Great sandwiches

No where else I go for a sandwich in town, queue can be a bit of a pain with people taking far too long to decide but the wait is worth it.

Went there for breakfast, which is supposed to run until 12.00 according to sign, 11.30 according to the menu, and we were told at 11.20 that they no longer did breakfast. Then you are handed over a menu, but are still expected to go to he bar to place your order, and pay for it in advance. There is so... More

If you had any concerns about overstaffing or lack... More

I tend to get the same thing most times....it's always amazing. Conan the vegetarian tortilla wrap with added jalepiños. Excellent value. Had the joy of sitting in the secret garden yesterday too.

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 lovely though and the... 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 !!
