This is a lovely, quirky sandwich bar with space to sit but also a separate take away zone.

Never had a bad sandwich from this place. We used to use them for Business lunches until we moved premises from Hitchin. Definitely recommend. They deliver too!

This is our favourite place for a family breakfast or brunch. Staff are always friendly and they do really great sandwiches. Kids love the pancakes. The fact that it has a garden is great in the summer.
