The best fast food you can find

I love chilli b's and try to go at least once a week, it's fast it's fun and full of flavour. Personal fav is the starsky and hutch or the chilli jacket. Try it, you'll love it

Each time I have used the cafe the service has always been excellent. The coffees are also great as is the food. A really well thought out menu( with great names). The decor is also excellent.

Visited a few times as a couple and also as a family with two young daughters. The husband loves his bacon and 'the stack' doesn't disappoint. The American pancakes are delicious, loved by myself and the girls. It's rapidly becoming the place for family Beswick's Saturday morning breakfast.

Just popped in to have a sandwich and not only was the food excellent (fresh, tasty and delicious) but the atmosphere was really nice too. Ended up having a really nice chat with the owners and can highly recommend it!

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. Great staff and a lovely ambiance of soul and style smash head first into a greasy spoon style dining experience. Truck stop produce at best, which is unbelievably disappointing in every way. The environment... More
