This is one of my favourite places to have a nice and affordable lunch in Leicester. They do a wide variety of delicious toasties/melts as well as other options. On sunny days there is a lovely courtyard out the back which makes for a nice environment to enjoy lunch in, away from the busy town. Today I visited Croques and ordered a hawaiian melt with olives instead of jalapenos- no problem to make this change- but when it arrived unfortunately there were also onions in it which I cannot eat and were not listed on the menu. When I raised the issue the member of staff instantly and very kindly offered to make me another, without the onions- demonstrating good customer service. I would certainly recommend this establishment as a lunch time venue.

Great quirky little place tucked up just behind the hustle and bustle of the main town. Croques has a great little buzz to it. Bohemian and chilled, great staff who are friendly and a laugh. Food was amazing, we were spoilt for choice, best wraps I have had with so many fillings to choose from, i went for the on the board special, crispy duck and hoissin sauce with spring onions ....scrumptious !!!!! There are many cafes and sandwich bars on the street Croques is situated on, i'm glad a walked past them all to the allure of the crocodile !!! You should to !!!

Great little cafe for tasty breakfast and lunches. Have an extensive menu although I've asked for combinations not on their menu before and they have happily obliged. Each sandwich or melt comes with a few tortilla chips which is a bonus. You could go a hundred times and have something different and delicious everytime.

I recommend the bacon, Brie and cranberry toastie. Yum!

We were looking for somewhere different for lunch today, and came across Croques on Loseby Lane, Leicester.
The menu was exciting and different, so we decided to stay and eat in.
The food was freshly cooked and delicious and coffees were scummy.
I would suggest you take a visit, as it is great value for money, and everything very tasty.
There is an outside area at the front, also a small garden area.
We will definitely visiting again as we want to try a lot of the menu.
It was a hive of activity in the kitchen area which you can see than is worked articulately.
All the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Must admit makes subways look dull and boring. Always busy and make you anything you want. Small and cramped but guess that's because it's popular! Better than subway and Greg's lol
