Eat Drink Shop Alice Springs City Guide

Thursday, April 7, 2016

I have sporadically mentioned all of these places many times over the years on this blog or on my Instagram and I thought it was about time to pull it all together on an easy to read & use map. To make the map, I worked with illustrator Angie from Angie B Studio and the result is this gorgeous map below.

This little map contains all of my favourite places in the town to eat, drink and shop. Eat Drink Shop Alice Springs - a Girl in the Pjs City Guide. If you are ever in Alice Springs, be sure to check these places out.

1. Casa Nostra - we eat here at least once a week! Lulu always orders the spaghetti bolognese, I rotate between the gnocchi with spinach, the scaloppine lemone or the kenny's special pizza, Nick rotates between the steak diablo, the puttanesca,  or the mexican calzone. And we love a large mexican pizza takeaway. Most locals have their favourite thing that they order every time. I hope you'll find yours. Be sure to order your dessert when you arrive. There is only one tray of vanilla slice and it goes quickly!

2. Exotiq Homewares - For those of us who can't just pop over to Bali whenever we like, there is Exotiq Homewares. You can wander around there and pretend you are in Bali or you can purchase their wonderful Balinese homewares and create a little bit of Bali in Alice Springs.

3. The Goods Coffee Shop - a relative newcomer to Alice Springs, the Goods Cafe has gone off with a bang. Strong coffee and great savoury snack food.

4. Ju Ju Beane - Stocking a large range of bespoke children's toys, Ju Ju Beane is the destination for kid's presents. They have recently started stocking a small range of newborn essentials and a large range of kids shoes.

5. Novita Gifts - The go to place for any gift you need, Novita stocks all things from Bohemia Crystal to Kate Spade to Cabtree & Evelyn. They also have a large selection of baby clothes, toys and essentials. You will get lost in there!

6. Red Sands Cafe - my go to for a quick lunchtime sandwich. They make the best BLT.

7. Mixed Lollies - The place to go for a fancy frock. Stocking major Australian labels like Alice McCall, Cameo, Maurie & Eve & Lulu's go to label, Rock Your Baby. Accessories a plenty with Petite Grande, House of Harlow and Tiff Manuell.

8. Epilogue - Cocktails, Tapas, Burgers and Pizza. Epilogue also has a wicked roof top area that is open Friday and Saturday nights. Plus Timber and Steel reminded me in the comments that Epilogue often have live music on said rooftop!

9. Page 27 - The go to breakfast place. Poached eggs, a huge veggie breakfast (I always add bacon), baby chinos and wicked iced coffee.

10. Loco Burrito - Finally Alice Springs is indulging my love of tex-mex. Loco Burrito has been welcomed with open arms.  Great for a quick lunch or dinner, the best thing is eating in their cute courtyard garden.

11. Monte's  - The list isn't complete without mentioning Monte's. Monte's is the go to place for a quick afterwork beer that turns into dinner that turns into the staff kicking you out at closing time. Get on it.

Alice Springs has so many awesome places to Eat Drink Shop, it was hard to narrow it down to this list. I will give an honourable mention shout out to the Coffee Horse - I love their toasted sandwiches and they also have great coffee. Is the map missing your favourite place? Add it in the comments below.

  1. Great to see more good coffee shops popping up in Alice Springs - will have to check out The Goods next time I'm back. I also hear Epilogue is supporting local live music which is great.

    My addition would have to be The Watertank. Great list Alli!

    1. Epilogue is a great supporter of live music, unfortunately pregnancy has made me too tired to attend anything late at night. Thanks for the reminder that there is a live music option for those who have the stamina :)

  2. I second Watertank and The Coffee Horse, and also love the cafe at Telegraph Station and Red Dog. The secondhand shop called Alis??? Across from Thrifty - is a quirky little shop of treasures. Honorable mention goes to the Tip Shop.

  3. Star cafe on Palm Circuit is great. Fabulous coffee and delicious food. Well worth the short trip through the gap. Also the Vietnamese on Heffernan Rd. Alis Emporium is a treasure trove.
