With its own roasting machine, SoulBytes specialises in good coffee and offers a range of specialist creations using beans that have been selected from producers in different regions of Indonesia and other countries. If you like your coffee a little sweet there is the Crème Brulee cappuccino, and for something unusual, there is the Jamu Coffee combining jamu, a traditional Indonesian medicine, with black coffee.
The menu has a lot to choose from, it is simple and freshly prepared in an open kitchen and yet offers a tantalising array of interesting creations including light bites, specialist burgers, salads, all day breakfasts, pastries and pancakes.
Highly recommended samples from the menu include the Cured Salmon using beetroot-cured Tasmanian salmon served with homemade hash browns, horseradish and crème fraiche and the Smashed Avocado and Kale smeared over grilled sunflower seed multigrain and topped with poached eggs.
The Coachman’s Shadow, a stack of fluffy banana pancakes swirled with honeycomb butter and crème Chantilly, is divine and goes perfectly with Gibraltar, one of the signature coffees – taller than a macchiato but smaller than a latte.
And finally, when you order coffee in SoulBytes, don’t be surprised if it comes with a piece of paper with a few words of wisdom to stimulate the mind and nourish the soul.
