The rainbow trend is here to stay and the team at KiA are totally here for it!
Sparked by a love of all things sweet and following the success of their first store on Grenfell Street in the CBD, owners Nick and Nakita had no choice but to open a second venue. Their flair for creating unique, picture-worthy treats meant Uniqorn Eats was an immediate hit for Adelaide families, wowing kids and adults alike. While the city spot has since closed fear not, because the Glenelg extravaganza is alive, kicking, and serving up awesomeness that’ll sweep you off your feet. Get ready for a sugar-packed adventure!
We recently visited the Glenelg cafe (perfectly situated near the beach) and now, we understand that sugar bliss really is a genuine phenomenon and that candy actually does bring you happiness. Sure, we’ve been dreaming of cotton candy skies and gummy bears riding unicorns ever since but hey, we’re not complaining.
The interior of this cafe is off-the-charts, transporting you to another dimension from the moment you walk through it’s doors. With it’s giant blow up sweets hanging from the ceiling and the walls plastered in an explosion of bright psychedelic paint, there’s no mistaking the FUN and quirky vibe of this family-friendly space. The atmosphere is magical and brought a smile to every face that entered. Here, life really is rainbows and uniqorns!
Picture every sinfully sweet thing that has ever existed and it’s probably on the menu at Uniqorn Eats. Over-the-top food creations and Instagram-worthy drinks that remarkably resemble a liquidised unicorn will leave you spoilt for choice – and possibly questioning your parenting choices as you watch your five-year-old indulge their inner glutton.
Servings are generous. Think, ‘Go Big or Go Home’ – meaning you can stick 2 or 3 spoons in a loaded sundae and easily share. It’s an edible extravaganza of rainbow goodness with popular items such as drizzled stacks of pancakes, photogenic masterpieces topped with sprinkles, and their signature rainbow cheese toasty.
Whipped cream? Check. Sour Straps, Fruit Loops, and marshmallows? Check, check and check. Talk about presentation!
At first, I was a little skeptical about ordering *actual food* served with a special uniqorn sauce but I was pleasantly surprised at the multi-coloured twist. Not only was it a feast for our eyes, but it was a whimsical, delightful experience for our tastebuds too. There’s also kids sized meals, vegan and gluten-free options that are just as fun, plus an online store to shop all the rainbow goodness. All are reasonably priced. From birthday parties to Uber Eats, Paint & Sip to Trivia nights, is there anything these guys can’t do?
Parents, while your kids procrastinate the irresistible menu – don’t forget to order yourself a candy-inspired cocktail because, let’s face it, you deserve it! While, they all sound mouth-wateringly delicious, I can’t recommend the Pine Lime Slice enough. *Insert drooling-face emoji*. And, if somehow you manage to resist temptation, you’re a stronger person than I, that’s for sure!
BEST cafe ever? Pretty much! But be warned, there is a 99% chance you will leave with an extreme case of sugar rush!
