Description: Just three doors to the left of Canterbury Cathedral Gate Canteen serves freshly made flatbreads,salads, baguettes, toasties, jacket potatos and daily hot dish / soup. Everything is made to order from freshly prepared ingredients using local suppliers wherever possible. The building dates back to around 1600 and from the windows you can get glimpses of the Cathedral (particularly from the loo !). It is a rather rickety building so you need to be OK with stairs as our seating is over three floors. We provide eat in or take away food and a large variety of hot and cold drinks including smoothies and juice pressed on the premises. Due to popularity we also now serve delicious cream teas.

“Always delicious, fresh food, friendly enthusiastic staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

I have been coming here since the week it opened. I think it has recently changed hands but it is still and has always been excellent. There is a varied and delicious menu with well balanced exiting flavours and ingredients that change seasonally. The food is fresh and healthy. The staff are polite, amiable, helpful and cheerful. The service is fast. It can be a little pricey for a weekday lunch but it a luxury worth treating yourself to. Currently the pulled pork burrito is a winner!

“Best Lunch time wrap and salad in a long time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Myself and my partner and our friends frequently visit this deli sandwich shop
Every time we do we're not disappointed
There is a great range of choice from hot to cold dishes and I would always recommend the Mojo sauce which the canteen use! It's to good for words!
If they sold it by the bottle im sure demand would out run supply
Staff and very friendly and attentive too
Its an all rounder if you're after a quick lunch to eat in or take away
