Great place to grab a sandwich at lunch time. Sandwiches made to order from a good selection of ingredients and at very reasonable prices. The staff are incredibly friendly too!

Cheapest place I know in the covered market. (Just inside the entrance.) Always friendly, always good. Coffee, sandwiches, salads, pies, baguettes… Try the lunchtime port-in-a-bap with onions and apple sauce.
