After a recommendation we decided to do the short walk up the hill. Delightful place with a great selection of paninis, sandwiches and cakes.

After reading reviews on tripadvisor I took my Mam to Claypath Deli today. A "grinder" sandwich (goats cheese, sun ripened tomato and olives), veggie platter (Goats cheese salad, hummus, olives, hallomi, bread and oil and sun ripened tomato), coffee (good quality americano) and can of pop (san pelligrino) came to £12.65. We shared everything and I was more than full.... More

Had a very good lunch-would go back in a heart beat. Nice atmosphere. It's a little bit of a walk from the square.

Visited this cafe on the recommendation of our son - excellent choice. What a lovely relaxed little place. Food was simply delicious, I had the Spanish sandwich - flavours were outstanding, husband had the pastrami and loved it and our son opted for what he describes as the best bacon sandwich even. Coffee was also excellent. Really pleasant, friendly staff.... More

I have to admit that the atmosphere is good, not amazing but good enough for lunch time; however I visited the place twice (the first time I had the chorizo sandwich and the second one I had the spanish ham sandwich) and both times I experienced terrible burning sensation in stomach and being sick. It's a local independent coffee shop... More
