“Best sandwich in a long time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

I'd seen a few reviews recommend the cheese and meatball sub and decided to try it even though it's not something I would normally order. I did not regret this - it was amazing. The tastiest meatballs I have ever had with melted provolone and parmesan. My friend had the smoked chicken special which also looked delicious. Staff were very friendly. The only problem I've noticed in this deli on two occasions is the overpowering smell of burnt cheese on entering (maybe they need a stronger extractor fan) and the music was slightly too loud too have a comfortable conversation. Otherwise I would not hesitate to recommend this deli to anyone.

“Best sandwiches on the North side”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Picked up 2 pulled pork sandwiches for takeaway for myself and a friend. The pulled pork was amazing and the ruby slaw was even better. Bread was really fresh and tasty. Although the sandwich was stuffed with ingredients, the bun was too small, could easily have eaten two! They have a small menu, maybe 6 sandwiches to choose from and they do a different special sandwich and soup everyday. Service was excellent as well, all of the staff said hello and goodbye. They take your name when you're ordering and are sure to personally thank you when you're leaving, really nice touch. Can't wait to go back and try their soup!

“Best place for lunch in Dublin 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Been here a couple of times this bank hol weekend as I only live around the corner and was dying to try it but it had only been opened Mon-Fri for a while. Has a limited menu but the quality of the food makes up for that. I just went in to get something for lunch both times and have eaten the 2 cheese & onion melt and the 2 cheese meatball sub (I like my cheese, ok?!). Both were made right in front of me with fresh ingredients and tasted delicious. Had a capuccino both times too, the coffee is really really good. Staff are friendly and very welcoming. I will definitely be a regular! Shame its closed on Sundays.

“Fresh healthy food at a great price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch here today with five colleagues, great "real" sandwiches, great salads and soup. Real, fresh, unprocessed food in a comfy, relaxed atmosphere. I can highly recommend.
