good value, decent food

There is nothing pretentious about what's on offer, but that's great. Food is freshly prepared and the place is full of local cabbies and workmen, which is always a good sign. Breakfast baguettes were a favourite with the kids.

I love this place, I go here 3-5 times a week at least! cheap sandwiches that are delicious. They'll make your sandwich with cold cuts the way you like but I suggest trying their creations! They are so good. I have a hard time trying new ones because I always want the same thing. Tandoori chicken is my favorite but... More

This is by far the best lunchtime food place in the area, especially if you like mayonnaise which their food is drowned in. Seriously though, the sandwiches are varied and delicious, prices very reasonable and portion sizes huge. Makes a nice change from al the overpriced horrible places in the area.

We ate in and both had a tasty baguette, with the option to be toasted! Very large and was £2.50 for my baguette to eat in so very cheap! Had a large selection of baguettes plus some noodles and drinks and other snacks on offer! Very quick service!

While studying abroad in London, this shop was on the way home from my class and I would stop and get lunch a few times a week! The kebab sandwich and the curry sandwich were my favorites! I loved to grab a sandwich, a drink, and head up to Hyde park (weather permitting) for a picnic. Or head over to... More

Inexpensive, well-prepared sandwiches for breakfast and lunch, with friendly service. What's not to like? I would have liked to try the chicken curry, and some of the other prepared items. Service is quick, but a queue can develop when workmen in the area break for lunch. I'd give it a 5, but it's just a no frills sanswith shop...so a... More

Hey, you, psssttt.....Say you are out and about after visiting the British Museum of Natural History. You are hungry and it's a nice day. Stop by this gen of a sandwich shop, get a baguette sandwich with wonderful fresh ingredients, a drink and head 2 block up to Hyde park for a small picnic. You will have a memorable experience....

Looking for a quick afternoon lunch, I ordered the chicken avocado on baguette for £ 2.50. Amazingly delicious. The baguette was fresh, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. The sandwiches are chicken-salad-ish so I was worried about the common mayo-over-board. I was so happy by the seasoning in the dressing. The avocado was ripe and soft. They had... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
