Where else can you get combos for breakfast! I was spoilt for choice, so had the most delicious combo of eggs Benedict and savory French toast. Great coffee too.

We were really hungry & came to the changed and improved Salvation Cafe that has grown so much since I last visited. Claudia the owner, is committed to making fresh healthy tasty food and works hard to do so. Very pleasant sitting under the trees and with good friendly staff, we enjoyed many offerings on the menu. Chill out &... More

We had a fantastic family breakfast, with great service, nice strong coffees and freshly pressed fruit juices. To top it off the food was really good to. Its the perfect venue on a lovely sunny day. Not sure how great it would be in the rain but the are a few tables inside. I suggest that you get there early... More

This seems to be the most popular restaurant in 44 Stanley. I can see why: Excellent food, quick service and good wine. We went there for lunch and while it was crowded, we had made a reservation, so we were seated right away. What a nice experience to be in a local restaurant. We were here for brunch and ate...

Been here twice now and its always nice to eat there with great weather since its outdoor al fresco seating. However, the breakfast menu looks much better than the lunch menu. Breakfast ends at 1130am so be sure to be early. I had the Egyptian veggie burger bunless and it was good. Their wedges are nicely fried, crispy on the... More

Great for weekend breakfasts at 44 Stanley. Never had a bad one and the creamed mushrooms with the way they crisp their bacon is the best!

Enjoyed a chilled Saturday afternoon Lunch with family under the trees in the courtyard. Food was reasonably good, focused on lite meals and simple fare. Service was a little too casual though, and in many instance we were left staring around for help. Not a bad option, but could improve.

Decided to head up town and try 44 Stanley establishments and decided to lunch at Salvation Cafe. Food looks to be all freshly prepared with really lovely small but great menu. Service is friendly and fast. Will come back again.

Breakfast duo was excellent, not only the portions but the combination of sweet and savoury together with the price was a beautiful symphony in our mouths and wallet. We stayed for lunch, my wife ENJOYED the Thai Style fish cakes and myself the SALVATION GOURMET BEEF BURGER - GRASS-FED. I can clearly say that both meals we excellently presented and... More
