Who made your MENU?

Showcasing the very best in Sri Lankan seasonal produce through modern brunch classics we teamed up with Ash Hays from @formysenses who joined the Salty crew and we put together a menu based on a healthy surfing lifestyle.

Our menu combines the freshest local ingredients with Western forms of preparation to bring something different to the table. Avo on toast paired with local sambals from the region, contemporary twists on classic Sri Lankan breakfasts, everywhere you look on our menu is a meeting point between the methodologies of one culture fusing with the flavours and ideas of another.

We also strive to make our menu totally inclusive; there are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options at all times, plus a few things for our more carnivorous clientele as well.

SUGAR?

No added sugar just goodness. All our juices smoothies and shakes are made fresh here by our "blendoligist" - no added sugar just goodness. We use raw sugar for pickling and in baking fresh muffins thats it. 

DAiry free?

See Vegans for more details on this - but we have lots of dairy free options take a look at our menu.
