This place has a very small menu but everything looks fresh. You place your order at the till and it is delivered to your table. Our coffee orders arrived promptly and correctly and our Banting breakfast was lovely. Good little breakfast spot!

Came here a few years ago and it was really good. Decided to come with my wife and boy was I disappointed. The staff don't even greet you. Unfriendly at its best.

Still the best pizzas on the dolphin coast! Order and pay at the counter. Located near the pathway leading to Granny's Pool. Safe parking in the street.

Having lived in Italy, these pizzas were excellent! Crispy bases, with authentic toppings, just delicious. We will be back!

We always pop in there when we want to go to the Shakas Beach. Park at Cafe and walk across road to beach. Only pizzas and sandwiches. Bathroom available as well which helps wen you come from the beach. Safe parking . Friendly staff. Devine cake of the day! I had carrot cake.

Salt has a great location across the road from the main beach at Chakas Rock. It is quaint and intimate with a bit of a Greek Cafe feel, but the menu is limited and both time I have been there, I couldn't order what I wanted because they had run out of stock.

We stopped here often for early morning coffee, on daily Vespa trips with friends, while on holiday. At this small establishment service was good, and the pastries and coffee were absolutely deliciously yummy. I cannot wait to return.

Very good for a quick and very tasting pizza. Very small venue and is not licenced for liquor but can bring your own.

Freshly baked goodies n aromatic brewed divine coffees. Healthy smoothies and incredible service. Our Pug Marco was accommodated in this pet friendly cafe. From cyclists to swimmers to tourists and regulars. A definite trip back for... More
