Difficult to find a table, busy lunchtime restaurant and popular with friends meeting up. I though the service and food were average.

Nice little sandwich bar and cafe next door. Good coffee, nice fillings and friendly staff; do you need anything more law?

Love this place for lunch. Came here on Christmas Eve and they still went out of their way to seat us and take care of us. I'm sure they all wanted to go home but we're made to feel super welcome and not rushed. The staff are lovely and the food is terrific. Always try and come here when we... More

I have visited Chilli B's over the last few years and not once have I had substandard food or service. It's my daughters absolute favourite Hitchin haunt and the level of quality here never fails to impress. Hand on heart, the best smoked salmon and scrambled eggs I've ever had has been here. Exceptional.

Came here for midweek lunch, had a mozzarella/sundried tomato sandwich on ciabatta which was amazing, loads of veggie options which is great! Staff were really lovely. Spotted the pancakes for breakfast so will definitely be back for those!

Hi, We regularly nip into Chilli B's for lunch takeaway or before a road trip as it's friendly staff & tasty menu offers the best sandwiches in Hitchin. My fav is Lord of the Bling - Spicy chicken, mozzarella covered delight 😃 We also like the Tuna baguette and Piri-Piri chicken baguette with homemade coleslaw. Great choice of crisps, sweets...

After giving up dairy for the whole of 2016, I decided my first dairy inclusive meal out in 2017 would have to be at chilli b's for my favourite 'Italian Job' wrap. Everything was amazing as usual; great service, lovely atmosphere and amazing food!! Forgot how amazing the Italian job wrap is so will definitely be returning soon! No wonder... More
