Not sure why the title is Coffee, this is more of a wine bar / bistro than coffee house. We went last night after having dinner in Montrose - it was awesome! They had a Latin night with a DJ playing latin tunes and some...More

I've been to Salento twice so far - for breakfast and for lunch. Both times the food was excellent, prices were very reasonable, and the atmosphere was pleasant. I look forward to going back in the evening and checking out their wine list.
