162 Goodwood Rd, Goodwood, opposite the Capri
Open 8pm until late Wed-Sun
The trendiest new hang out for stingy students south of the city is not on King William Rd or Unley Rd, but in a small, unassuming building on nearby “Goody Rd”, just opposite the Capri cinema.
Specialising in cheap gourmet desserts, rich with seasonal and local produce, and all somehow made without eggs, the appropriately named Eggless Dessert Café almost always attracts a line of people down the footpath, waiting for a spare table.
It’s no wonder, with items such as avocado, coconut and cocoa snap sundae, green tea and chocolate tiramisu, sweet lemon and brown sugared apples with caramel ice cream, orange and vanilla bean panna cotta, and my personal favourite, the spiced apple cake, all available for around $8.
And the portion sizes are very generous, with most items offered as vegan or gluten-free. Is your mouth watering yet?
Eggless also offer up a swathe of exotic coffees, teas and sweet drinks, and a selection of Asian desserts for those with more adventurous tastes.
But this small, family-owned and operated business hasn’t stopped there – the menu changes entirely each month, so before long expect to learn the names and faces of all the staff.
