I have been working my way through the cafes in Salisbury and this is one of the better ones. One of the baristas boasted that they make the best coffee on the high street and I am inclined to agree. My small americano was actually the right size and not the bucket of brewed charcoal that I would have gotten for the same order in Starbucks. It wasn't the best coffee I'd ever had, but it was tastier than I was expecting and I would absolutely drink it again.
The food was also impressive, served in generous portions at reasonable prices considering the extortionate price of a sandwich at Starbucks, Costa, et al. I remember being less impressed when I tried their breakfasts, but their lunch menu seems to be pretty solid. I'm not a tea person, but my boyfriend is and he enjoyed the tea here a great deal.
I do have a recurring problem, however, which is that in all 3 of the trips I have been to BTP I have had to change my order because something was either sold out or had been cut from the menu entirely. This is forgivable on occasion but it has happened literally every time I've gone there and it is getting tiresome. The staff have even started putting up signs to alert customers as to which menu items are no longer available, which is a nice gesture but fails to solve the underlying issue.
Despite this complaint, BTP looks like it's in a strong position to be the premier coffee shop of the Salisbury high street. I would recommend it for people looking for a quick coffee and/or a light lunch.
