Judging by the pedigree of the staff and the serious coffee tech machinery on display, you would have to think, and rightly so, that Bar Nine is the number one place in Adelaide for coffee connoiseurs to get their daily fix. Champion barista Ian Callahan commands Adelaide's first Synesso Cyncra along with the syphons, Vietnamese coffee, cold brew drip, French press, ceramic drip, and espresso from a Rancilio Z9 lever piston machine. Ian is passionate about his craft and willing to share his tips for the perfectly crafted coffee to anyone interested. A small selection of food is available to accompany the liquid gold.
Breakfast, brunch or coffee, Bar 9 would have to be the best. The seating configurations are excellent for singles, couples or groups. Even though this Cafe is very busy, the service is excellent, the staff are very obliging and friendly. We chose for our breakfast, from a well thought out menu. Bacon and scrambled eggs, the meal was well prepared, with very little delay. While we enjoyed a very smooth coffee, we read the papers that are provided and I did this review on their free WiFi. It is quite understandable why this place is so busy, like us many customers have become regulars. The ambience is good with light music in the background, with the buzz of conversation. If we lived in this area we would be very regular visitors also.
