Thyme Cafe is a gem hidden behind the few large trees along King William Street just opposite Victoria Square. You might overlook it when you pass by but the smell of thyme should have been able to attract your sense of smell.
Adopted from the cafe's website, Thyme Cafe is operated by an award winning Chef Anelle Bosch. As the name implies, it circles around the theme of thyme, be it breakfast, lunch or even coffee. For just one year of operation, it manages to be a finalist in the Restaurant & Catering SA 2012 (Best New Venue). It shows that the potential for this cafe is expanding.

I got a $19 breakfast voucher for 2 people from Cudo one month ago. Being an one-year-old oldie in Adelaide, I decided to bring my newly found sis, Yori for an Australian-style brunch since she is new in Adelaide! And hereby, our food journey started.
We reached at around 1.30pm which was very late as the kitchen was preparing to be closed. Thank God the chef was kind enough to prepare a satisfying lunch for us. We started off with a glass of orange juice. You can opt for wine too.
Eggs Royale which I had ordered was a poached free range eggs and smoked salmon on toasted vienna topped with hollandaise sauce, capers and red onion. The toasted vienna was crispy and yet not burnt. Together with the flowing yolk from the poached egg and smoked salmon, the vienna just tasted so good. In addition, the hollandaise sauce was mild and not too acidic. I was served with a small bar of butter to be spreaded on the toasted vienna. Thumbs up for this!
