“Great outdoors place for breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great selection of items on the menu for breakfast. Great service and good value for money. Nice to sit outside under the trees in summer or indoors / on the terrace when things get a bit cooler.

“Great Breakfast Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Although the standard has somewhat diminished slightly since i started going to Salvation Cafe a year ago, the quality has merely shifted from Fantastic/Excellent to Great.

Go for an early breakfast to avoid being on put on the waiting list, grab a freshly squeezed juice and enjoy the egg bennies.
You'll love it.

After breakfast, take a sneaky turn into Bean There coffee shop (around the corner) and grab a coffee to go.

“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Salvation Cafe remains one of our best discoveries yet. Food is fab, the service great. I'm happy to give it my vote of the best baked cheese cake this side of the equator!

“Lunch to salivate for...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Late lunch for two at Salvation easily lived up to all the positive hype this popular eatery has garnered. The blended Salvation juices were a refreshing choice. Free-range chicken wrap with additional haloumi cheese as well as the asian inspired tempura calamari are recommended as ideal light lunch options. Good value for money to be found in the fresh ingredients and well executed cooking. A particularly well presented asian greens salad a true highlight. Service was efficient, yet somehow impersonal, with the particular waiter perhaps anticipating the end of day a little too obviously. Still, highly recommended in the personality-rich 44 Stanley space.
