Good Wholesome and Healthy Food

I have only just realised that all the food they do in exotic breads can also be ordered as a salad, no bread. I can now have great food with Illy coffee or any tea-pig I can think of on a tasty salad. I wish i had known ages ago. Good food, well priced, very friendly staff, laid back atmosphere,... read more

Chilli Banana is THE best sandwich bar I've ever been to. The staff are always friendly even when its busy. There is so much to choose from but my favourite is the Starsky & Hutch Griddle- Cajun Chicken, Emmental Cheese, Sweetcorn, Peppers, Red Onion, Mayo & Sweet Chilli hot griddle ciabatta! Heavenly

I went there with my wife for a breakfast. The American pancakes were excellent! The friendliness of the staff made us feel very welcomed.

I love this place the food is just amazing, very tasty and plenty to choose from, in fact I will find any excuse to get down there. It's easily the best place for lunch in town. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and the coffee is great.

Bill and his family are practically an institution in Hitchin, and offer not only the best sandwiches and toasted ciabattas in town but also the best service. No matter how busy it is (and it can get very busy at lunchtime), you'll have your order taken within seconds of walking through the door, and at most you'll have to wait... More
