This is the best sandwich bar in Wales and I have been to a few. Introduced the rest of the family to the lunchtime gem. Highly recommend the chicken mayo rocket onion baguette with salami crackling, amazing!

The place has a queue every day of the week, and people will 100% wait 30 mins for it. If that doesn't say something, not sure what does!! Brownies are to die for, and Gareth & co are amazing people.

I’ve been coming to Fresh for over a year now and every single time they do not disappoint. Amazingly friendly service, brilliant food and huge selection. The best sandwiches in Cardiff and they’ll have me as a loyal customer for the foreseeable future.
