Welcome to Public CBD, Adelaide.
PUBLIC is a caffe, bar and function space located at 12 Franklin Street, a short distance from Adelaide’s Victoria Square and CBD.
Our style is an eclectic mix of ‘old and new‘, inspired by the theme of public spaces, such as old railway stations & grand libraries. PUBLIC is a destination eatery for the quick luncher or the lingering foodie.
“Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act
& one that should not be indulged in lightly”
