I love this cafe; it's always a joy to walk in as the staff are always friendly and the atmosphere resembles that of a friendly meet-and-greet. I have to admit to having been a bit surprised when I first walked in; an entire wall dedicated to sandwich combinations with a panel dedicated to jacket potatoes and another smaller one for miscellaneous cafe goods. What was this!? However, after noting they served peanut butter and banana sandwiches, I was quickly converted; not many establishments feel the peanut butter is worth serving and it's nice to see a change. Their sandwiches are amazing. The proportions are perfect in both sweet and savory, you'll never get that irritating last bite of bread (speaking of which, they have a large selection to choose from) and everything is customizable. If they don't have an ingredient in, they'll offer a substitute instead of flat-out refusing to make the sandwich like other certain places. Of course, with the wide range of sandwich combinations it's easy enough to choose another at a moments notice. Clean, friendly, delicious and inexpensive; what's there not to like?Report this

The food here is basically sandwiches or baked potatoes! It is good food, with a very good selection of fillings, including lots for veggies! i have been concerned once or twice when i have ordered a chicken dish such as coranation chicken, that the chicken was actually Turkey!!!!!!! If it is it really doesn't bother me, but i can't see why it would be, which is why it concerned me! The staff in there are really friendly and helpful, they don't even mind when you are taking a long time to choos your filling!!!!Report this
