the best sandwiches ever!

I love this place. They do the best sandwiches in hitchin. The seating area is very comfortable, and they do have table service. I have not had a bad meal there. The sandwiches are on the pricey side but it's well worth it

All of my friends have been raving on about Chilli B's for a while. So after a long anticipated wait, I had the time to go for lunch the other week.

Food with a difference, sandwiches made as you like them, delicious ingredients, their salads are always interesting and decadent. Their creamy ice coffee is to die for and always friendly atmosphere and staff that go out of their way to accommodate.

I went here for brunch one morning. I'd heard about this place for months. We had to wait for about ten minutes to get a spot. Well worth the wait though. Superb food and friendly, efficient staff.

Having recently been diagnosed Coeliac breakfast out can be a tricky affair with wheat and gluten appearing in nearly everything!! However, it was wonderful to walk into Chilli B's and be told not only did they have GF bread so I could enjoy a scummy bacon sarnie with my hubby but that their coffee syrups were also GF so I...

A great tea room offering a good mix of old favourites and new ideas. The cake selection could do with a revamp as who doesn't love to finish lunch with a slice of heaven!!

Such a lovely little spot for brunch, my son and I had a lovely Saturday brunch here. The staff were attentive and knowledgable about the menu and the food was beautifully presented as well as tasting absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend the cakes and the pancakes and the coffee is good too.

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.
