Espresso Room Café
This is an innocuously named Café near the West end of North Terrace adjoining the City West campus of the University of South Australia. This should not be confused with 227 Espresso Café near the other end of North Terrace. It used to be an old post office and is a small well furnished stone buiding. There are different eating areas at the front, in the garden out the back and a couple of rooms inside.
Espresso Room Café does an excellent dark chocolate flavour hot chocolate. It is served in a ceramic cup and saucer. It is topped with a brown froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. This is a good option for those who want to avoid the paper cups of the University cafes. The hot chocolate is also superior to that of most other Adelaide cafes. The cost was $3.80.
