Tin Cat Café

The Tin Cat Café has been exhibiting local artists for many years. The Café is spread through a number of rooms and the garden in an old house. The furnishings are the Laminex, vinyl and polished steel of the 1950s and 60s. This is a fine dining experience in an environment filled with character.

The Adelaide Fringe exhibitor at Tin Cat Café is Juniper Darling. She has produced a series of vibrant colourful paintings featuring little girls and a fairytale world. The pictures are enhanced with cut-outs and text. These were not so much expressions of deep emotions but the reminiscences of childhood and an imaginative world.

The hot chocolate cost $3.50. It came in a glass and was topped with froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. The chocolate was tasty but your reviewer would have preferred it a bit richer.
