Seriously this is the most disgusting coffee I have ever ever tasted even after a reorder. Burt with coffee grinds in it. The view is nice.

Really disappointed as the location is great right on the water. Were seated indoors but offered a 10% discount if we ordered online. This wasn’t that easy to as had to create account etc and do a second Covid checkin. All drinks and syrups, sugar...etc were in disposable containers so not interested in reducing waste or serving tea in a real cup. Coffee tasted awful and food was really bland. A lot of tinned or packaged food used not homemade but charging homemade prices. Will not be going again. Will find somewhere that takes pride in producing a great tea and coffee not just pumping out food like a Maccas.More

Clean venue. Friendly staff. Full COVID safe venue allowing customers to view menu on their own phone, place the order and pay. If this is not your thing the waitresses will provide table service. My son and I had a serve of bacon and eggs...on pancakes with hollondaise sauce, two stack pancake with maple syrup and whipped butter and a milkshake. Quick service and ample serve size to feel satisfied. Support the locals!More

We decided to try out the Port Adelaide Pancake Kitchen. We were greeted most pleasantly by a lady staff member and shown to our table. The decor and layout is certainly different to the PK in the City which is probably a good thing. I...see there have been some very good reviews since it opened but that was not our experience. We found the pancakes to be dry, doughy, heavy with no flavour other than the chosen garnishing. We simply could not finish them. It all seemed a tad expensive as well. 2 serves of pancakes with a cup of tea and coffee cost $46. At 3am this morning I was awake and felt like I had a lump of lead in my stomach. The cup of tea was tepid at best. I suspect it had been made too early and left sitting because it had brewed OK but barely warm. Perhaps we just visited on an off night as our experience is at odds with many others. I hope the place does well and maybe we will give it another try sometime to see how it compares to our first visit.More

Lovely staff, easy online low-contact ordering system that we really appreciated, a great view when sitting outdoors, a fun children's menu and yummy food. We'll definitely revisit.

We came up to the Port for a few days break away and decided to have breakfast at this cafe. The eggs benedict were great.

I’d love to leave a review for this place but I cannot. Sign on the door stated in very large font that they were open until 4pm on Sundays, the day we visited. We were there at 3.30pm and only wanted coffee, but were told,...no, sorry, we are closed now.More

Came here for lunch and a coffee on Friday afternoon with a small group of friends. Absolutely fantastic meals and the staff were lovely. Be aware before you go that meals is currently done via the phone app due to covid.
