“The Moseley has fast become the place to go for a drink and meal when down at Glenelg. Huge seating area both downstairs and upstairs. If you are lucky grab a seat in front of the fireplace or in the hanging chairs. Pizza's are really tasty! Also offer wide range of events like flower making, gin nights, vegan dinner. Sunday nights at The Moseley is the place to go for a dance where you will hear some of Adelaide's best DJ's. Even during the cooler months, Sunday nights turn into massive night. ”

“There are lots of options down Jetty Road where you can grab a good coffee and meal but Zest is where the locals go. Their coffee is excellent which always come with a tasty treat. Breakfast options are fantastic! Just stand out the front and the friendly staff will find a table for you. Don't feel like sitting down for a coffee? Grab a takeaway and stroll down Jetty Rd. You will still get a tasty treat with your coffee. Highly recommend Zest!”
