Great coffee, sandwiches, veggie options and the best baklava you could ever want (much better than a lot of the ones we've eaten in the middle east), always homemade and totally fresh, served by really friendly Turkish owners. A super place for a good daytime pit stop.

The staff here has always been unfriendly every time I've been here. Their description of large and small salad boxes is unclear and the waitresses don't help making it clear at the beginning. They did not give me what I wanted in my salad box. The waitress made an absolute mess dumping each ingredient into my salad box, leaving a... More

Had a very nice ham salad roll, but service took a long time. Seemed more focussed on serving coffees than those that sat in, but I can't complain at the food or the price. Maybe if I ordered a coffee with the roll I may have been serbed quicker!

Went with #2 child. Lunch of soup and sandwiches. Very very good. Coffee was far better than those available in any of the chains. Great wee spot!

First time here today and not really any major issues. There's quite a bit of local competition on the cafe/lunch front and Rocksalt holds it's own although there's something missing that would make it outstanding. We ordered Eggs Benedict, Eggs on the Shore and Pancakes with bacon. We got 2 Eggs on the Shore ( quickly replaced without fuss with... More
