Recently visited Chilli Banana for lunch. Had the best sandwich (Pacific Club) I have ever had. This little place is fantastic - friendly and efficient staff and great food at a reasonable price. What more can you ask from a lunch venue?

They stop serving breakfast at 11:30am so be aware of that if you are going for brunch. We got there just in time so we were lucky. Breakfast was simple, straightforward and the coffee was good. They were quite flexible when I requested my eggs to be poached instead of scrambled. A couple more vegetarian options would be nice though.

Visited Chilli B on recommendation and I was not disappointed. They serve illy coffee, which is one of my favourites! Staff friendly, food very good and toilets clean. The atmosphere was just right. Very comfortable and could have stayed even longer than we did!

Lovely lunch!! Really tasty food! Good portions too. High chair was a tad old and worn and they only have 1, but it did the job! The food was delicious and that's what it's all about I guess!!
