Cafe Salsa - 5 West Beach Road, West Beach SA 5024
Recently On The Chopping Board (OTCB) was invited to Cafe Salsa for a foodie day, to check out the new menu and vibe that the new owners have brought to this long time venue. All food and beverages were provided on behalf of Cafe Salsa.
Arriving on a beautiful warm sunny afternoon for a Sunday lunch, we admire the changes to the decor (keeping in mind it has probably been 15 years since our last visit!). The front section, which I (Amanda) remember as the outdoor dining area, now has a beachy bamboo roof and retractable blinds added to the front. This allows fresh air and sunshine to beam through or alternatively to keep the burning sun or the colder weather out once Winter approaches. With retro tables throughout, it has a fun and casual vibe perfect for its seaside location.

Overall, it was a lovely afternoon basking in the warm and inviting surrounds of Cafe Salsa, with live music in the background and the opportunity to try many dishes across the menu. If you live in the area or happen to be seaside, then keep Cafe Salsa in mind for an Italian fix and give our favourites from the day, the pork sausage pizza and gnocchi a try!
