A big-hearted little bakery is doing good things in Black Forest
There’s no denying it, South Road is awful. Adelaide’s main southern exit is polluted, noisy, spangled with crass signage and clogged with semi-trailers. But wait… what’s this? The Village Bakery, hanging off the edge of inner-burb Black Forest, is a shining beacon of quality and pleasure, turning out the best pies this side of town. Nimble black-clad staff are quick on the coffee machine and quicker with a smile. Also terrific are vanilla slices, log cakes, lemon meringue pies and quiches. Eat at the long window seat (watch the trucks) or take away. Chai lattes (hot or iced) are further evidence of the ongoing gentrification of Adelaide’s inner southern zones.
