It’s as addictive as the name suggests.
Crack Kitchen will leave you desperate for your next hit- a hit of gingerbread pikelets and locally roasted coffee that is.
On Franklin Street, Crack Kitchen is an old bank and has been given a face lift and is now the home of a brunch-lovers dream, coffee roaster and a whole heap of greenery.
The team from The Loose Caboose have out done themselves, teaming up with some big names and delivering a beautiful interior with a clean and Scandi vibe. There’s a breathtaking metal staircase, a old vault as a toilet door and ferns and plants galore from green-thumb Emma Sadie Thomson.
Crack Kitchen‘s menu is lengthy and full of savoury and sweet delights — Black Pudding, Smashed avo and even Seeded Granola with a sticky toffee apple, YUM. My friend chose “The Vault”- chorizo, bacon, mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, avocado and free range poached eggs on sourdough. I settled on “Gingerbread Pikelets” served with poached mandarin, cardamon yoghurt and chocolate almond honeycomb. Oh, and Crack have a coffee roastery on the mezzanine, meaning you a literally in coffee heaven.
For those who are on-the-go or after something a bit smaller there’s takeaway meals, tasty desserts and cakes, smoothies, fresh juices and of course, coffee. No doubt when you see the menu you’ll find yourself pulling up a pew.
You can find the Crack Kitchen at 13 Franklin Street, Adelaide.
