“Bad food and overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

I have been to the metro cafe a couple of times, for coffee, desert etc… I have always thought that it was a bit overpriced which the quality of food I was getting. Anyhoo the previous times I had been I thought it was just ok; the croissants weren't that fresh for example. However I went for lunch there during the summer and I was shocked on what I got, I had ordered a cheese and Mediterranean vegetable cibbatta sandwich which firstly did not have all the ingredients of a Mediterranean style vegetables, it had a leaf of iceberg lettuce 2 small slices of peppers what looked like a sundried tomato and tiny bit of cheese, I was basically eating bread. The cost of the sandwich was ridiculous; I could have bought 5 sandwiches in Tesco that would have been 100% better tasting.
