Took my friend visiting Canterbury here for lunch. Hadn't tried it before - am usually more of safe choice with the standard chains - but I wanted her to eat somewhere she couldn't in London and I'm so glad I did. This place has a great location in the centre of town. It's a really well presented, nicely done place that serves local produce at affordable which is a family run business. It's not everytime you get to say that.
The food is good here.
There's a good range of sandwiches and it does cater some decent vegetarian options too. Some sound quite standard and I went for their version of ham and cheese (local produce) with caramelised onions. I didn't expect too much for a lunch deal of £5 with choice of cool/hot beverage and locally sourced kent crisps. It was a really delicious sandwich. Each component was actually really lovely from the texture of the bread to the thick slice cheese and the quality-feeling ham. Plus those caramelised onions really made the difference. I definitely wouldn't mind having that sandwich again.
I can't comment on their other breakfast/brunch type dishes but I'd be intrigued to try them. The outdoor seating is nice, although be careful the benches are a bit wobbly - if that's the worse thing though it's hardly much to complain about.
The great thing about this place is it's regional and tasty but at the same time you feel that satisfying feeling of supporting a very good family run independent business. Hurrah.
Excellent because: great sandwiches, affordable price, central location, locally sourced & family run
