Salt scrubs, bath bombs, luxury scented soaps and all manner of nurturing products can be found at Salt Shop, a not-for-profit espresso bar and gift shop rolled into one.
The inspiration behind Salt Shop (part of Salt No Limits organisation) is to teach new skills to unemployed young people in order to boost their confidence and self-esteem.
All the products at Salt Shop have been made by hand on the premises, ranging from jellybean bath bombs, to cotton candy salt scrubs and decadent mint slice themed soaps.
The shop itself has comfortable lounges for relaxing, tables for chatting, and stools which are perfect for a quick cuppa. They serve Establishment Coffee, as well as tea, milkshakes, juices and smoothies.
The food at Salt Shop includes cakes, slices, scones, brownies, toasties, quiches, lasagne and wraps. It is indeed pleasant to sit amongst the sweet and refreshing bathroom products while enjoying some lunch or brunch.
In a nutshell - Support a worthy cause, buy some hand-made goodies for the bathroom and enjoy a coffee and cake all at the same time.
Nice to know - Street parking available in front of Salt Shop.
