Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Darlings was a typical and nice enough coffee shop, pleasant service, nice decore and quite good coffee but totally over=priced. Maybe prices for the tourist trade but over $5 per cup seemed excessive.

The wife and I both enjoyed simple poached eggs on toast with bacon. This was done exceptionally with local produce. Cooked to perfection and refreshingly served on pre-warmed plates. Coffee was also excellent. Best breaky I’ve had in some time.

Pros: - fabulous friendly and relaxed service! Just what is needed for a morning coffee - great location - fantastic opening hours - busiest little coffee shop in Tanunda tells you everything! - great range of patisserie goods Cons: - wait times for TA coffees...a tad long with the amount of staff and how busy it is… but no huge problem :) Highly recommend.More

This is a great cafe with Awesome coffee and food. Most of the staff are welcoming, helpful and happy. They give the cafe a great vibe. It's a pity about the older waitress that is very rude, abrupt and grumpy as she lets the whole...team down. We went back the next day but didn't want to be served by her.More

Staff were friendly and helped us choose some delicious gluten-free bites. We went with a frittata and apple/ blueberry muffin. Hubby enjoyed a batch brew with notes of nectarine. And he had a Portuguese tart. Worth the quick stop.

A visit to Darling's is a must if you like great coffee! While you're there try an amazing muffin from their range of home made creations that include fruits such as raspberries, blackberries, quince, fig, banana, nectarine, mandarin, apple in varying combinations - they are...as good as I have ever had. Also I had a most sublime toastie for breakfast one morning - get this: truffled mushroom, gouda with a Dijon type mayonnaise. Gorgeous!!More

This cafe is located along the main road through Tanunda and is open between 6-00 am and 12 noon seven days a week. It was the only cafe that we found open before 7-00 am on a weekday, forget about weekends. The cafe was exceptionally...busy on the four mornings that we visited and appears to have a huge takeaway trade as it only has a few tables inside and about the same number outside. They have a small hot breakfast menu which we didn't try but the breads obtained from a local baker looked superb and the pastries that we tasted were very moreish. The coffee, notwithstanding that there was a different barista each morning, was very good. Staff were very quick and efficient.More

Had breakfast at Darlings this morning and I must say, it far exceeded expectations. Un unassuming space, with a small shopfront in the Main Street of Tanunda, the team certainly delivers when it comes to service & food. My brioche bacon & eggs roll was...fantastic, the other side of the table enjoyed surprisingly large serving of local fruit loaf, toasted and served with quality butter. A couple of coffees finished off a fabulous breakfast. Highly rated.More

Needed an early morning coffee while visiting the area. This spot was busy so thought it must have been good. Purchased coffee and fresh banana muffin and both were incredible. I’d be a regular for sure if I were from the area.

Small but charming cafe with fairly limited indoor and outdoor seating and friendly staff. Just had coffee and muffins. Coffee was excellent, and the muffins (baked in house) were the best I had ever eaten. I had a dark chocolate and red berry muffin and...it was absolutely loaded with the main ingredients. Fantastic!More

Wonderful find. Coffee is a very important part of our day and Darlings made us smile. Beautiful coffee. Almond milk perfect temperature. Enjoy your coffee while watching freshly made baked goods come out of the kitchen. Heaven.

Fabulous food and coffee and good friendly service. When we arrived the cafe was extremely busy and we had to wait for a table outside as there was 6 of us. Although busy the table was cleaned and ready for us promptly and the coffee...and food arrived quicker than expected. We all enjoyed our breakfast and variety of coffees. Recommend this place for a casual breakfast and excellent coffee .More
