Where to get a pie floater in Adelaide

Places for where to get a pie floater in Adelaide are mentioned here. The humble Adelaide pie floater may not appear all that appetising to some people. However, for others it is something different to eat on a cold winter’s night. There used to be a pie cart on North Terrace but that was moved on and ended up in Norwood for a while. So tourists often ask locals these days, and they have asked me, where you can get a pie floater in Adelaide. Here are a few options because they are still around, although they are not quite the same as they used to be in the old pie cart apparently (I actually have not eaten one I must admit).

Although you can buy a pie floater in some places interstate, they are few and far in between. This dish is more known here in South Australia, especially in Adelaide. Most people bolt for Norwood when they want one. They go to Enjoy Cafe Bakery which is open 24 hours a day at 112 The Parade. I did some reading around a bit to find out other locations to buy one from and here are some places that sell them.

The next two options that people go to are O’Connell St Bakery in North Adelaide and Cafe de Vilis at 2/14 Manchester St, Mile End. There may be a few other places that I did not read about so if you know of any then please comment below.

The original pie cart may very well be back in the next few years after some of Adelaide’s usual red tape and backwardness is sorted out first, plus the money side of things. Follow the The Pie Cart web site for any news that may pop up there from time to time.

    On a sort of related topic, in ‘The City’ rag last week, a columnist lamented the fact that Adelaide lacks “late night joints serving up bacon sandwiches, coffee and pancakes, without the frills and for cheap prices”. He wants American diners here. I wonder if he has heard of the Pancake Kitchen, open 24/7 if he really wants that late on a Saturday night? What about the 24 hour bakery in North Adelaide, Mile End and Norwood? There are a couple of non junk food eateries open for workers burning the midnight oil over the weekend you know?

      What about a pie floter cart at the city end of the new torrens river walking bridge.

        That’s exactly where they should have one. Until we rid this state of the absurd amount of red tape it will never happen!
