Our cafe has been affectionately described as “a coffee nerds shed” and this is something that sits with us very well.
Bar 9 is basically a grassroots espresso bar situated in the city fringe suburb of Parkside, South Australia. Six years in the making, we set about opening Bar 9 with one goal in mind, quality. We’ve done everything in our power to provide you with only the best; if we aren’t proud to serve it, we simply won’t supply it at all. Our promise to you is a quality focused cafe designed to showcase only the very best that specialty coffee has to offer.
Our coffee is supplied by Ethical and quality driven roaster, Five Senses Coffee. We also roast a few singles on site and retail the lot out of our sister site Just Brewed, located adjacent to us.
Sourced from a local, boutique farm in the Lobethal in the Adelaide hills, we proudly use a fantastic, un-homogenized milk from Tweedvale Dairy. It’s full bodied and creamy flavour is best described as the sort of milk your grandma’s grandma used to enjoy. Minimal processing and cows reared with love (not $$ in mind) lead to a greatly superior product that is evident from the first sip.
All of our pastries are crafted by pastry chefs that are as passionate about their cakes as we are about our coffee. No excessive emulsifiers, gums and artificial flavours. Our cakes are made locally from whole ingredients. What this means for you is increased quality, increased flavour, and above all, piece of mind that behind every cake and pastry, a passionate individual has poured their talent and love into it. Nothing mass produced here!
