Lovely atmosphere. It was too quiet whilst we were there – I don’t understand why as the menu is more varied than the second floor restaurant and atmosphere more relaxed and with nice views across Saltaire.
Food was tasty, if a liittle more pricey than you might have expected – but all in all a nice venue with good, tasty food
A hidden gem in a beautiful location. The cafe has a great and constantly changing menu, unlike the more boring and noisy Salts Diner downstairs. We used to avoid the Cafe as it was definitely marketing itself as a fish restaurant, but started to visit more often on noticiing their other dishes and light bites. Wonderful Fish and Chips and Chicken Schnitzel. We also enjoy the olive with pesto bread combo. Lovely fresh cakes to finish and some great steamed puddings in the winter.
Above all, the winner is the ambience. Chinkling cups, hushed chatter, efficient and friendly waiting staff. The smell of the florists and, if you’re very lucky, a pianist tinkling the ivories. We noticed on average the Cafe is £5 more expensive for a meal, cakes and a few rounds of drinks than the diner downstairs. The superior atmosphere and service is more than worth the slightly hiked price.
Gorgeous little cafe on the top floor of the Salts Mill. You can get to it via the cronky ancient lift which will let you out in the middle of the permanent antiques and oddments display / shop. Then it's a walk through the dimly lit gallery of David Hockney's operatic stage sets before you see the free-standing bower of the Cafe into the Opera nestled by the ever-unattended flower shop.
It's usually quiet in the cafe, away from the bustle of the cafeteria on the floor below. Food is tasty, though slightly pricey for a cafe. But hey, you're on the top floor of the beautiful Salts Mill, soaking in the mysterious regenerated air of the place.
One of my fave places to spend an hour or two with friends.
The only thing to beware is that you don't go on Monday or Tuesday when the cafe is closed. And food orders are only taken between noon and 4pm on the other days.
