Only rate 4 star for coffee alone because I did not try the lovely food offered. A hidden gem just off jetty street, very quiet for a mid morning coffee which was one of the best and by close to lunch time a packed little cafe.

This place makes a great coffee, and if I need a coffee at Glenelg when I am there (they are closed on Sundays and Mondays) I will seek to go there.

All the food and drinks were natural and had a health appeal. Really nice environment and the barista took care with the coffees, making great drinks.

Had breakfast here recently catching up with an old friend who I'd not seen for such a long time. We were not hurried at all which was lovely and the smashed avocado on sourdough was absolutely delicious. Washed it down with a refreshing raspberry and watermelon juice. Staff were friendly and service prompt. I'd definitely go back. Only complaint was... More

Although I am not vegan, paleo, or pure vegetarian, I do enjoy the tasty treats at The Annexe Cafe. Their coffee is amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Seriously. The best cafe in town! They use organic fair trade coffee. They use South Australian produced milk puchased directly from the farm. Their raw cakes are always amazing. I tried the vegetarian lasagne and it was delicious. Tasted like it was made on site and not some mass produced snot.

On a side street just off Jetty Road, this is where the locals have a coffee or light meal. Tourist don't know about but we do and go there.

great coffee, great service and a good selection of raw, vegan, vego, GF food. For breakfast you can't go past the chia cups and a juice, smoothie or coffee. They are very filling. For lunch, I've tried all the GF things. My fave is the soul salad. Looks as good as it tastes. Love this place and GOOD NEWS ..... More
