Let Them Eat with Elaine Cheng

Elaine Cheng takes her sketchbook to catch up with Tanya Agius and Dani Frankish to talk about their healthy food, the closure of their original cafe at Croydon and plans for something new.

  • Words and pictures: Elaine Cheng

Let Them Eat was the first place that made me appreciate vegetarian food, and dare I say, had me hooked on my first bite. They were at the forefront of the wholefood trend when it started to emerge in Adelaide, and for good reason.

You can visit Let Them Eat at Shop 26D in the Central Market Arcade on Mondays from 10am – 3pm, Tuesday to Thursday from 8am – 4pm, Fridays from 8am – 9pm and on Saturdays from 7am – 3pm.

While you’re there, Elaine recommends you try the hand-rolled falafel, pumpkin & red lentil lasagne, sweet potato & goat cheese tart, thai curry crepe, mushroom moussaka, all the salads, all the fritters.

Tanya and Danielle have crafted beautiful, rustic dishes full of heart and charm. Their portion sizes are as generous as their prices. I promise every meat lover out there that you will feel deprived of nothing at Let Them Eat, good food is good food, it can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.

I was terribly sad to hear that their Croydon store was closing, so I chased them up for an interview. I’m so glad that I did, because now I know that it wasn’t the end of anything, it was the start of many wonderful things. The team is ready to move forward and I can’t wait to see what they have coming up next.
