The Deli

The Deli at 54a George Street Thebarton is a converted old shop and a busy Adelaide Fringe venue just over the road from the Wheatsheaf Hotel. It has lounge chairs and a couple of tables inside and a shaded area out the back where most of the entertainment happens. Live shows performing there are The Deli Burlesque, Sound Cinema and Temple of Venus. The photography exhibition "The Sea of Faces" commences on March 4, 2010.

Currently being exhibited at The Deli is the work of artist Peter Andrews. This is an anarchic and diverse collection of mixed media works. The artist enjoys reusing products sticking "junk" together in different ways. Even the catalogue of artworks is produced on reused paper. If you enjoy this sort of work you will need to get to The Deli before the "Sea of Faces" exhibition is mounted.

The hot chocolate came in the same style dainty cup as was used at Coopers 1862 and the Urban Bistro. It came with a white froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The drink was weak and watery but this was almost totally excused because it came with a sliver of Lindt 70% Cocoa chocolate ensuring that your reviewer did not miss the bittersweet chocolate flavour completely. The cost was $3.50.
