“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 13, 2009

Sally's looks nice and smells good. The service is good. The food descriptions sound good, but the execution's not great. The mussell fritters were just okay, with a flavorless aioli, and the pear/walnut/beet salad was just canned beets, canned pears, and bottled blue cheese dressing over mixed greens, with a handful of walnuts dumped on top.

“WOW”
Reviewed September 23, 2009

What a magic place. The nicest restaurant i have ever been to. The service was the most friendliest, and the food, WOW!!! if you go to russell go to Sally's. The price is good. Lots of out door seating right on the waterfront. They were very busy thankfully we had booked and every thing went perfectly.

“Fabulous baking here!”
Reviewed September 13, 2009

Sally's has so many treats and we were offered still warm cakes as they came out of the oven. Excellent service and yummy baking right on the waterfront. A lovely cafe!
