Dogs and cake. I mean what could be better? I always pictured the perfect cake-eating scenario as a fat slab of cake sitting alongside a fancy-pants latte with a cute little design sitting perfectly in the froth. But this dog friendly coffee house has made cake dates with your dog socially acceptable and taken the perfect cake-eating scenario to a whole new level.
Salami and Co nestled in alongside the hustle and bustle of Otley’s market square in 2016. Their minimalistic but somehow homely interior immediately puts you at ease as you walk through the door. I have visited Salami and Co on a number of occasions (sometimes as dog walker but more often than not, dog stalker) and tried a number of things from their absolutely divine brunch menu.
I know my posts often focus in on the cake but I have to mention their beautiful brunch options. They have a small but perfectly crafted menu of dishes and they are always so pretty, you almost don’t want to eat them. Thankfully, they are just as tasty as they look and this is why Salami and Co is definitely one of my favourite brunch spots. All their ingredients are locally sourced and are lovingly put together to make something really special. I opted for this smoked salmon dish and the charcoal and citrus flavours that sit beside it really made it unique. And just look how pretty it is!
And the cakes were just as delicious. My boyfriend and I were planning on sharing a cake but just couldn’t decide between these two beauties so of course, ordered both. My favourite was this chocolate and vanilla layer cake, smothered in pistachio buttercream and sandwiched together with a generous layer of jam. Yum yum yum.
For such a large layer cake, I was almost expecting it to be a little dry but this cake was everything a cake should be and much much more. It was moist and packed full of flavour and even though it was a hugeeee slice, I polished off every little crumb because it was just so moreish.
The lemon and rose cake was equally tasty but the stand out cake for me was the chocolate number just because chocolate for me will always trump everything else.
All the food at Salami and Co is put together with so much love and attention and it really shows when you are served such deliciousness every single time. The coffee house itself has such a lovely welcoming feel and what could be better than sharing your experience with some seriously cute canines!
If you have a pup, you definitely need to treat them to a visit as they are treated like the ultimate VIPs and there’s a whole menu created just for your little furry friends.
Next time you are in the area make sure you pop in here and experience Salami and Co for yourself. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
