Had lunch here today. Spur of the moment thing. It was absolutely lovely - I had a meal of the specials board, a generous portion it was to, nicely presented and tasted great. Will be going back.

Down a little street off the market square lives this little gem of a sandwich bar. I originally stopped here over 10 years ago on a chance lunchtime hunt for some food and I have been returning regularly ever since. The staff are very friendly and the atmosphere is very hip with a smattering of music to go with your... More

For the foodies out there a visit to Chilli Bs is a must. There is a wonderful menu with mouth watering choices of hot or cold sandwiches all freshly made while you wait. The only problem is just what to eat but that's a problem I can live with! Part is set aside for those who want to sit and... More

Upon entering the sandwich bar all the staff were helpful and friendly, we sat in for the most delicious jacket potato with tuna and homemade coleslaw. We shall definitely visit this establishment again. Highly recommended.

A really lovely couple run this café and have done so for years. They sourced all the furniture, fixtures and fittings themselves and it has a great ambience. It got a name change a few years ago from Chilli Banana to Chilli B's when they did the complete revamp and moved into the next door building too - so that... More

Flipping lovely raspberry and earl grey cake and a lush mocha to go with it. Staff really friendly and a great atmosphere with plush seats. Very much deserves to be number one in Hitchin.

Chilli B's deserves its number 1 restaurant ranking in Hitchin. The griddles are fantastic - there's so much choice. If you like spicy food then I recommend the Lord of Bling. It has a good kick to it.

The food here is inventive and very tasty, the children (6 & 3) and I had 3 different hot panini to takeaway and shared them all between us and they were demolished. This was the 1st time that we have been to Chilli B's and with good service and excellent food we will definitely be returning.
