Fresh, Royal Arcade

Posted in Reviews by thesandwichclub on February 3, 2011

Last year we took our first visit to Fresh in Royal Arcade.  Impressed by what it had to offer we thought it deserved an updated write up, so much so we’ve been there twice in nearly the same number of weeks.

Tucked away in a tiny space just along from Wally’s Deli. Fresh is consistently very very good, with the owners having a real passion for what they do. They specialise in baguettes (no sandwiches!) and also have a range of paninis, salads, cakes and drinks. The chalk board is crammed with a wide variety of staple fillings as well as some very intriguing  daily specials.

Lunchtimes will often mean a queue out the door and down the arcade but service is very good and you don’t have to wait long. Here’s a sample of what we’ve had from Fresh recently.

Salami, pastrami, caramalised onion, mustard, mayo and salad on brown baguette


Ham, chicken, dill pickles, gherkins, mustard on brown baguette


Friday special (28/01/2011): Asian pork balls panini with super special homemade chilli sauce!

We even got to sample the home made chilli sauce that comprised twelve ingredients whilst waiting for the paninis to toast:

The clubbers were pretty unanimous on the the fact that this was one of THE BEST fillings we have tasted. Fresh do it right, they are friendly, inventive and know what the customer wants. They are one of the best in Cardiff.

    They look incredible. I don’t understand how I’ve never seen this place before.
