1. Get this chocolate overload into your tummy

For some, Easter is all about chocolate. Well, at C.R.E.A.M on Jetty Road in Brighton, the chef has cooked up a French Toast, hotcross bun, icecream sandwich with Nutella swirl, chopped Easter eggs, fresh chopped strawberries and maple syrup because for some, chocolate just isn’t enough.

Available until the end of Easter, so book in now if this is something you will not be able to live without.

Find C.R.E.A.M at 4/49 Jetty Rd Brighton.

2. Enjoy a Sunday Sesh on the Easter long weekend

Cry Baby is teaming up with Seamore’s over in Henley Square for a massive Sunday sesh by the beach. There’ll be drink specials on the day and DJs spinning tiki surf rock vibes before the sun sets and the dance floor kicks off in classic Cry Baby fashion. Pre-sale tickets have sold out, but there will be $20 tickets on the door.

This is one Sunday sesh you don’t want to miss.

See here for more info.

3. Check out the new entrance to Adelaide Railway Station

If you haven’t already, then take a walk through the newly renovated entrance to the Adelaide Railway Station. Located at the northern end of the building, the entrance is all curves and arches and golden light but nothing like McDonald’s. Once you’ve walked through, you could then jump on a train and go on an adventure. Or, catch the train to watch a game of footy at the Adelaide Oval.

4. Tuck into a dessert ‘hot pot’

Meet Dessert, one of Adelaide’s buzzing dessert cafes, has unveiled an afternoon tea that will have sweet tooths across the city frothing. Served cold and only from Monday to Friday (2-6pm), this gluttonous feast features eleven Meet Dessert signature toppings that you will be able to dip into milk tea. For bubble tea fans, this is a must. You’ll have to be quick because quantities are limited.

More info through their Facebook page.

Find Meet Dessert at 61A Gouger Street.
