    Was recommended to me, but found that the food was not up to standard and not worth the $ paid, there was a lot of mushrooms on the breakfast platter but little anything else ... would not recommend.

    Our family went for breakfast for Mothers Day, and the café is central to Adelaide. We all thought the menu (which may have been set for Mothers Day) was very limited, and would have preferred more of a selection ,i.e. Eggs Benedict.

    Mothers day - great food however service was quite poor. No one took our food order after 40 minutes and we had to get service staffs attention to place our order. The food then took 40 minutes later to arrive but was worth the wait. Really good coffee at this establishment.

    What a treat it was to find The Messy Tomato on our recent trip to Adelaide. We booked based on The Fork reviews and were not disappointed. Friendly, warm welcome, attentive but non-intrusive service throughout and the breakfast menu is just delicious. I had the Messy Omelette, my companions had other choices and everything was beautifully cooked. Service was fast even though it was quite busy. Only disappointment is that this place is not in our home city! We will return and have told all our Adelaide friends this is a must visit. Thanks for a great addition to our minibreak.

    Great food, great experience. Beautiful presentation. We shared a breakfast platter for two and was really enough food for 3 hungry people. Can't wait to try their new venture at Newton

    Unexpected chance for lunch with my partner-an excellent choice. We arrived early and elected to enjoy chatting over glass of wine before ordering-there were no problems with this and staff were extremely attentive. Gorgeous sunny day for the outdoor tables but we elected to sit indoors, able to watch the (small) kitchen action. We had heard good reviews from friends who had brunched here - we were not disappointed.

    We had the breakfast platter and the presentation was amazing! The food was all delicious and plentiful for myself and my husband. The coffees were great too. We loved the casual and relaxed ambience, and Tony and his staff were very welcoming and friendly. We would definitely recommend Messy Tomato!
