Promoting the gastronomic bounty of South Australia and Adelaide, Boomers On The Beach is a colourful cafe, bar, restaurant and events space in the beachside suburb of Glenelg where you can prop yourself up inside or head to the terrace to watch the sun set over Holdfast Bay. Boomers is found inside the Glenelg Town Hall at Moseley Square, making it a prominent neighbourhood fixture for lovers of good Australian food, wine, music and art. Moments from the beach itself, Boomers packs out on sunny days, so be sure to book ahead for some proper elbow space.
A lovely cafe with the added bonus of a Nature Playground right outside its' windows. I keep coming back to this funky place with delicious home style meals.
What a great location. Staff are lovely and friendly. Menu has something for everyone and food was good but unfortunately I think they really need to look at their systems in place. Food was really slow to come out, two coffees were ordered, one came out and one didn't and then after asking took another 20 mins before it came. We were also missing some food and again after asking twice for it took another 30 mins for it to arrive. It was only a toasted cheese sandwich! Other downside is really limited cake selection if you are looking for something yummy with a coffee. Unfortunately with so much choice we probably won't be returning in a hurry!
Great views of beach and jetty. Excellent access to the new foreshore playground. Food was good. Staff were friendly and attentive. Very family friendly place.
Boomers On The Beach sports retro style in spades, a beachfront cafe and restaurant that’s all about South Australian culinary culture. Take a dip at Glenelg beach and head to Boomers Town Hall premises at Moseley Square (after washing the sand off your feet, mind) for the famous Boomer burger made with marinated kangaroo. Grab an al fresco spot and send the kids off to play in the new beachfront playground while you enjoy a South Australian wine or an Adelaide microbrew before perusing the buyable art created by local artists.
Boomers On The Beach is slowly but surely building a reputation in and around Adelaide for its house-smoked fish and bacon, which you’ll find gracing many dishes on the menu. An ethical player in the city’s DIY restaurant scene, Boomers’ tables are all fashioned from recycled timber gleaned from the old Pasadena basketball stadium – eating off the floor has never been so acceptable or so damn funky. Top picks at this Glenelg hotspot include the Boomers breakfast, served until a healthy 2pm, the daily fish special (there’s nothing better than looking out over the bay with a fresh market catch in front of you), the housemade gourmet pies, and the considerate kids’ menu that doesn’t condescend when it comes to younger gastronomes.
