We love this place

It's become our weekend ritual to have lunch at Chilli B's! I love Lord of the Bling, but the specials are always great too. Usually very busy but always worth the wait for a table. Great place for breakfast if you're nursing a hangover too :-D

I just don't get it. The staff/owner was downright rude to several customers including us. We had been waiting for 10 minutes,... More

The title says it all. Haven't actually sat down inside yet but have been countless times for a takeaway lunch. Very friendly staff and the food is perfect!

My son wanted Subway, my daughter wanted Gregg's. I chose Chilli B's and now they keep asking to go back. A great tasty lunch for just a small amount more money. Worth it every time.

Buzzing lunchtime trade and yummy food/cakes. Good place to meet friends as a relaxed atmosphere. Mixed types of customers so caters for many tastes.

All I can say is the sandwiches are great (every time) but the seating is quite poor... As in very cramped and uncomfortable. Always a take out unless there's a good table available which is unlikely in lunch hours.

There are a lot of coffee shops in Hitchin and this is one of the best. The breakfasts are always good and the lunches are freshly made and well priced. Sometimes difficult to get a table especailly at the weekend
