Shop looks good and clean from outside and inside and produce is varied and plentiful.

Drinks are hot (for chocolate and coffee) and the cold drinks cold.

The muffins looked good along with the bagettes.

That's until you take a bite.

The muffins were light and tasty but the pecan and banana contents were only in the top 1cm. (Obviously the extra contents may have made them too heavy?)

As for the bagette, that was just astonishing. The bread was fresh but for a tuna/sweetcorn salad bagette, I just wasn't prepared for the first bite.

The lettuce leaf (one of) the was torn in two and laid along the whole 7" bagette. The extra thin cucumber and beef tomato (tasteless) filled the rest. The tuna was obviously acurately positioned along the front of the bagette for about 1.5cm deep. The back of the bagette had NOTHING but the thin salad. Visually fantastic and mouthwatering. Delivery a void.

They must be making a FORTUNE on one tin of tuna? I'm told a 1kg bag of sweetcorn is 89p in tesco and a 2kg jar of mayo is £1.99. On a quick calculation that's 686% profit for contents based on what I paid. (Didn't take into account the bread itself, so lefts half that for good measure to 343%!)

Only got a poor rating because the wife liked her coffer and the top of the muffin...it would have been less I'm afraid......
