Currently I’m doing 3 posts per week but will be cutting back a bit to at least 1 post per week, sorry guys. Need to crank up the study mode for a placement test for an exchange in Japan. Good news for you though because you can see food from Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea Will be back in sweet little old Adelaide by early – mid Feb 2013, so far awayyyyy. Anyhoo back to the post!
Famous for their coffees which I haven’t tried yet as I automatically became a magnet to the dessert cabinet once I stepped in. Felici offers a variety of desserts – macarons, slices of cakes, tarts and cake pops. To be honest I think I am a bad judge for coffee since I like everything sweet, oh the woes of having a giant sweet tooth.

The macarons here are hugeee, although costing about $4.20 each you get a pretty big macaron, approx 5cm diameter. One of the few macaron places I would recommend in Adelaide, tasted really nyommy. The picture below is a raspberry macaron with a sweet buttercream filling on the outside followed by a raspberry jelly/jam in the middle. My favourite flavour is the salted caramel but for some reason everytime I try to buy it it’s never available anymore. The salted caramel macaron was a bit like the raspberry one where outside it was a buttercream, then followed by a salted caramel filling. I’ve only had it once and I want more so if you see some random person peeking in from the side street outside it is probably me checking if there are any salted caramels available
[Edit 25/9/12] – I managed to get a hold of the salted caramel last night but it was very different to the one I had initially. Poorly presented with random red and blue food colour smudges on it, hollow shells and no salted caramel punch. It just had a thin salted caramel layer smeared on with the buttercream wedged in the middle. I take back my recommendation for a macaron here, nothing to rave about :/
The mocha cake has a layer of coffee flavoured cream and custard, layered with puff pastry. Quite delicious and would go well with a coffee.
Oh this Tea Drop tea set was so cute with it’s little tray and teapot. I love the Tea Drop honeymelon green tea, sweet and refreshing where it tastes a bit like the sencha sensation tea from T2.

Very reasonably priced and a lovely place that is always buzzing. I think we got 3 drinks and 3 desserts for around $25. Pretty good value with everyone loving what they got, how can I not recommend it?
