Went here between meetings for a quick bite. Lovely, down to earth but incredibly tasty place to eat. I hand the shrimp and avocado sandwich. It is amazing.

Tried Sweetsalt for brunch on a Sunday after church around 11am and thankfully there was no wait & good seating to be had...score!! You order at the counter and then you grab a table and wait to be served. We both had the breakfast burrito $10 which comes with a little side salad on the plate. It's totally enough to... More

Charming in every way, and a delicious place to sit with a friend and visit. Soups and salads are creative and delicious. Gorgeous homemade desserts. Get there early because by lunchtime there's no parking and also a long line to order. Just completely lovely!! Never want to leave once I sit down here.

Went there for the first time. The menu takes straightforward items and takes them to creative heights. We both enjoyed our lunch: Champagne chicken salad, and a Panini. It was a bit pricey, but it was a solid meal with fresh ingredients.

A friend and I went to Sweetsalt this morning at her request. I had the Chicken Mushroom Melt sandwich which was delicious--gooey with Gruyere cheese, earthy mushrooms and chicken--with a side of salad. It was delicious although I wish that the cheese had melted slightly more. The salad was plain (although I could taste that they used walnut oil) but... More

Ok place for lunch or a snack, but I found their sandwiches to be mediocre, with lots of calories and fat. Went for a late lunch with friends and had the chicken truffle sandwich. It lacked truffle flavor and was quite greasy. After that, I passed on dessert. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Tonight we had our first meal at Sweetsalt. From start to finish we were really happy we finally made it over to Toluca Lake to give it a try. We wanted a healthier starter, so we opted to share the pear & pomegranate salad. It was perfectly balanced with the creaminess of the goat cheese, the bitterness of the arugula,... More

While the noise inside can approach din-level, the quality and taste of the food makes it tolerable, with equally appealing temptations on both sides of the healthy-sinful scale. Plumply-filled sandwiches (we each took home half for lunch the next day) on freshly made breads are served with generous portions of first-rate quality salads. And a window filled with desserts, from... More

Sweetsalt is an Excellent little place with great food and great atmosphere. I never go there without seeing someone I know or ordering something I like. You place your order at the counter and then they bring you your food so it is quick and especially a good place if you only have a short time for lunch but want... More

I've been coming for a while so it feels safe to leave a good review. Haven't had a bad meal here yet. In the very beginning there were some service issues to work out but things are much smoother now. The salads are terrific. I especially like the salmon - I also hear good things about the kale tacos but... More
