The original.

the first saloon we opened and as thriving as the others. with outside seating on the South facing decking you can be sure of a warm reception. Hugely popular with beach users as the Beach is a short stroll away it attracts a wide range of folk and is always ‘interesting’. The best coffee shop as you head to Sandbanks you simply must stop here for your fix before hitting the beach. Ample free parking in the side roads and a huge car park 50 yards away for only 50p for an hour.. wow.

brewing on a trusty Marzocco PB5 with mythos and Mazzer E grinders alongside. Don’t worry your coffees’ on it way shortly with each one as good as the last.. we never compromise on quality.. however busy we are. ever.

We are 2 miles from the train station.

Our coffee

brewing great coffee is a skill. years of practice and training. we are very proud to be working with La Marzocco Italy who, in our opinion, manufacture the finest espresso machines. stabled with Nuova Simonelli Mythos and Mazzer e grinders we are to be taken very seriously. we are armed. and dangerous.

we are lucky enough to work with ORIGIN coffee. our coffee partners for over a decade we love their ethical approach and their dedication to roasting. roasting many tonnes of coffee for us each year their consistency is outstanding. we are a great TEAM.

remember though. the coffee’s only as good as the person making it. and we are the best. all of our baristas have been through our dedicated ‘brew room’ training facility and we won’t let em loose on you until we’re happy you’ll be happy. it’s all about everyone being happy.

Our food

at the saloon we make our own food. it’s why it’s so tasty. our kitchen in Old Town Poole is headed up by Lou who has years of experience under her belt and has a great understanding of tasty, affordable, on trend food. wherever possible we use local suppliers such as Derek at Curtis butchers in Wareham. we love to keep it local. always have. Lou is often seen buzzing around in our little Saloon van between the stores.. give her a wave if you see her..

the Baking Room.. for those of you that frequent our Canford Cliffs saloon you’ll probably have seen our little baking kitchen to the rear. run by our baker who just loves to bake and is responsible for the bakes and cakes you’ll see across our stores. the infamous vegan banana bread, savoury muffins, chocolate orange brownies, florentines.. she does ‘em all and is constantly developing new recipes keeping the Saloon out in front of the competition.

remember we’re a speciality coffee shop, not a cafe. the baristas are flat out brewing awesome coffee but they do have time to make our FAMOUS ripe avocado on sourdough with fresh lime, chilli flakes, sea salt and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.. if you haven’t tried it you should. today.
