Don’t let its strip mall location fool you as Cactus Taverna is one of the best restaurants in Salisbury and boasts one of its most multicultural menus to boot. Considering it has kept guests coming back for more than 20 years, it must be doing something right. Broadly speaking, the menu is Mediterranean but guests can expect cuisines as wide-ranging as Greek, Italian, Spanish and Middle Eastern. Select a number of tapas dishes like baked chorizo, spanakopita, smoked eggplant dip to share with friends and larger plates like the traditional paella with shrimp, mussels, scallops, calamari, fish, clams and saffron rice.
A hidden gem in the heart of Salisbury, café and bakery Acorn Market is quite possibly the city’s best loved lunchtime spot. Choose from a wide range of sandwiches including the signature Pilgrim (roast turkey, cranberry sauce and lettuce on a homemade stuffing roll) and the Jumpin’ Jack panini (chicken breast, caramelized onions, Monterey Jack and chipotle mayo) or opt for a refreshing salad of lettuce, crisp Gala apples, toasted walnuts, bleu cheese crumbles and homemade honey dressing. Don’t leave without picking up a box of Acorn Market’s famous sweet potato biscuits to take home.
