Hiding in the eastern suburbs are some of the best foodie experiences you could ask for.
If you’re after some bloomin’ good food, do we have the tour for you! The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is offering guests the opportunity to join its Food Secrets Tours to discover the treats the burbs have to offer.
The Food Secrets Tours were initially created to showcase the delicious food manufacturers in both Glynde and Stepney, and have now expanded to showcase businesses outside these suburbs. They continue to highlight those much-loved businesses that sit just off the main streets, creating the amazing South Australian products often stocked in stores and supermarkets around our state and Australia. We betcha didn’t know half of these were made right here in our backyard!

Hop on a bus for your Food Secrets Tour — but you better get booking, as tours only run once a month between February and November and sell out fast. Each tour visits: coffee, sweet treat, a tipple at an Eastside Wine & Ale Trail venue (see page 75), and a delicious lunch. These stops offer tastings or samples, and discounts on purchases. You’ll walk away with a much greater appreciation of SA produce, a full belly, and a goodie bag!
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is home to endless food legends. Here’s a tasting plate of some of the businesses that you could be experiencing firsthand:
Rio Coffee/Goodies + Grains — Double the goodies, double the fun! Pick up some Rio Coffee Beans to enjoy alongside your Goodies + Grains Muesli.
1645 Coffee Roasters — Feel the love that this family-run business pours into their specialty coffee roasting methods.
Cafetal Coffee Co. — Coffee specialists and pioneers of fair and direct trade of specialty Colombian coffee, right here in South Australia.
