I love food, art and writing about my family's adventures with Magic, our border collie who believes our purpose in life is to serve and entertain her . Look out for my creative efforts as I establish my very own Dragonfly Days Creative Studio.

Get your caffeine Reload in a renovated ammunitions factory
So you rushed out the door this morning and haven't stopped since. Breakfast is a distant memory and a freshly brewed coffee is long overdue. But you're in the middle of warehouses, business and commercial buildings in Salisbury. Where do you find a decent coffee? At Reload Espresso Bar, of course.
Located at 9 Chrome Street Salisbury, Reload Espresso Bar is easily missed as you drive down Evans Road. The locals know the quaint painted sign leaning against the pole on the corner of Chrome Street leads you to great coffee. Reload is a popular meeting spot for locals and businesses and is housed in a renovated ammunitions factory, hence their name. Hidden in this industrial area, it is next door to Atelier Art and across the road from a dance school. As a result, weekends can be very busy for this coffee house but the service is friendly and the food is delicious, so it's worth a little wait at busy times.
The eclectic mashup of vintage furnishings and funky retro décor give it a very cool ambience to enjoy their coffee and delicious food. The menu ranges from bites on the run to main dishes lovingly made on site by the talented staff. But there is more to this espresso bar than just coffee and food. There is always something happening as the space is also used as a music venue on scheduled Friday and Saturday nights for independent and local artists. Yoga under the stars followed by some of Reload's tasty morsels is proving to be a community favourite.

Reload recently coordinated the Chrome Street festival held in March where the whole street was converted into a cultural feast with open air dining at decorated tables extending down the street. Diners were entertained with bands and even the opportunity to try their hand at painting with Atelier Art Studio from next door. Check out their Facebook page to keep up with the latest events.
