Revival Cafe Adelaide

Good coffee, good smiles and a kitchen that loves to try new things.

Aa good cup of coffee is meant to put a spring in your step. But in a certain corner of Adelaide, that ethos is taken slightly further. The aptly named Revival Cafe seeks to be a place that makes your day. From its slogan ('Be the reason someone smiles today') to its range of inventive latte art to its self-proclaimed 'good vibes' philosophy, everything at Revival is done to bring a little more light into the world. Of course, this doesn't mean much if the coffee's no good — but that's certainly not a concern here.

In fact, in 2023, Revival was named Toby's Estate Local Legend for South Australia — it's no surprise, given the people of Blakeview queue for a table on weekends. The regular coffee is top-notch, but there's also a rotating cast of special guest flavours, with blueberry crumble and crème brûlée featured on the menu, among others.

Blakeview is an up-and-coming suburb with a young population (two-thirds of inhabitants are aged under 40), so Revival is precisely the cafe that the area needs. It's a welcoming small business that supports local charities, provides a friendly atmosphere and does an absolutely killer cup of coffee.
