I saw this on the BBC news website bbc.co.uk/new…662.

Caffix is a new cafe selling food and drink for a £1 in central London. Just hope they start having more cafes around the country!

Anywhere selling for that price should get a good review.
What a great deal anywhere, but in the middle of London, it's fantastic. I hope it works well for them.
Just seen the link on the BBC.
Voted hot especially for London.
Let's be honest, the mark-ups that the likes of Caffe Nero, Starbucks and Costa apply to their prices are absolutely ridiculous (and most of those still don't pay their taxes...) This is good, honest pricing and I hope this venture does really well!
It's £1 for half a sandwich though. You can get full whole sandwiches for around £2 in Tesco or Sainsburys, so this doesn't seem like a fantastic price, more of a gimmick really.
Since when is advertisement allowed in here? Can I potoo all the poundland "deals" in here too?

...do you understand the concept of HUKD
The sandwiches look alot better than the ones you get from the supermarkets, but knowing London, because it's a pound people will avoid.

And Caffé Nero charge around £4.29 for most of their paninis, so you could buy four half sandwiches in here and still not be charged as much as most coffee shops.

If we're working on the theory of 'you can get a sandwich cheaper elsewhere' well, buy a loaf of bread, some spread, some fillings and voila, make it yourself. You could probably make around 12 sandwiches for less than the price of one Nero panini!

You're comparing a coffee shop to a supermarket, two different things for different times (want to sit somewhere and people watch while you drink your hot beverage and eat your sandwich = coffee shop, want to grab something to eat on the bus home from work, supermarket).

​oh okay I didn't realise it was a sit down place. Yes compared to the competition then it is good. I do actually work in central London so may give it a try next time I'm not having a supermarket sandwich
Looks great, I really hope they open places outside of London.
My colleagues and I go there all the time. You can't compare the supermarket sandwiches which are full of mayo and made in a factory - which means old! Yes Caffix do half sandwiches but they are generously filled and made every day. I see them re stocking the fridges as they have a kitchen onsite. My favourite thing about caffix is I can mix and match and it is still cheaper and tastier than pret. I never say no to a £1 coffee!
Do they sell the same range throughout the day?
Yer, we can read the BBC website and watch TV as well.
Portions are smaller than standard, however they provide much better value and quality than the vast majority of their competitors.
I bet it's really difficult to get a table & the queue's must be massive. Heat added.
