Le Carpe Diem to you. A bit of Paris, not surprisingly, in the cafe culture of Adelaide, this creperie and coffee shop is cozy and inviting. From the pillowed banquets in deep window seats to the crepes as big as your head, it’s all a little bit more real than any French counterpart.

Made without sugar, the crepes can be customized sweet or savory – and the savory, made of buckwheat flour, are even gluten free. Fruit toppings, melted cheese, chocolate or chicken with freshest herbs all combine for a filling brunch or snack. If you’re still hungry, housemade pastries and cakes fill a beautiful display case up front. The servers, and many of the clientele, chatter pleasantly in French making a distinctly European vibe.

Coffees are beautiful and foamy, the locale is chill, on a brick sidewalk just beside an alley leading to the busier Rundle Street. Ten thumbs up.
