“Perfection always!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

This has got to be one of the best sandwich shops ever! I am not a sandwich person, but they make my wrap/ciabatta just how i like it. ITaking bits out and putting stuff in! It is a very quirky place, with amazing filling choices!The service is just brilliant and always personal, which I like. I go in every now and then and have never had a bad meal or service. Cute, small, friendly place! Definitely reccomended. :)

“Superb Sarnies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is my favourite spot for lunch by a long way. Everything is prepared fresh in front of you and they are more than happy to adapt any one of their fantastic recipes to suit all tastes.

Personally I love their griddled sandwhiches and am particularly partial to the spicy Lord of the Bling and Silience of the Lambs. I've also had their triple deckers and the homemade lasagne and they never disappoint.

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. I always stop by when I'm working in mt Hitchin office, I'm just disappointed I only work their one day a week!

“1st class service/food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Always love a Chilli B. Have specials daily and all freshly made. What more could you want? Recently tried the Bruce Almeaty (Jerk Chicken, mozzarella, peppers and hot chilli sauce) - although my mouth was on fire it was delish!
A favourite of mine is the Moroccan Salad box - but getting to the colder months salad is not the one. Try one of their hot griddle sandwiches, hot jacket potatoes or even their home-made soup. Top marks Shaz and Bill :)
