Finally, a shopping centre that’s actually good for you. Welcome to North Adelaide Village.
If you haven’t been in a while, it’s time to rediscover this old favourite and suss out the newbies on the block. So, pull up your leggings and let’s do a circuit of the centre.
With over 270,000 members Australia wide, Goodlife trainers want every Adelady to lead a more active lifestyle. Whether it’s a daily high-intensity gym workout, a walk to school pick-up or allowing 20 minutes each day to just breathe — they know everyone’s gym goals are different and they want to support whatever yours may be. With a great offering of classes and top-of-the-range equipment, they’re ready to help you live your best life.
If 2020 was a food, this would be it. Wholesome goodness served in the simplest of vessels. Hot smoked salmon, chicken curry, braised lamb, tuna poke, cabbage roll — whatever tickles your fancy, you can make up your perfect bowl to go or to devour immediately. Dairy-free, gluten-free and vegan options available.
Taking over Café Paesano’s prime position, Pippo is the newcomer to the Centre and welcomes families from afar. This kid-friendly café serves up fresh, seasonal produce packed full of flavour, as well as house-made pastries and A-grade coffee all day long. Owners James and Danielle say their new restaurant is for everyone. “It’s for parents who can’t be bothered cooking, or those just wanting a special-occasion meal.” Open for dinner, seven days a week, 7pm until late.
To those who are wanting organic food options, Romeo’s Organic is dedicated to providing environmentally-friendly products that help to care for both our planet and our health. The wonderful Romeo’s team is always there to give advice on everything from food and nutrition to personal products, natural medicine and pet care. They even have a naturopathic clinic on site.
You’ll step out of this beauty salon feeling like the fairest one of all. You can unwind with a massage, have your makeup done by a professional makeup artist, get weekend ready with a tan and a Brazilian wax (they go hand in hand) or treat yourself to a laser hair removal session… or 10. They also offer a long list of facials, like microdermabrasion, skin needling and even vampire facials.
Surrounded by fresh fruit, veggies and flowers, this 30-years-young classic North Adelaide hotspot is always reinventing itself, with raw treats, vegan-friendly options and soul-warming meals. And their skinny chai lattes are ace.
