Salt Dish Café is a very highly regarded eatery in Geraldton. The Marine Terrace spot is open for breakfast, lunch and selected nights for dinner.
The narrow, quaint heritage exterior belies a venue that is larger than we expected. The noisy front dining room and open kitchen leads to another dining room at the rear, and a shady alfresco courtyard beyond that. We opted to dine outside, as it was a gloriously sunny spring day in Geraldton. Salt Dish is a licensed venue has a decent drinks list. There’s also coffee, tea and soft drinks available.
The menu is made to share, or not, if you’d rather keep a delicious dish to yourself. We went solo, but each dish could easily be shared amongst 3 or 4 people. The spring lamb croquettes were crisp on the outside, moist inside and packed with flavour. Served atop a generous serve of humous, a well dressed salad and zingy gremolata rounded off the tasty dish.
The crunchy cornflake crusted cod was very tasty too. An avocado and pickled cucumber salad was wonderfully fresh. I’d have liked to have seen a few more of the triple cooked chips on the plate. Luckily, this potato loving family ordered a side of hand cut chips with aioli.
Braised duck was tender, complimented nicely by a perfectly cooked spring pea risotto, with spinach, sweet garlic, lemon and parmesan cheese.
All in all, we enjoyed Salt Dish Café, another surprisingly delicious spot in Geraldton. We’d recommend lazing in the dappled courtyard with a glass of wine and some excellent share food anytime!
