Spats is a great place to grab a late night dessert or for a quiet drink. The staff are always very friendly and helpful, and the range of food is great.

I went with a couple friends; this place would make a very nice date location, though. Each of the little booths was screened off for privacy. The decor was very antique, with Tiffany lamps and an adding machine. The desserts were nice. I got the green tea cheesecake, which was a bit more gelatinous than expected, and my friends both...

This is a cozy spot with nice staff. I had the raw mocha cake which was lovely and the waiter and chef were very accomodating, making me a smoothie which was not on the menu as I am vegan.

Went here once before and was a bit underwhelmed. The next time was really good. The atmosphere is very ambient and a great place to take someone if you're getting to know each other. The food wasn't too bad either. They also use fresh cream, etc, none of that "out of the can" stuff which I can't stand.

From when you walk through the door, (mind the step) you are taking a trip back with the Edwardian atmosphere. I first visited SPATS back in the late '70s ( I remember the mongoose) and it is great to see that it has maintained its decor and charm. The intimacy is set by the lighting and the layout of the...

There are very limited places in Adelaide where you can go and get a late night coffee/meal/dessert. Spats definitely holds a romantic feel, perfect if you want to take someone on a date. Or even just to catch up with a few friends. The decor is what makes this place great, the low light, the wallpaper and fixtures make the... More

It is is dark and old but is very comfy and great place on a winter's night. Their desserts are amazing with large portions and reasonable prices. We took an overseas visitor there for a visit and they were very impressed. Highly recommend. Expresso Martini was a favourite too.

One of my favorite cafes in Adelaide. Being a regular I know that I'll always get great service, food and drinks. Ask for a Mint hot chocolate, it's the best. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming and will do their best to meet any dietary requirements you may have 😊

Quiet and dark atmosphere. Felt like a little too dark. Weird seating arrangements but very different. Some booths and tables. We sat on the second level unfortunately next to a group of rude fowl mouthed group that couldn't stay of their phone doing FaceTime. We had deserts and coffee. I had the sticky date pudding. It was very good but... More

We went with another couple to have a coffee and dessert. Jo had the gold cost coffee. Nice dark chocolate coffee with cream. Adam had the chocomint coffee. Dark chocolate with mint. Both agreed they were great coffee and very soothing. We also shared some banana and walnut crepe. Camarelised banana was amazing. Great combo for crepes. Atmosphere here is... More
