Great staff, great food and great coffee makes Fiefys Specialty Cafe a must visit in Adelaide.
If your looking for a great coffee in the heart of Adelaide city then head over to:
Fiefys Specialty Cafe

Looks like a another must-see venue on the CS Adelaide itinerary and Andy has ensured that we are unlikely to miss it if we find ourselves on Pirie St.
You had a tough* group of visitors at your opening (?) but judging by the photo in Reply #5 Im not sure who was the toughest judge.* :)
I have to say the coffee is very nice 8-) Lovely to meet Fiefy too.
It is tucked away though - so for locals: it is behind the town hall - in the breezeway between the town hall and the council building.
Great to have a proper coffee place in the CBD!
Thank you very much! ;)Originally Posted by 212B3E2929263234470 link=1297597938/4#4 date=1299100608
If you are in Adelaide next, it would be my pleasure to make you a cuppa! :P
Thanks for droppig in Kavin! Glad to hear that you enjoyed the coffee... 8-)Originally Posted by 1514135E0 link=1297597938/5#5 date=1299139911
You did well to find us; a little hole in the wall!... ;DOriginally Posted by 1514135E0 link=1297597938/5#5 date=1299139911
Ive been half a dozen times by now....nice coffee, very friendly staff, but VERY windy....sad to say, but I feel the location will be terrible in winter, and theres is very limited seating out of the wind.
Popped in for a coffee on Friday. I must say I was very pleased with not only the coffee but Fiefy and her staff. It was no drama for her to explain the coffee I was drinking and have a chat in general.
Anyone with a few spare minutes whilst in the Adelaide CBD would not be disappointed if they were to pay a visit.
Thank you for coming in and glad to hear that you enjoy the experience with us. Looking forward to seeing you again.Originally Posted by 2431707670450 link=1297597938/9#9 date=1299477092
Thanks for coming in regularly and glad you like the coffee and our service! ;DOriginally Posted by 27302323450 link=1297597938/8#8 date=1299385295
You are right...it will be very windy during the winter. We are looking for wind barrier and hope it will help! ::)
Our customer are mostly take away but we will try our best to accommodate our dine in! ;)
See you again soon, 8-)
I went and had a coffee there today with a friend, who said afterwards she was glad I made her walk past so many other cafes to go to Fiefys.
Very good coffee, well done I enjoyed it a lot.
Cheers for the feedback! :) Look forward to seeing you again! 8-)Originally Posted by 6E3B28335D0 link=1297597938/11#11 date=1300773258
I had my initial drop-in at Fiefys today to pick up my BeanBay order.
All I can say is if you are in the area and dont visit you will be REALLY MISSING OUT.
Not only did I have two of the best ristrettos ever (one of each of Fiefys special blends), but a great conversation with Fiefy and the rest of the staff.
Thanks Greg for dropping in! It was great to see you too and happy to hear that you like our blends. :D Hope to see and chat more next time! 8-)Originally Posted by 4D786F6D5D6578676B666E0A0 link=1297597938/13#13 date=1300868745
KJM blend....! ;)
We have special blend from our CS member; KJM (300-400g). It will be put in our hopper tomorrow. Anyone wanna swing by for KJM blend, please do! 8-)
PS. Im not sure if I should say what in the blend. KJM could help me on that? ;D
It isnt a secret Fiefy - there is a thread in the blending forum on it...
BUT - the version I dropped off has Yemeni beans instead of Ethiopian.. Must have been fate - I didnt know you loved Yemeni till I dropped them off!
Hope no-one throws the coffee back at you and demands "proper" beans :-[ Thatd be embarrassing!
Just a quick question, what are the business hours of Fiefys cafe?
My new favourite coffee place.
Picked up my CS beans today - as nice as the Barun was, Fiefys is a whole lot more convenient from my work being a block away. Had a nice FW and a chat about the Harrar (I can look forward to apricot and blueberry undertones it seems).
Had previously had the barista blend espresso, the best short coffee I have had in a long time.
I got my beans yesterday I also waked past several coffee places that were nothing like as busy as Fifiy.
I got one of the darkest, strongest and nicest espressos I have ever had
I hope you enjoy the walnuts.
Our business hour is 7.30am - 4.00pm. See you soon! ;)Originally Posted by 4E5B1A1C1A2F0 link=1297597938/17#17 date=1303091732
Glad to hear that you like the place and coffee. ;D Look forward to seeing you again. 8-)Originally Posted by 4D2F0 link=1297597938/18#18 date=1303097479

I must admit I often cycle in it is a lot simplerOriginally Posted by 41535D4B57320 link=1297597938/24#24 date=1329168852
This is my RSVP.* Will be bringing the extended family, so thats the wife, my 3 year old, bro in law and mother in law. 3 coffee drinkers and all sweet tooths so hoping therell be a few deserts on the menu.* see you and Andy on friday night.
By the way Andy, will there be any coffeesnobs merchandise for sale?* ;)
Wonderful celebration at Fiefys specialty cafe.* Had a nice fiefy blend with some latte art and a shot of Yemen.* A bunch of us amateurs even gave it a go behind the counter at some latte art and boy what a difference it is to doing latte art at home.* The PRESSURE!!* hands and knees shaking, and just hardly able to stain the coffee.* Anyway, all in good fun and definitely a new found respect for the Baristas.
Nice to finally meet Andy too.
Congratulations Fiefy on one year of success!* Heres to many more to come.* ;)
Andy Freeman :D

For someone that could not make it to our 1st year anniversay last Friday. GOOD NEWS...we still have MOUNTAIN TOP & YEMEN in our grinder! Hurry up...it wont last long!!!!! 8-)
Ill be in Adelaide on Monday/Tuesday for work... is Fiefys still one of the best bets for a good coffee?* Id be keen to drop in, just to support a fellow CS, and I have no doubt the coffee would be great, so I figure its a no brainer.* Plus, Im actually staying pretty much 1 block directly south of her shop on (Flinders Street), so nice and accessible!
Ill be making my way down to South Terrace, and Ive been told theres a place in the building that Ill be working from called "Funk Coffee".* Im told they do a great coffee, but I am generally skeptical of such recommendations (i.e. not from a fellow CS)!* ;)
Hi Damienh7, yep Fiefys youll get good coffee made right. Cant say much about Funk as Ive never been there and its a franchise whereas Fiefys specialty cafe specialises on coffee as per the name.
Thanks saoye, and I kinda got that franchise vibe from the "Funk Coffee" name.*
I could be surprised, but often ppl say "such and such cafe has great coffee" only to follow it up with "probably even better than I can make on my Nespresso"... or something similarly discrediting (without knowing it) * ;D
I picked up my latest beans on Tuesday and had a great ristretto!
Dropped in to pickup beans and had an Organic @ origin flat white, a Comp blend espresso and a Comp blend flat white. All very delicious!
I promise to come between the allowed times next time round Fiefy!
