Update – we are still making cakes in-store but our daily sandwiches are on hold through lockdown – this is helping us keep up with other aspects of the business and appreciate customers patience. We look forward to getting back to doing daily sandwiches soon.
We have always prepared takeaway food on-site. And when we first opened we had little more than a sandwich counter. In fact we only had about 800 pounds worth of stock. And our takeaway foods helped us get established as a business.
Takeaway made in-store
We’ve grown steadily as a business since those far off days. But we’ve always continued to make takeaway food in-store. We have always aimed to offer takeaway food which is more nutritious and healthier than what is usually on offer on the high street. And we have always tried to offer it at an affordable price to our customers. Our golden rules have been that everything is made by hand in-store. And that we use the shop as a larder for everything we make for our deli counter.
Because what you see on the shelves is what goes into our sandwiches, our flapjacks and our cakes. The sheer quality of ingredients alone does make things a little easier for us with our takeaway service. But we have also built up our own recipe book over the years. As well as developing an appreciation for what our customers enjoy.
Sandwiches and Cakes
Our Sandwiches are made fresh by hand every morning with organic bread, fresh organic salad and a varieties of fillings picked from around the shop. Our smoked cuddy’s cave and red onion marmalade sandwich made it into the guardian good food guide. And we have dairy free and gluten free cakes. We make our own brownies and polenta cake. Our cakes always use organic ingredients.
Our takeaway foods are a great place to start if you are interested to discover our approach. Lunchtime is a good time and grab a sandwich. And a lot of our customers often as for to a bit of our cake at the end of their shop.
