Mt. Lofty Summit Reviews & Ratings
Such a beautiful place!!! After looking at the beautiful City of Adelaide we decided to stop and order meals and drinks in the Summit Cafe for a late lunch. Absolutely beautifully prepared Chicken Burgers, The Summit Burger is a must and the most wonderfully cooked Fish and Chips were excellent. Coffee was lovely and the views afterwards were absolutely amazing!!! A must visit for great food and drinks!
The best view in Adelaide! An awesome function centre with great tasting food and drinks. Lots of birdlife to be spotted very nearby if you are 'still and quiet'. Blue Wrens are in abundance and can often be quite cheeky (keep your camera at the ready) The atmosphere is quite exciting and yet laid back. The views and all the happy people / tourists are proof of this location and cafe to be of a very high quality standard. Mt Lofty Summit... a great SA Icon 😉 (5 star quality).
Nice staff and beautiful outlook. Let down by the parking cost although this is outside the cafe owner's responsibility. We ordered hot drinks, 2 chocolates and cafe latte which were served lukewarm. Asked that the "hot" chocolate drinks be heated. This request was kindly accepted. However, the drinks returned no warmer. Sigh... We drank up and left...
Not cheap but quite classy. Trying to serve two distinct needs: hikers & visitors needing refreshment; diners wanting a good meal with a view. It's better at latter than former. White tablecloth service & menu quite good. Not noisy & on a clear day view is incomparable, geography at a glance.
Good range of food and drinks. Indoor and outdoor dining with terrific views. Overall good but a bit expensive.
