Planning a leisurely brunch with the family before tackling the bustling aisles of Rundle Mall for yet another round of school shoe shopping? Overdue a cosy rendezvous with your bestie or perhaps you just want an aesthetically pleasing spot to read a book and whittle away a few hours? Peter Rabbit welcomes you with open arms.

Nestled in Adelaide’s vibrant west end precinct, Peter Rabbit Cafe on Hindley Street is an quaint little oasis offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. If you’re in search of a whimsical setting paired with delicious cuisine, look no further. Peter Rabbit Cafe. Even the name is ridiculously cute.

Step into Peter Rabbit and you’ll be greeted by the scent of freshly brewed coffee and the buzz of conversation. The ambiance is lively yet comfortable, inviting you to sit back, relax, and indulge in some trendy dishes that are sure to please your taste buds. Take your pick of seating options – whether you choose to dine on the undercover deck, bask in the sunshine amidst the umbrella-peppered lush garden, or cosy up inside the intimate cafe, wherever you choose to settle, you’re in for a treat.

While you scour the menu, the kids can keep an eye out for all the rabbit statues scattered throughout the cafe grounds – it might just keep them entertained long enough for you order in peace. Or, grab them a babyccino and enjoy a coffee before you eat. The coffee alone is worth a visit.

At Peter Rabbit’s Garden Cafe, their dedication to seasonal produce shines through, and we had the pleasure of experiencing it firsthand during our visit. From trendy dishes to wholesome yet flavourful offerings, every bite spoke volumes about their commitment to serving exceptional food. Their menu, available all day for breakfast and lunch, truly caters to every taste, including a range of dietary requirements.

For the little ones, Peter Rabbit’s Garden Cafe offers a delightful kids’ menu. While not extensive, with only three options; Eggs on ToastFrench Toast, and Fries – each dish is a hit with young diners. We ordered one of each for our three kids, and the scrambled eggs were some of the fluffiest we’ve seen. In fact, our kids enjoyed them so much that they exclaimed, “Can we come here every morning?” Additionally, there’s nothing stopping you from ordering off the regular menu, which is equally amazing.

As for our meal, we couldn’t resist ordering a classic favourite – the Poached Eggs on Sourdough, accompanied by a sweet pineapple relish for a modern twist. Adding a side of smoked bacon and charred greens may have been indulgent, but how could we resist? Another standout dish was Peter’s Pot Plant – a heavenly concoction of Wattleseed Kangaroo Island overnight oats, chia, nashi pear, coconut yogurt, and house-made granola. The interplay of textures and flavours was divine, leaving us feeling both satisfied and energised for the day ahead. The Smashed Avocado was equally delightful, taken to new heights with peas, pickled shallots, preserved lemon dressing, and chilli oil. And to top it all off, their banana smoothie was oh my gosh… absolutely heavenly.

As for practicalities, parking is available nearby at Wilson Parking, or you can try your luck finding a free spot on the street. While space for prams may be limited, highchairs are readily available, and there’s even a convenient change table in the bathroom.

Just be warned: with Peter Rabbit’s fantastic reputation, it can get super busy so we suggest booking a table. It’s also very popular with dog owners so there’s always a friendly four-legged friend to wag a tail at the kids too.

With its whimsical charm, delectable cuisine, and friendly atmosphere, it’s no wonder this hidden gem has captured the hearts of many families. Hop on over and see for yourself—trust us, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Find it at: George Street, Marion The City of Marion have opened up yet another fabulous playground (they are really setting the standard aren't they), this time a spacious playground at George Street. With an in-ground trampoline, swing, sandpit, water pump and 2 historical-themed cubby houses, including a village store and a workers cottage, this one is really cool. There’s also a miniature fire pole, slide and logs to jump on and an upgraded 3-on-3 basketball and netball court. There's plenty of space (the oval and footy goals are just fantastic) for your doggo to run around, as well as a sheltered BBQ area. Oh and did we mention there are toilets? Because there are! We really enjoyed this one and there was plenty for our older boys to climb and swing around on, whilst also offering enough to keep the young ones entertained.
