East End Laneways

{alt_text}

As an Adelaidean born and bred, when you think of the East End it’s likely that your mind immediately rushes to the bustling stretch of Rundle Street. Dig a little further and you will find a raft of tucked-away laneway gems waiting to be discovered, with new and intriguing flavours hidden behind each door.

Bounded by the historic facades of the East End Markets, Ebenezer Place and Vardon Avenue exude a relaxed village feel and are packed with cultural experiences just waiting to happen. French bistro Hey Jupiter and Afghani eatery Kutchi Deli Parwana draw a regular crowd for their highly renowned feeds and vibrant decors, while regulars flood to favourites such as Nano Café for their morning caffeine hit.

Although a perfect destination for any time of day, these leafy strips truly come to life in the afternoons and evenings. While the Belgian Beer Café Oostende stands as a beloved local beer institution, recent years have seen an outburst of on-trend watering holes for the area, with bars such as the Nola Draft Beer and Whiskey Bar and the William Bligh serving up first-class cocktails, youthful vibes and live entertainment. If wine is your choice of poison, then Vardon Avenue should be on the top of your list, with East End Cellars and Mothervine covering all the bases when it comes to the best picks of South Australian drops.

Although technically not a lane, neighbouring Union Street boasts an old-worldly charm and is the one and only home to the masters of American food-truck fare Burger Theory, the highly rated brekkies of Penny University and tantalising cocktails from the boutique haunt Mr Goodbar.
