Solomon’s Cafe, Highgate

I have recently discovered the deliciousness of Elmar’s bratwurst sausages and a special trip to the Beaufort Street shop was the perfect excuse to stop in at one of the cafes nearby.

I was drawn into Solomon’s Café by its small cosy appearance, dimly lit lights and exposed brickwork. Hanging framed portraits of coffee was duly another reason to pop in. I love my coffee!

I placed my order at the counter, a short macchiato with soy milk and a pumpkin paleo pie to takeaway. I noticed there was a good selection of raw and paleo dessert options in the cabinet. This morning I was on my own, armed with my iPad to strike off a few emails and a bag of bratwurst sausages for dinner later that evening. I do not mind having a coffee in the early mornings alone. I consider it a time where I can focus on my thoughts. Which, lately, seem to be the opposite of dreamy reflective ones and more to do with ‘okay must do this’ and ‘do that’. It’s positively good though, I am able to align it all, clearing up space in the brain for better thoughts!

The short macchiato arrives and it’s the aroma that I love the most about drinking coffee. I asked for a traditional short macchiato which is served with a dash of milk. I’m not one to down a cup of coffee quickly, even if it’s a small macchiato or espresso. I nurse it, and if I am behind the computer at work, for hours!

The coffee was hot and strong. It was perfect. Solomon’s use Karvan 100% arabica beans which is also a West Australian coffee bean company.

Solomon’s offers patrons dairy, gluten and refined white sugar free food. The dishes are made from organic produce.  To be honest, I’m a little skeptical, when I see the words organic produce, its difficult to tell and the consumer does place a great deal of trust into the business. However, it does look to be that Solomon’s cafe is genuine in this regard.

The breakfast menu includes chia puddings and a delicious sounding carnivore plate, served with grainless pumpkin paleo toast. I’ll definitely be returning for breakfast in the near future.

After about an hour of cleaning my thoughts with mellow jazz music playing away in the background, it was time to leave. Later in the day I ate my little paleo pumpkin pie. It was kind of like a muffin with a soft middle of pumpkin cream. It wasn’t too sweet at all to eat and was quite delicious.

Overall, a great little café in the heart of Beaufort’s café strip.
