Even if Salt didn't have amazing food and the best service I've ever received, I would still have to give 10 out of 10 for the size of their coffees.
Whenever I go to a cafe and my latte comes out in a tiny glass, finished before the food even arrives, I just want to beat my fists on the table and demand a real one. Salt, thank goodness, understands this kind of coffee addiction and serves lattes and cappacinos in a bowl. Yes, a bowl.
Feeling particularly in need of a caffeine hit this morning, I dragged my partner along to the Rosalie cafe so he could see for himself what I have been raving about since my first visit to Salt.
It was a busy Sunday morning and I worried my bowl of coffee would arrive later rather than sooner but my fears were unnecessary. With in 2 minutes of arriving and being seated, I had an enormous coffee in front of me. As the caffeine worked it's magic on my weary self, we tossed up what to order for breakfast. The Mixed Grill, a serving of eye fillet steak, sausage, lamb cutlets and bacon looked a little too much like heart attack on a plate for our liking and the Chocolate French Toast with ice cream too much like dessert. In the end, we settled on Simple Fare Bacon & Eggs and the Potato Gallete with avocado, eggs and bacon.
Again, we were surprised when both dishes came out in under 10 minutes. Both meals were delicious with generous servings of everything. When the waitress came to take our finished plates, mine was licked clean. My partner had been too full to finish and left half of his eggs on his plate, prompting the waitress to inquire as to whether they had been alright, which impressed us both.
All the staff were wonderful (and seemed to have been plucked from the books of model agency, tall, slim, blonde, it was almost enough for me to leave most of my food on the plate. Almost.) Our hunger sated, my partner decreed we could patron Salt every Sunday for brunch. 10 out of 10 for food, service and of course, coffee in a bowl.
