My friend and I had lunch here at the weekend - it was very busy but the service was still super speedy! We both had hot grilled sandwiches, mine 'Conan the Vegetarian' was absolutely delicious. The only thing to mention is that it is quite pricey - just under £6 for an artisan sandwich but I guess you are paying... More

Lovely family feel to this place, friendly and approachable atmosphere. Would highly recommend. The food is absolutely 5* - I'm a vegetarian and the options are fantastic (and delicious). This shop is always bursting with customers but I have never had to wait too long for food, eating in or taking out. Looking forward to my next sandwich!

This used to be our favourite coffee shop and breakfast haunt... We walked away and came back to see if things had improved, which they haven't.

The environment... More

They do the most inventive sandwiches in Hitchin, if only I could remember to get there early as it is always packed. Hot, delicious sandwiches imaginatively named and very friendly staff. Love it.
