Located on Melbourne Street in North Adelaide, Heat Café offers brunch style dishes, many of which are quite unique. It was quite popular. There was a crowd of a good size when we visited.

As its name implies, the butternut pumpkin in the Hasselback Pumpkin was cut in a similar way to a Hasselback Potato. The pumpkin was soft while still retaining a bit of bite and had a delectable slightly sweet taste. It was partnered nicely with the hummus, a dip made from chickpeas, and some crunch was provided by the maple roasted seeds. Completing the dish were pomegranate molasses, smoked coconut labneh and a topping of fresh herbs.

The potato hash in the Blue Swimmer Crab Hash was light and fluffy and fried sufficiently to give it a nice crisp exterior. The blue swimmer crab meat topping the potato hash had a delectable salty taste. The crab meat was also mixed into the hash itself. The poached eggs had runny yolks and a jelly added a touch of sweetness to the dish.

When ordering Eggs Your Way, diners can choose to have the eggs fried, poached or scrambled. The scrambled eggs that we chose was fluffy and not overcooked and the slice of sourdough bread was toasted to a lovely degree. Served with the dish was whipped butter to spread on the toast. If they wish, diners can add extra ingredients like gin cured salmon for an extra cost.

In addition to brunch style dishes, the café also offers a selection of pastries for those looking for a quick eat. Their Cinnamon Scroll was light and crisp with a delectable buttery taste. It was topped with a dusting of cinnamon and sugar to provide its characteristic flavour.

The décor of the café gave it a casual feel and diners have the choice of indoor or outdoor seating. It can get quite busy so booking ahead is advised if you want to avoid having to wait for a table.
