If the queue outside every Monday-Friday, doesn't confirm this as the greatest lunch spot in Cardiff.. The incredible Baguettes do, the Friday Indian special is just that. Highly recommend it. Also anything with Salami Crackling, or the beef and peppercorn sauce special is also delicious. Great service and staff are so attentive and friendly.
Greatest sandwiches in Cardiff. Really fresh ingredients and tastyyy! There is always queue that makes it difficult to enjoy as lunch break, but it's a great choice for days off.
I've visited this place several times, usually have the number 16, shown in the picture, which is absolutely delicious! It is takaway only, and despite how many other places there are around that sell foodstuffs, there is normally a queue. This goes down quickly I'm happy to say & the team that own/work there are always friendly & efficient. It is quite simply the nicest baguette I've even eaten, every time I go. :o)
This small sandwich shop based in the Arcades will more than likely have a queue outside, they make it easy to order ahead up to a day in advance, to walk in and pick up to skip the queues.
A large selection to choose from the specials board, tasty fresh ingredients to fill either a white or brown baguette.
Best of the best! All staff work really hard to cater to the huge queues they have on a daily basis. Always friendly, helpful and make you feel a part of the fresh family within 30 seconds of entering the building. Delicious freshly made baguettes with the best and biggest selection in Cardiff. Cakes are fabulous (especially lemon pistachio). Absolute legends!
I tried the baguette sandwich on brown bread and every menu I tried are tasty and fresh! Their baguttes are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, I don't mind eating only the bagutte itself. I don't normally reviewing the food I had but this place is worst it!
These are the best sandwiches in town! Don't be put off by the long queue. It goes very fast and the sandwich is well worth the short wait. The owners are so kind and and the prices are very good for the amount of food and the quality of ingredients.
We are in Cardiff today from the US, visiting for the first time. We arrived at Fresh right before the line started to grow. They were so friendly in this little shop. I had read the excellent reviews before we came, and I was prepared to wait for as long as necessary. I got the #5 chicken bacon avocado baguette and my husband got the smoked salmon cream cheese baguette. My husband decided to try the Dandelion & Burdock soda. We joked with the owners about what it might taste,since we don't have that flavor in the US. I promised to report back. My husband says that at American might think it tastes a lot like bubble gum. I took a sip and I agree. It was good! This was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had in my life!! No matter how long the line is, stand in it! You'll be glad you did. Thank you Fresh the Baguette!!!
A friend took me here earlier this month.
You can tell even as you're taking your first bite that this is going to be good. Even the bread is good !
The fillings were very tasty and very good - and the staff were welcoming and helpful and took great care to avoid the things I am intolerant to.
It's a shame they don't have any space indoors to sit down and eat, but overall I'd say this is my go-to place for lunch in Cardiff.
Don't be put off by the queue - you have to try this.
I look forward to going back next time I'm in Cardiff.
As I arrived early, there was no line. I ordered the today's special (beef with black pepper) and it was outstanding! The price is also affordable.
I am so pleased that I had the chance to try out this popular local sandwich shop while staying in this city.
