Great choice of sandwiches!

Lovely sandwiches and friendly service. They have a lot of choices of sandwiches and I think the toughest bit is having to choose which sandwich you want. It's a shame the cafe only has a few tables that are accessible to buggys as can be a bit tricky getting up and down stairs. The cafe is... read more

We visited Chilli Banana for the first time, wow! everything so nice, fresh and tasty, the staff (owners) were friendly and welcoming, the menu was mouth watering, we will be returning as I think I would like to make my way through the varied and tempting menu, it may take some time but will be worth it. love it !!

I visit this gorgeous place twice a month and it is always a pleasure. On my most recent visit I enjoyed a 'starsky and hutch' ciabatta and shared the most delicious cake - a chocolate and peanut butter slice from New York! The owners are always friendly and the staff are lovely too. I just bloody love it.

Enjoyed great fresh hot griddle sandwiches with lovely combination of ingredients with husband, in their little garden in the sun yesterday. Had heard good things about here and very impressed and will be visiting again soon. Lovely staff, good service. Reasonable prices.

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,... 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
