and the place itself had a unique style. Overall, both my husband and I were very impressed and will definitely be back. A definite must visit...

Went here for dessert after a meal at a nearby place and really enjoyed the chocolate volcano cake. It's an Adelaide institution and has moved with the times just enough, but still maintains an olde world charm.

Advertised as an "Edwardian" coffee/dessert place. Opens late and stays open till late. Really comfortable, quirky atmosphere with mismatched furniture. Great for a bite to eat - or to die for desserts. Arguably the best sticky date pudding ever made. It's comfortable and cosy. Very busy. Love going there and go often.

The sitting arrangements are great for small groups and couples. Petty good selection of coffees and tea. Desserts are usually big enough to share with two if you're inclined to want to

Took my friend from France to Spats after dinner for a hot drink and desert. We ordered the hot chocolate with baileys which was nice although the baileys taste didn't come through very strongly. The chocolate lava cake was made perfectly. The chocolate flowed out when cut into and tasted amazing. The raspberry coulis was absolutely delicious. My friend said... More

I always keep coming back to Spats for their Strawberry Crepe. It is so yummy! But if you're not into Crepes they have plenty of other deserts on offer as well as savoury plates if you still haven't had dinner! I can also recommend the great "Crush" drinks on their menu, the banana one is great. Great atmosphere, generally very... More

A group of us went here one Saturday night, we went upstairs and immediately felt right at home, the decor is lovely, a little dim though but staff are amazing, friendly and accommodating. There are so many choices of delicious desserts and a vast array of hot or cold drinks. The prices of desserts are a little high but worth... More
