Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Filled french stick, fresh bread and ingredients. Very well filled and very tasty. Lovely ambience, friendly staff and chatty patrons. A real gem. The chocolate brownies matched the quality of the sandwich. ( Just had a look at a bad review, the French stick didn't...fit in their mouth, had to laugh)More

The sandwich bar does the best baguettes ever, no matter what filling you have they are always delicious and reasonably priced. There has been a queue the last few times, so you may need to wait, but it is worth it! Always greeted with a...smile and a bit of banter! If you haven’t visited here yet, you need to try it, whether you’re a local or a visitor 🙂More

I was welcomed by a lovely French man who had such a positive and lovely vibe. I ordered a salmon and cucumber baguette; the bread was so incredible, every bite gave me a warm glowing feeling inside and, the texture and taste was exquisite. I...could not find any flaws and it’s one of the best baguettes I’ve had so far. If you’re in Canterbury, give it a go and you will not be disappointed.More

We wanted a sandwich to take with us to eat. There are only 2 chairs outside and none inside. Our smoked salmon, creme cheese and cucumber sandwich on white was freshly made as we waited and very tasty indeed. We also bought a small pot...of Pringles to go with it.More

The Girlfriend and I visited this shop based on the recommendations from Trip Advisor and it lived up to our expectations. She had a Tuna Salad Sandwich and I had a Croque Monsieur. Both outstanding, freshly prepared in front of us and for £8.90 it...was incredible value for money. Along with the Charming Parisian owner this was a wonderful experience.More

Popped in with a friend looking for something tasty for breakfast saw that they had Croque Monsieurs on the menu, ordered two but as it was early the lovely owner had yet to make his bechemel. 15 minutes later and I’m eating the tastiest, freshest...crouque monsieur I’ve ever eaten. Super friendly service and fantastic food all at bargain price. Would recommend to anyone looking for tasty affordable food.More

I asked for a baguette with a filling combination which was not as standard on the menu. This was absolutely no problem for Matt who made me and my husband the most wonderful baguette; I found him extremely helpful and he clearly takes pride in...providing an excellent service and good food. I cannot recommend this Sandwich Bar highly enough!More

We were in Canterbury on a short break and found this absolute gem on Trip advisor. It met and exceeded our expectations! Firstly the food is fabulous, the service is exceptional. Lauren the owner is a lovely French gentleman and it just feels like youve...wandered into a cafe in Paris. The customers who came in on the 2 mornings we visited were obviously regulars, Lauren let us try some of his croissants free of charge which was very kind! I can't recommend this place highly enough, go try and enjoy!More
