Crema on Jetty, Glenelg

date of visit: Friday 1 June 2012

Another trip to Glenelg and another opportunity to try somewhere different for a coffee and cake. I was tempted by Tasca Viva‘s churros for $10 but we walked passed and hit Crema. The bonus here was that there was plenty of space – a Friday afternoon at the beginning of winter meant that there were only a few other patrons and we were able to nab the sofas in the front window.

There was a reasonable selection of cakes from which to choose and there was a bit of umming and aahing, especially while we established whether or not the giant slice of Toblerone mousse cake was one portion or two. It was one (for $5.50) so we decided to split it. Added to that were some small, plain(ish) biscuits and babycino (for the baby) and two cafe lattes. That all came to just under $15.

Splitting the cake turned out to be a sage decision because even then we couldn’t finish it (in the picture it has been already started on) and we were impressed that the weak cafe latte came out weak. You would be surprised at how many places are apparently incapable of making a weak coffee. The cake was really good too – very rich and sweet and absolutely not good for you at all.

Service was a bit iffy – while the waitress was affable enough she was also a bit distracted and had to be reminded to bring out the biscuits. I’d be interested to see if there is a bit more focus when the restaurant is busier …

That said – an enjoyable cafĂ© experience. Not artisan or gourmet, perhaps, but it ticked the boxes at a sensible price.

  1. we attended your restaurant in September with a groupon voucher which was a gift, I have to say that it was the worst meal I have ever experienced in Glenelg, and we eat there regularly. The dips were gritty and tasteless, apparently my husband’s pasta was very nice but after waiting for 45 minutes after he finished his pasta we asked about the pizza I had ordered, the pizza had not been started however we were credited for one drink.
    The staff had absolutely no idea what they were doing with the only exception being an older woman behind the counter that appeared quite frustrated by everyone else s stupidity,. Other guests that night were experiencing the same thing, Would I recommend this restaurant to others? hell no, I will be telling everyone of my experience. Good luck with your business, there are too many other good places to eat on Jetty Road, charging the same amount and their meals are great and staff know what they are doing.
    I don’t believe I will get a response, but I just wanted to let you know that beyond doubt this was the worst experience in a very long time.
