Set up by Jorge Fernandez (from the Monmouth Coffee Company) and ex-BBC reporter Rick Wells, this self-styled ‘food and wine bar’ has spawned a few offshoots but never fails in its duty to feed office workers, shoppers and tourists with very good sandwiches, salads and soups – not to mention spot-on coffee. It can be a squeeze in the evening, but worthwhile if you fancy sharing a bottle of Catalunyan Auzells with a plate of well-aged Bellota jamón. Italian cured meats are a recent addition to the larder and cheeses come from equally eminent producers, while hot dishes might run from a Devon seafood plate to grilled loin of pork with Manchego cheese. The interiors may be minimal in style – think utilitarian pendant lamps and enticing hams in the window – but this is a ‘great little neighbourhood place’.
