Tell Your SA Mates, The Yard In Rundle Mall Is Now Open!

Quick book your flights to SA, we're returning to Adelaide for a triple threat pop-up with Archie Rose and Hoy Pinoy at The Yard In Rundle Mall.

It's the most exciting time of the year to be in Adelaide, and this year we're throwing ourselves into the mix. We've joined forces with Hoy Pinoy and Archie Rose Distilling Co. to create a brand new pop up — The Yard In Rundle Mall.  The one-stop food and drink festival has your lunch, dinner, dessert and drink plans sorted.

After the success of Vogue Festival last year, we couldn't think of a better opportunity to get back to our roots in Adelaide, than to be a part of one of Australia's biggest cultural events. You'll be able to come and hang out with us in Gawler Place (Rundle Mall), chow down on smokey Filipino BBQ, get a few Archie Rose cocktails into you and indulge in a smorgasbord of desserts by our team. Plus every Friday night, The Yard will transform with DJ's and special cocktails... so you'll never want to leave.

We've channelled our inner-Adelaidean to create the most South Australian dessert menu possible, including our tribute to Balfours Bakery's famous 'Frog Cake', plus a few of our most popular signature and special flavours.


  • OFF WITH THE FAIRIES – Fairy bread gelato coated in white choc and dipped in hundreds and thousands $9
  • WHAT’S UP KERMIT? Salted caramel gelato, honeycomb chunks and whipped cream cake $10 
  • MY KITCHENER RULES (made to order) – fresh kitchener bun filled with vanilla gelato and raspberry puree $10

Just next door to us, there's going to be Adelaide Festival’s magnificent A Doll's House art installation by world renowned Japanese artist Tatzu Nishi. Entry is free and it looks insanely cool, so don't forget to give it a visit before/after you come and say hi to us.

The Yard is child-friendly and has free entry.
