When the cold of winter sets in, there’s nothing like cider to warm your bones and put a little fire in your belly. Here are the best places to find it in Adelaide.
We’ll begin at a bustling little spot called Two Sisters, where the service is friendly and the food is always amazing. There’s a lot to love at this bar/restaurant, and the drinks list is no exception. There’s plenty of beer and wine to choose from, as well as the Sidewood apple cider. It’s a premium natural cider, crafted nearby from the fruit of the Adelaide Hills themselves. How’s that for local pride?

From the stuffed bookshelves to the old-timey furniture to the vinyl records framing a doorway, Thrift Shop really does live up to its name. It’s so well tucked away that it’s very easy to miss, but that just makes it all the more special to those in the know. Speaking of special, try the Barossa Valley Cider Co squashed pear cider. It’s creamy and tangy, with just the right amount of sweet.

There’s nowhere hipper than Brooklyn, and BRKLYN is a slice of that NYC cool right here in Adelaide. The venue is a cross between a hip underground bar, a barber shop, a sandwich deli and a live music venue, and it’s definitely a must-visit. While you’re there, order up the Adelaide Hills apple and ginger cider. As spicy as it is refreshing.
“What a great space! I love the delicatessen and the barber. The menu looked very inviting but we were after drinks on this occasion. My Gimlet was delicious, in fact it was too delicious…” – 4chillis
A friendly bar/brewery, Big Shed Brewing is a wonderful choice for a hearty bite and a drink or two (or three). Grab yourself a massive burger and some “dirty” fries, and wash it all down with a big mug of Cherry Popper. That’s a kind of sparkling cider made with apple and cherry, and it’s absolutely marvellous stuff. Moreish like you wouldn’t believe!

La Moka is a place of many talents, falling somewhere between a bar, a cafe and a bakery. The coffee’s great, the cakes are divine, and the fellas here certainly know a thing or two about mixing a quality drink. For example, why not order the mulled wine with orange peel and spices? It may not be cider, but it’s close (and delicious) enough – so we’ll allow it!
“So the word on the streets of Adelaide was that La Moka do the best coffee’s in town. Well, I mean I’ve heard that from a couple of people I know anyways so decided to give it a try! So what do I think… yes it was a pretty darn good coffee… the best, well I’m not a coffee connoisseur but it was a well-made coffee indeed!!” – xbabydollx
