Convenient location to Monticello and Highlawn, limited menu but sandwich was fresh and tasty. Lots of outdoor seating. Nice option if you like the offerings of sandwiches or cheese platters that day.

“Wonderful lunch stop!”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

If in the vicinity of Monticello, pass by the noxious, overpriced Michie Tavern and and choose Salt Artisan Market for lunch. It has a small menu of sandwiches, salads, soups and baked goods. Service is very friendly and quick, considering the quality of the fare. I had an exquisite blt with home grown tomato, lettuce, and thick, delicious bacon. The English muffin was very tender and tasted home made. My friend raved about the cheese plate which included a generous selection of locally made cheese and salami. Spiced nuts and several gorgeous blackberries rounded out the plate. This would be perfect to bring along to a vineyard, in fact the Jefferson Vineyard is located directly across the street with a lovely mountain view. There are a couple of small tables inside the Market and several picnic tables outside. My only complaint is that no rest room facilities are available and one must truck across the road to the Jefferson Vineyard for that. Not too great if you have young ones along or prefer to freshen up before eating.

We planned to stop here for lunch on our first day in Charlottesville after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was more than I expected. Simple menu of sandwiches and salads and very friendly service. We were traveling with our 3 kids, one a baby so we were able to put down a blanket outside and have a picnic. Right across the street is the Jefferson Vineyards and Monticello is right down the street. Beautiful area. It was a wonderful first stop on our trip!!

“Don't miss this quaint little sandwich shop”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

We stopped for lunch on our way to Monticello and Jefferson Winery. What a pleasant surprise. The sandwiches were delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful. Since it was Sunday, they delivered our lunch to the Jefferson Winery which was across the street so we were able to enjoy our lunch outside on the shaded deck at the winery--with a bottle or two of wine--of course. I had a chicken salad sandwich which was fresh and tasty. I'd definitely come back.

“Great find”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Came across this place traveling from James Monroe's estate going to Monticello. Great place to stop for lunch with excellent artisan sandwiches. 3 cheese grilled cheese and chicken salad sandwiches were great. The people running the place are very friendly.
Try the cherry soda they sell. It was really good!!
