Came in based on the reviews and we're not disappointed. Delicious hot sandwiches with homemade fillings (and interesting names, see review title), good tea and coffee and friendly staff. Restaurant was busy, but the turnaround was quick and waiting times were short considering the quality of the food.

Great choice of breads and lovely fillings. Good coffee. Busy in the lounge so sat on the bar stools in the take away area where the service was very quick and friendly.

Third time I've been in the past few years. Yummy little place with a good choice of sandwiches and everything seems pretty fresh. A cute little venue and lots of choice of teas/coffees and other drinks.

Quirky names for the sandwiches. Classy food. Relaxed atmosphere. A bit crowded and cannot always get a table as it is too popular, with good reason. Nothing not to like.

Texas Chain Saw Moussaka with homemade coleslaw on the side is a firm favourite. Great value, quality food.

This is a lovely, quirky sandwich bar with space to sit but also a separate take away zone. There was a great selection of sandwiches with interesting names (named after famous cities) and fillings to match. You could also create your own sandwich with many fillings to choose from. The staff were great and got us seated straight away! Can't... More
