Shunters is a little, renovated, wood-panelled ticket booth selling coffees and take-away deserts in the large auditorium for the Adelaide Railway Station. It shares this picturesque auditorium with the Jasper's reviewed earlier. While the umbrellas outside these cafés are not going to provide any extra protection from rain and sun they do not look out of place because of the vastness of the building.

A small hot chocolate from Shunters is $3.30. All hot beverages are served in Griffith's paper coffee cups despite there being a few tables available for eat-in patrons. This is however one of the better hot chocolates you can get in a paper cup. The flavour is rich and creamy and is finished with a creamy froth and sprinkle of chocolate powder. Merkel drank this with a serve of chilli chicken from the China Bar in Station Arcade. It was fortunate he tasted the hot chocolate first because the meal was very spicy and killed his taste buds.
