The Grand Bar in Glenelg Beach can be found a few metres from the beach. Located on the ground floor of the Stamford Grand Adelaide Hotel, the Grand Bar is a gateway from day to night. Drinks, coffee and light snacks are served throughout the day, and at night the bar becomes an A+ party location. During my (short) visit to Glenelg, I visited The Grand Bar for an afternoon coffee. In addition to a flat white, I ordered a Belgian waffle. Since it was already autumn in Australia, there weren’t many tourists on the way, so the tables at the large panoramic windows to the beach and the promenade were not all occupied.
The Belgian waffle was served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, seasonal fruits (raspberries and blackberries), as well as some sauce. Even if the waffle was a bit hard inside and outside, and not soft and fluffy, it tasted very delicious and the ice cream was tasty. Throughout eating I could not guess what the sauce was, for the chocolate sauce it was too sweet, so maybe some syrup? Anyway, I have not asked since I enjoyed the view and the sun just too much. The Grand Bar in Glenelg is absolutely recommended, but if the parties are really as good as they look in the pictures, I can not say.
