THERE’S nothing like good old fashioned value for money.
Which is why Rita’s Pantry, an unassuming sandwich shop in Sheffield city centre, takes some beating.
Forget fancy frontages and bespoke decor.
This is a shop which concentrates on giving customers what they want – a hearty sandwich with a generous filling.
Whether you’re an early bird requiring breakfast or a lunch-time gannet in need of satisfaction, this is the place for you.
There’s a breakfast service which starts at 6.30am and offers bacon, egg and sausage sandwiches – or any variation of this – plus a decent round of toast.
And there are specials every day, whether its roast pork, beef or a pie, which are served from 11.30am.
All are delicious with stuffing, apple sauce or relishes on offer.
It reminds you of a time when little shops where there when you needed and did what you wanted.
Rita’s continues this proud tradition and it clearly works because the shop is always busy.
So far, so very good and the good offers just keep on coming.
All the cold sandwiches are of a good size and unless you haven’t eaten for a week, Rita’s will satisfy you.
The variety of fillings is what you would expect and there’s a selection of breads to choose from.
The menu also includes baked potatoes with all the standard fillings, boxed salads and a good selection of crisps, yoghurts, fruit, buns and cake.
Tea, coffee, soup and hot chocolate are served.
So search out this little gem and get a taste of great value from staff who are only too willing to help.
