• Restaurant Review: SweetSalt Food Shop

    Happy Thursday everyone!

    I recently stumbled across a hidden gem of a restaurant near my neighborhood that was really tasty! SweetSalt Food Shop is a café and bakery that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have a large variety on their menu, catering towards vegetarians and meat lovers! There really is something for everyone here! Don’t forget to try some of there homemade pastries!

    First Impression

    As soon as you walk up to SweetSalt you get this neighborhood friendly vibe. The location is so cute! It’s nestled in between other stores along Riverside Drive in a busy area or “main drag” of Toluca Lake. This area is popular for lunchtime with all the studios nearby. Once I went in I got another vibe that this was somewhere some come to have lunch everyday with friends and co-workers.

    Taste

    So good! I was really impressed with all the items on the menu and especially with my meal! I had the Kale and Brussel Sprouts Tacos. The flavors in these tacos were amazing! Also, being mostly vegetarian I appreciated their twist on the taco! They do offer the option to add Chicken or Salmon to these!

     

    Décor

    The décor was really simple inside SweetSalt but it had style. There are mainly hues of gray, black and brown in the restaurant. There is almost a vintage vibe, with lots of wooden chairs, wooden floors, and black crow decor found throughout the restaurant.

     

    Price

    I thought it was pretty reasonable and standard for lunch in LA.

    Service

    Great! Everyone working there was very friendly!

     

    Ambiance

    Relaxing. Although they were busy it did not feel uncomfortable or overwhelming. There were a couple of people who were just working on their computers. If you can work from a restaurant it must be relaxing in some way! ;)

     

    Overall Experience

    I really liked this restaurant! Great food (I would definitely go back for those tacos!) and pleasant atmosphere! I recommend giving this spot a try!
