“Good food, good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Enjoyed the food here. Service was somewhat slow but it was busy. Coffee also good. I liked the café atmosphere; something I miss since moving from Melbourne.

Prices were reasonable. I would definitely come back here. Only real complaint is the hours. Not open on weekends? Seems counter-intuitive but I guess that's the owner's choice. Definitely worth a look.

“It ain't fancy, but it is great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Looks pretty ordinary from the outside, but be prepared to be surprised!

A lunch with friends in the garden setting sooo relaxing. Four people, four dishes, four satisfied diners. The food was very good, very we'll presented, and you'd return for the friendly staff. Great coffee to finish the meal. Thanks a lot, it was worth the 470km drive.

“Taste Sensations at Salt Dish Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Always a good lunch or breakfast using as much local produce as possible. Wonderful choice of menu with great use of herbs and spices creating delicious meals in an open kitchen. Consistently great coffee and good range of teas. Quirky decor with Nanna's old dining table and kitchen chairs, comfy sofas with a choice of three seating areas . The outdoor area amongst the pomegranate trees and herb beds is lovely and a quieter area to dine. The service is always friendly.

“See you at the Salt Dish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Geraldton is definitely not a culinary heaven... but there's one place stars above the rest. Salt Dish is open from breakfast until late afternoon...no dinner service, and why? They don't have to - not to even suggest they should, Salt Dish is a thriving cafe with very good coffee, cakes and great food from a really well thought out menu.

The Chef, Heath is a master at blending unexpected flavours and textures, subtle and punchy at the same time, well balanced, nothing "mass produced" or contrived - a range that will suit all tastes. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. at any time during the day you will find folks at Salt Dish, a favourite haunt for locals, people having meetings over coffee, people taking a break from shopping, for breakfast, for lunch or an afternoon snack - whatever the reason, discerning locals head to the salt Dish. The clientele is comprised mainly of repeat customers, and that says something special.- it's almost part of the local language - "See you at the Salt Dish".

The food is out of this world and I wish it was open for evening meals. Location is great and friendly service
