We were certainly lucky to fall across this sandwich bar in Cardiff, while exploring the arcades. Brilliant service, very nice people and the best baguettes I've tasted. Great selection of brown and white baguettes and paninis with vegetarian options as well. Overall fantastic.

Fresh! is 'the' best place in Cardiff, possibly the UK, for super tasty baguettes and panini's. Having been a regular for many years, every meal has always been outstanding. Oh, and the desserts are also amazing! Can't get enough of the chocolate brownies.

Stopped today for a baguette. Was about 11am, so no queue! Great service and - I've just discovered - a delicious baguette, filled with cheese, salad and mustard. Yummy!
