I've been ordering the veg. Loggins pannini for some time now. It's a decent panini; in fact the best among all sandwich shops in and around the area and keeps me from complaining about the really, really small shot-glass size soup cup at £ 2:30/-that invariably prevents me from ordering soup with my panini - which is priced a little...

Often go here because they have a wide selection of lunches - soups and stews served with bread, large range of sandwiches, toasties, cakes and coffees.

Great food, freshly cooked for a good price. The bagels are so packed with filling you need a knife and fork. Service is quick which is impressive considering its cooked fresh to order. A great lunch time treat - we'll be back!

Packed with office workers and tourists in the know, this is not only a find but a genuinely great place. Open from 7 till 3, it aims at the breakfast and lunch trade only, Mon through Fri. Good portions, quick(ish) service and friendly banter.

I had lunch with my classmates at the branch in art school. A blond kitchen lady came to push the chairs into the table behind us. She took our bags then dropped on the ground heavily. My friends and I heard of that, and my friend said there are Macs inside for £2000. She ignored that. After it, we checked... More
