A local fixture in the Rosalie Village neighbourhood of Paddington, Salt Food Wine Coffee offers a comprehensive food and drink experience, as the name of the cafe and restaurant suggests. Found on Nash Street between Elizabeth Street and Baroona Road, many make the cafe arm of Salt their daily morning destination, with great coffee, big breakfasts and speedy service perfect for the wind up to a busy day. Come the weekend, this Brisbane cafe is packed – if you want to while away a Saturday or Sunday over brunch then get your booking in early. Later on in the day Salt’s Mediterranean and Italian character comes to the fore, with a selection of tapas (the coconut prawns with wasabi aioli are fantastic), salads, pasta, risotto and gnocchi, grilled and oven-baked meat dishes and a generous deluxe tasting plate taking centre stage.
A regular fixture with the Brisbane foodie community, Salt Food Wine Coffee is, in a way, split down the middle.

Nice fresh Mediterranean food, friendly service, good location in the middle of Rosalie village. Would definitely go back. We had dinner, but they also offer breakfast.
Excellent food and reasonably priced. Great night out. Good location only issue was parking but managed to find a spot up the road. All good.
We Loved it! The food was excellent! The service was great! My favourite cafe's are usually never open in the evening. I LOVE that this one is. It was a perfect atmosphere for our group of 8. We had an excellent night.
Very professional polite service, good quality but expensive. Entertainment guide voucher sealed the deal. Good quality ingredients and tasteful decor. I would return with friends.
We had a lovely Sunday lunch sitting outside. Unfortunately the flies were very bad but there isn't much that can be done about that during a Queensland summer. I tried the pork belly, which my friend ordered, and it was very tender and moist - melt in your mouth! My husband and I had the chicken saltimbocca which was very nice and flavoursome. I would have liked a little more of the sauce, as the chicken was just a touch dry. However, it was a lovely meal, in general. The menu had lots of options, including gluten free, which is important to me as a coeliac. I would definitely go back!
The staff were very nice and helpful. We both had the Chicken Saltimbocca. The chicken was nice but the green vegetables on the plate were almost raw so we left most of them. We ordered a side of roast vegetables and these were quite nice. The meal was a bit too herby for me. The wine choice was good. My husband had the Creme Brûlée for dessert and that was nice. I had the Lemon Tart which tasted like it had loads of gelatine in it but the accompanying Lemon Curd, Ice Cream and Berry Jam were lovely.
friendly staff greeted the four of us and continued to be attentive to our table. The menu was great for us and once our meals arrived we were all very happy it is GOOD food...an easy going night all round and we will be back to try that Fried Chicken sandwich which must be popular as there was none left!
We attended Salt for a business lunch on a Friday. They were not overly busy, but we waited 30mins after being seated for a menu and then only received it because we asked for it. Service was exceptionally slow. Food was great. Left and went across the road for coffee and desserts because we sat with our finished plates in front of us for 45 mins, no sign of a dessert or coffee menu and table still uncleared when we left. Eventhough food was good, wouldn't recommend based on exceptionally slow service on a not very busy day.
Beautiful food and great service but slightly disappointed that they closed the kitchen before we could order dessert, the chef's apparently went home?. The restaurant was suppose to close at 10pm according to Google however they were packing up at 9pm? Great food but would've loved dessert!
So good! the wait staff was even better! My lamb shank was full of flavour. I wish my bombe Alaska was on fire though but I heard that it might be a health and safety issue. dang it!
