Adelaide’s bohemian Bar 9 sprung up a few years ago on the long bent elbow of Glen Osmond Road… which eventually becomes the road to Melbourne. That branch closed in 2016, but the newer downtown Bar 9 Central – in the food precinct below David Jones – perpetuates the original café’s very Melburnian ethos: communal tables, bewhiskered baristas and serious coffee. The mushroom ragù on sourdough with poached eggs, watercress and truffled honey is a steadfast recuperator at any time of day, best consumed with a couple of cups of the seasonal ‘Black Label’ house brew. Urban bean fiends can’t get enough.
