A visit to the Adelaide Central Market with some out of towners meant an obligatory first stop at Lucia’s.

I’m guessing by now most South Australians are yawning and thinking we know about Lucia’s and everyone else is thinking that this is another Adelaide restaurant review, move along, nothing to see here.

And that’s kind of true. But it’s worth pointing out that whether you’re a local or a visitor, a Lucia’s first timer, or an old hand, that this tiny (and crammed and very busy, at any time of day) cafĂ© is worth visiting.

On this trip, it was coffee and panforte for my overseas guests and me, and babycino for the baby. We managed to grab a table inside, soak up a skerrick of Adelaide history and leave before the lunch time crowd hit.

Besides coffee and cake, Lucia’s offers more substantial food and you can book a table or take your luck. You won’t be having a leisurely lunch but you can always head next door and buy some Lucia’s pasta to take home with you.

And if you’re not in town, Lucia’s now has a shop in Mitcham.
