I can't believe I've walked past Ebenezer Place this many times and have not gone into this little cafe. I have heard a lot of good things about Hey Jupiter. A few weeks ago I decided to go in. It is tucked away in the busy Ebenezer Place, the new place to be on Rundle Street for some cool cafes. Hey Jupiter is really a taste of France. It brings back so many memories. First of all, the colourful chairs are facing the road. They look so familiar. The decor inside is reminiscent of cafes in Paris. There is the smell of the french bakeries, the different tables and chairs and fresh flowers on each table.
As soon as we entered, we were greeted by the owner of the cafe. He was very friendly and sat us down in no time. We were offered menus that were very easy to read being on A3 paper.
The cafe itself is not very big, in fact probably just enough to fit 20 odd people inside.
Amazing service, incredible food!
I ordered two coffees, a flat white and a cappuccino and you could actually tell the difference. Some cafes make the two exactly the same, except the cappuccino would have chocolate powder on top. Traditionally, there should be no chocolate topping on top of the cappuccino, so this was how I like my coffee.
I have always enjoyed eating backed eggs, and places do present the dish differently. This one wasn't in any napoli sauces, but it had mushrooms, and bacon, which were extremely tasty. I would have like the eggs to be less cooked. Because it was put on top of the baking bowl, it was very easily to have them overcooked. The little tomato chutney on the side was extremely yummy and with the crunch bread was a complete breakfast for me. The guy that took our order must have been the owner, and the one whom was making coffee had an excellent memory, as he remembered exactly what we had ordered.
I have been back a few times now. I love the friendly service and the fresh produce. I will certainly be back to try out more items on the menu.
