Café Station, Catholic Diocesan Centre

The Catholic Diocesan Centre is at 39 Wakefield Street Adelaide. To get to Café Station you go up the Ramp. The Café is to the right as you go up into the centre. Some of the signage can be seen from the street. There is no seating inside the café but a number of tables are in a pleasant location outside the café, overlooking a garden in the carpark level below. Sandwiches and snacks are available from the Café.

The naming of this café and its connection to Catholicism is obscure. Perhaps one of the Stations of the Cross was a café where Jesus slipped in for quick cappuccino on his way to the crucifiction.

The hot chocolate was served in a white ceramic Vittoria cup; One of those with the logo on the inside drinker-facing position. It was finished with plenty of froth and a liberal sprinkling of chocolate powder. The flavour was a rich, creamy milk chocolate flavour and the cost was only three dollars.
