This little beauty at 11 Market St opened its doors for the first time on Friday, and is already becoming the talk of the town. Market St – part bakery, part café, part deli – is the latest sibling to join the Washed Rind family Dough,Say Cheese, Smelly Cheese Shop;and friends. Tucked in the lane across from the Gouger St side of Central Market, and opposite the SA Biryani House, Market St is surprisingly light and spacious considering its alleyway home. There’s a limited dine-in menu, with today’s listing a roast root vegetable salad ($14.90) and a prosciutto, baby spinach and provolone toastie ($11) as the lunchtime options. Beyond the menu, however, is a vast selection of sandwiches, pastries and deli options. Beautiful desserts, danishes and pains au chocolat sit alongside fabulously crafted baguettes: pesto and provolone, roast chicken, roasted pumpkin and more. All the bread is made onsite in the great open kitchen behind the bar. Around the walls are magazines to buy, honeys and preserves and more ingredients to cook with at home. Two deli fridges display a selection of sophisticated dairy and smallgoods. The main attraction, in pride of place on the front counter, is Market St’s cold brew coffee. Brewed for eight to 12 hours, the single origin coffee promises sweet, not acidic, notes. The beans come from D’Angelo, and coffee is also available as a filter or in standard café varieties. Teas get special treatment at Market St, with two showcase styles – loose leaf and blooming – offering a number of unique flavours. Market St is open from 7am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. Facebook
