Salt | Covent Garden


Another day, another cafe in Covent Garden. I promise I don't have a one track mind, it just happens to be convenient because its one of the only places in London that is right between the three university campuses of me and my friends, so it makes sense for us to meet there for coffees, lunch and gossiping.

I went to Salt for lunch yesterday for a post Christmas catchup with my two friends Maddy and Mausi, and props to Maddy for picking this place as our destination because it was lovely! I got there first and noticed immediately that the one downfall of this cafe is the lack of extensive seating, but because we were arriving after the lunchtime rush I luckily managed to grab the window seats and get some pretty impressive seat-saving going.

The choices for lunch are relatively limited but everything is fresh and completely delicious which I think is infinitely preferable to a huge array of average food like you tend to get in most of the larger coffee shops. Mausi went for a very mediterranean looking salad which was amazing (I tried some of course) and Maddy and I chose the more warming option of chickpea and chorizo stew with bread which was phenomenal and something I'm definitely going to try and recreate at home. 

If you don't fancy lunch I would say its still worth going to Salt just for the selection of teas, coffee and cake available. I was very tempted by the look of the Red Velvet cake but I was still completely full from the stew so instead I just opted for a cappuccino. I'm no expert on coffee but it was one of the best I've ever had, and the Italian amongst us approved as well which I think tells you all you need to know!

Now I'm off to research stew recipes...how exactly do you cook chickpeas again?!
