This is a very small place making primarily sandwiches at reasonable prices. The owner is a lovely lady who makes delicious brownies and other goodies (e.g. banana bread) on a daily basis.

Great variety of imaginative & standard options. Fresh baguettes, excellent ingredients. Extremely friendly staff. Prices cant be beat. Central but quite location. Best sandwiches around.

This is one of the best sandwich shops around. If you can't decide from the extensive menu the staff are very happy to make suggestions. Good price for great sandwiches. The 2 regular staff are amazing and make the place worth a visit.

Had lunch here en route to an orthodontic appointment with my son. The selection and quality of food is wonderful. Also the staff are very attentive. We'll definitely return next month!

On The Hoof was unknown to me before a colleague recommended it. It sits on a short commercial street a few minutes walk north of City Centre, and it is DEFINITELY worth the walk. The people there are incredibly friendly, treating students, regulars, and visitors...More
