I love this cute cafe tucked away from the main bustle of busy Jetty Road Glenelg. It's opposite the tram line and there is plenty of parking available. They serve great coffee or light lunches breakfast etc. The staff are so welcoming and remember you, which is always so nice....It's always busy but plenty of seating both inside and out... More

They make the best wraps & the iced coffee is delicious! They have hot homemade & continental foods & yummy cakes etc. The staff are friendly & it's a lovely spot to relax by the City to Glenelg tram line.

Today was the second time that I have visited Market on Maxwell in the last week. I have just moved into the area and was pretty happy there was a cafe so close.

This cafe was started by a guy who had a niche idea about 12 years ago, a market style cafe. It worked and had a bit of a cult following. Since then it has been sold at least twice and the current owners do not have the same passion as the original owner. Market on Maxwell has sooo much potential... More

Nice atmosphere with good service and friendly staff. Enjoyed our dining. The locals seem to dig it. Will go back for sure.

This family-run gem is a favourite of locals in Glenelg East. It's situated in a classic, Adelaide corner-shop building, alongside the Glenelg-Adelaide tram line. The main window has a lovely art deco swoop to it. The interior isn't going to win any design awards but has warm wooden floor boards and galvanised iron features on the counter. They do a... More
