Loveon Café

A local favourite packing a flavoursome punch

Nestled in the back streets of Mile End, you will find this quaint and colourful local gem, Loveon Café. Sure to get your tongues wagging and taste buds buzzing, Loveon offers so much more than deliciously put together meals and freshly squeezed juices.

Owner, Rasheed, moved to Adelaide from Bangladesh almost 15 years ago, bringing with him his passion and unique flair for cooking… so it is no surprise that each exotic dish has its own personal touch!

The Lowdown

Open daily – except Tuesdays – from 7am through to 4pm, the menu oozes culture and tradition inspired by every corner of the world and offers authentic, healthy and deliciously unique cuisines. Loveon will have you quickly spreading the word, whilst trying your best to describe the not-so-stock-standard menu choices to your friends.

That Menu…

From Egyptian fried falafel, Afghan lamb kebab and the Mediterranean veggie stack, there is certainly something for everyone. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options are also available, or something for the sweet food enthusiasts such as the freshly baked goods or our personal favourite, the buttermilk pancakes served with fresh fruit and vanilla ice cream (your taste buds will thank you). Have a function or event coming up? Yep, they cater too!

It is easy to immerse yourself in the colourful and inspired décor, or take a seat outside in the sun with the pooch. No matter where you take a seat, one thing is always for certain, the friendly service.

The Fit Out

From the vibrant mosaic tiles on the front counters to the bright ceiling and children’s drawings on the wall, this café is a breath of fresh air with a strong essence of culture and community. Can’t afford that trip overseas? Just like your very own genie in a bottle (of freshly squeezed watermelon juice), Loveon will send your taste buds around the world and back again… all within your lunch break!

With a mixed crowd of locals, newbies and repeat customers, it goes to show that good old-fashioned friendly service and a unique menu is what the people want. Sunday smashed avo on toast? No thanks, we’re off to Morocco for some spicy vegan fritters!
