This is a tiny place, with only two indoor tables and a smattering of outside tables. Good organic and I assume vegan food also available. We took ours "to go," and ate it at a picnic table at nearby Ashlawn-Highlands.

We stopped here twice this year so far while visiting Charlottesville area wineries. While many of the wineries also offer food, we found the menu and food at Salt much more interesting - and reasonable. The sandwiches offered were interesting combinations served on first rate breads. My husband ordered the three cheese grilled cheese sandwich both times, and raved about... More

The wonderfully energetic and passionate ladies at this fabulous little place do incredible work with sandwiches. The baguettes are excellent and their sandwich creations are interesting and delicious. My better half chose a special fennel sausage creation, served hot, and I went with a wonderful spinach, brie and bacon that was simply delicious. They have some nice tables indoors and... More

Inside and out, this is a simple deli café with limited seating...HOWEVER, the sandwiches were out of this world! *** Very tasty to the last bite. *** We ordered and split two HOT sandwiches. One sandwich was like a vegetarian with tomato's, greens, and mozzarella with a sauce. The second sandwich as some combination of chicken, cheese, and vegetables. We... More

This place is so adorable and the food is great too. All of the area wineries have beautiful, scenic areas to enjoy a picnic and this place is the perfect spot to grab your food. They even make up a seasonal cheese and charcuterie board. And if you are not visiting wineries, they have some tables out front to enjoy... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Jefferson Winery-great choice. The sandwiches were delicious and filling but not overwhelming. Locally grown food (always a plus) and very friendly staff. The snickerdoodles are a must.

Went out of our way to find this place on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews. was not disappointed. The sandwiches which are actually home made baggettes are excellent in quality and also presentation. Never seen such attention in detail to a takeway ! Very friendly staff. Can be a little pricey if you are not careful.

This place is on the way to Monticello and near-by haunts; you should definitely stop. The meats, cheeses and bread are all top notch. Inventive combinations of flavors; nothing was overcooked. Decor was spot-on, staff are hip and friendly, music selection of the day was hip hop late 90s/early 00s, so I was dancing in my seat. Would love if... More
