The Best Places To Eat In Alice Springs, Northern Territory

Laura Walkley

Venturing a little off-the-beaten-track doesn’t mean your taste buds need suffer. Alice Springs, situated in the less trodden heart of Australia, attracts tourists looking to explore the outback. But the sleepy town has quite a few culinary gems awaiting too, here are our favorites.

Epilogue Lounge

Epilogue Lounge

A night of one-too-many delicious cocktails in the evening can be followed by a delicious breakfast in the cozy comfort of the Epilogue Lounge. This busy little place provides a buzzing atmosphere, but rest assured the service is very efficient. Live music often accompanies the famous duck pizza in the evening, while the breakfast burrito can be enjoyed alongside a quality coffee – a perfect start to the day or night.

Barra On Todd

Bar, Restaurant, Australian, Contemporary

Alice Springs’ first seafood restaurant is the perfect choice if you are looking for something a little on the fancy side. Meals can be fairly pricey but the stylish and contemporary surroundings are priceless. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served every day of the week in the summer and the bar is open until late every night, meaning there are some pretty good parties and drinking sessions to be had here too.

Cafe, Australian, Vegetarian, Coffee

This quirky café has taken a page out of Melbourne’s book, serving quality coffee and breakfast in a retro setting. Excellent vegetarian options are on offer too and visitors really get bang for their buck when it comes to portion sizes. Don’t leave without sampling one of those elegant layered lattes, poured as meticulously as a work of art, and just check out the photo-worthy eggs Benedict; creamy and doused with fried mushrooms.

Casa Nostra Pizza & Spaghetti House

Casa Nostra Pizza & Spaghetti House does precisely what it says on the tin: fantastic pizza pies cooked up in the style of the Italian Boot itself (think crispy Napoli dough and fresh mozzarella) and creative, flavorsome pastas worthy of Tuscan farmhouse kitchens. And while the pizzas are great and the food as classic as it comes, it is the atmosphere here that is the real draw; alive with chattering locals and the occasional Italian traveler sampling their native cuisine far from the motherland.

Red Ochre

If you want a taste of Australia, Red Ochre is the place to go. Camel sausage pasta and smoked kangaroo salad are just a few of the experimental modern Australian flavors on offer on the menu, while the fine ambience of Red Ochre is created by the prime location in the downtown, just opposite the city’s botanical gardens. Expect plenty of regional seafood and game meat, doused in real Australian garnishes and served up with a dash of culinary flair.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
