We took a day trip from DC to visit Monticello and wanted to grab a bite ahead of time. I found Salt based on Yelp reviews and proximity to Monticello. The staff were very friendly and even brought the food over to nearby Jefferson vineyards where we sat out with a bottle of wine and our food. Great little salads and sandwiches--the perfect proportions. I would definitely recommend this little stop to anyone looking to visit Monticello!

High quality food. The chef here obviously has a relationship with food and loves to share it. Before you take your first amazing mouthful, you need to have a camera handy. The food is beautiful and tastes even better. Minutes away from Monticello, this would be the place I would recommend people stop (you can have them pack up a picnic) for a meal. This small restaurant sits across the street from a lovely red roofed church and a vineyard. The only drawback is the if you need to visit a restroom you'll need to stop at the vineyard to do so.

We planned our day around having lunch here, based on the reviews we read. So glad we did! The special of the day was a BLT with fresh-picked heirloom tomato and a Virginia bacon. Absolutely delicious! The decor was well- done vintage and the gal behind the counter was very personable. The only negative was that my husband would've liked the portion size to be a little larger.

Convenient location to Monticello and Highlawn, limited menu but sandwich was fresh and tasty. Lots of outdoor seating. Nice option if you like the offerings of sandwiches or cheese platters that day.

If in the vicinity of Monticello, pass by the noxious, overpriced Michie Tavern and and choose Salt Artisan Market for lunch. It has a small menu of sandwiches, salads, soups and baked goods. Service is very friendly and quick, considering the quality of the fare. I had an exquisite blt with home grown tomato, lettuce, and thick, delicious bacon. The English muffin was very tender and tasted home made. My friend raved about the cheese plate which included a generous selection of locally made cheese and salami. Spiced nuts and several gorgeous blackberries rounded out the plate. This would be perfect to bring along to a vineyard, in fact the Jefferson Vineyard is located directly across the street with a lovely mountain view. There are a couple of small tables inside the Market and several picnic tables outside. My only complaint is that no rest room facilities are available and one must truck across the road to the Jefferson Vineyard for that. Not too great if you have young ones along or prefer to freshen up before eating.
