The busy seaside strip is home to quaint cafés, long lunch destinations and cocktail bars alongside boutique stores and holistic havens. Glenelg’s Jetty Road is the one-stop destination for a great day out.
9am: Caffeine Fix
Coffee in the morning is a must. It’s even better when a big breakfast accompanies it. Devour smashed avocado at Daily Fixx or visit the art-covered Zest Café for bagels or breakfast. After a quick bite? Check out Superette for buttery almond croissants, custard-filled pastries and takeaway coffee.
1pm: A Long Lunch @ Fourth
Meet at Fourth for a long lunch with your girlfriends. Its modern fit-out –with soft overhanging lights, a sleek bar and splashes of sea foam blue– make for a luxe afternoon. Lunch on a barramundi fillet with charred broccoli, crispy squid salad, or risotto funghi sprinkled with porcini salt.
5pm: Cocktails @ Terra & Sol
Treat yourself to sunset drinks at Terra & Sol. The bar and restaurant shake and stir SA spirits through its cocktails. Sip on cappuccino martinis, a passionfruit margarita or sloe gin sour. Perch at the street-side bar, cocktail in hand, and watch the world go by.
7pm: Dinner @ Capriccio
Indulge in authentic Italian fare at Capriccio. The exposed brick restaurant oozes warmth and rustic charm. Graze on arancini balls and unsmoked meats, savour handmade pasta and enjoy fine cuts of steak. With over 30 years in business, Capriccio knows that not shying away from tradition is a good thing.
