A bustling café with a Mediterranean flavour with a good takeaway selection and outdoor seating for the sunnier days.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

The lower of Rocksalt’s two tiers is great for enjoying the buzz of a thriving takeaway business built around a Mediterranean deli, while the upstairs section tends to be favoured by those looking to linger longer. Wooden crates add an artisan feel – apt, given the cafés reliance on small producers. The glass-fronted bar is packed with salad goodies such as falafel and stuffed vine levels, while the counter is piled high with scones, pastries and cakes. Hot food spans everything from breakfasts to burgers while, weather permitting, outside tables are ideal for lingering over coffee, a cool beer or a glass of wine.
