Today, I found myself with a meeting-free morning and an excuse to be downtown around breakfast so, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try out the recently opened Solomon’s Delicatessen. They have been working on this one for a while so it’s very nice to have a location much closer to me. Though, their Davis location (my standby since we moved here) isn’t all that far away.
I immediately feel in love with the entrance. As you can see, there is some great artwork around it. So many colors, you can’t help feeling happy as you walk in.
Inside has a nice vibe. I originally thought that I would pull out the laptop and knock out some work while there but, that didn’t quite work out. One because my laptop battery was completely drained and I couldn’t find any outlets that were “customer accessible”. And two, it was kind of noisy and “echo-y” in there. I work a lot better in small, quiet places.
The food is good, and I didn’t expect anything otherwise. I ordered The Russ, which is my go to. Bagel and lox, with onion, capers, and tomato, is one of my top 3 favorite things to have for breakfast. Solomon’s smokes their own lox, and you can tell. Their coffee is good too; it reminds me of a classic diner’s coffee. Nothing fancy but it’s comforting and familiar.
