Is this Waterloo's finest sandwich maker?

Freshcut’s firecracker chicken is our favourite sandwich filling in the whole of Waterloo – if not the world.

We’re still not sure of its exact ingredients, but we know it tastes stupendous, with just the right amount of jalapeno kick to liven up even the dullest Monday lunchtime.

Even its name is brilliant. Firecracker. Makes your ham and tomato roll sound dull, does it not?

Other fillings worth checking out include the minted lamb and barbecue chicken, and if you do pop in make sure you say hello to the owner Phod, who is fond of a bit of banter over the counter.

Phod also uses the café to showcase the work of up and coming artists, and the café’s walls are decorated with interesting paintings as well as signed photos of local theatre productions.

Our little known fact about Freshcut:
Phod became front page news (and a radio star) when he began offering discounts to customers who told him a joke.
