Caffe Primo, Blackwood
Caffe Primo outlets at Unley and the City have disappeared but the on at Blackwood is still going strong. The Blackwood Caffé Primo provides a picturesque location in the hills and good breakfasts on a Sunday. It is exhibiting two contrasting artists for the SALA Festival 2012 in an exhibition called Variations 2. Both artists provided two paintings showing a variation on a theme.
The hot chocolate came in a glass and saucer with a marshmallow. There were chocolate syrup designs on the inside of the glass but this did not overly sweeten the drink. It was topped with brown froth and a line of chocolate powder. The taste was a good, rich milk chocolate flavour.
