The team behind beloved Newstead caffeine pitstop Salt Coffee Roasters opened a sibling venue in October 2020, just a stone’s throw from James Street. Little Salt is the brainchild of Salt’s owner Zac Lazarac and Jordan Navybox, the managing director of top-tier buyer’s agency Cohen Handler. The kiosk operates out front of Cohen Handler’s new office on McLachlan Street, mere meters from the entrance to Little James Street. Interior design and property development group Shaw and Keenan and construction specialists Brooklyn Building Co. conceptualised and executed Little Salt’s sleek all-white aesthetic with green accents. A coffee bar faces a sunny deck, boasting a cluster of seats for dine-in shaded by cabana-style umbrellas. As for the coffee itself, Salt has its signature Julie blend on deck, plus a weekly rotation of freshly roasted single origins for batch brews and pastries from Sprout Artisan Bakery.
