Adelaide Café Clement + Herron Shines

In Australian city guide Broadsheet’s coverage of this year’s café openings, “avocado” wasn’t mentioned anywhere near as much as in previous years. And that’s a good thing. Operators are straying from the cookie-cutter-cafe formula. Like the New Zealand-owned Clement + Herron, set up by Sam Ferguson and Nadia Carrington in Adelaide.

“On a strip better known for its snack bars and roast-chicken and kebab shops, this fresh-faced Findon café stands out,” according to the publication.

“Owners Ferguson and Carrington moved to Adelaide after a stint in Melbourne and brought a little minimalism to the neighbourhood. Go for the bagels (from The Beigelry) stuffed with barbeque bacon, house-made pastrami or Harris Smokehouse salmon from Hahndorf, plus an evolving line-up of larger dishes. Sourdough and some seriously good-looking pies are made in-house.”
