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

The old women was rude to me and very unkind. I left and went to a different place. Unless friendly mannered new owners take over I... 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

This was a great choice for lunch while facing the agony of shopping. Fishcakes amazing. Brilliant music to accompany us eating.

Such a great cafe and lovely good. Some of the staff (tall Spanish guy) are so delightful however I'm currently sitting here with a full English breakfast. I asked for ketchup (probably quite common of me) and was given an empty bottle. I asked for another bottle to which I was told "that's all we have" in a very rude... More

I visit Rocksalt most weekends for a sandwich and some soup (I live around the corner and it's a nice treat for the weekend). The staff are friendly and accomodating. Sandwiches and salads are made fresh on the spot, great tasty soup. It's been a while since I ordered coffee here but I do recall it was great. The premises... More

Its an OK coffee shop - interesting old building with character. Now offers tapas some evenings as well as coffee and snacks so its worth visiting. On 16 bus route.
