Advantages: cheap and excellent choice
Disadvantages: all mayo or butter on sandwiches
I would be suprised if there was any town that didnt have at least 1 Greggs shop!
Greggs is takeaway bakery shop which sells delicious hot foods, sandwiches and cakes.
Hot foods available include sausage rolls, pasties of various kinds, pies, pizza baguettes, steak bakes and soup which may i had is heinz! In the morning they also sell rolls with sausage or bacon.
Various sandwiches and baguettes are available with different fillings to suit any taste including egg mayo, cheese savoury & cajun chicken to name a few. These are prepared fresh in the bakery and most are prepacked into a fridge.
No bakery would be a bakery without a large selection of cakes and breads baked daily. Cakes range from cream cakes to donuts and empire biscuits to cookies.
Of course Greggs also sells accompianments to their products which include drinks & crisps.
Everything is well presented in the shop and behind protective screens to avoid contanimation. Staff are required to wear a uniform and hair nets whilst serving.
Greggs offer a made to order cake service for special occasion cakes and you can ask for a leaflet when in store.
Everything in Greggs is reasonably priced and of high quality. The cheapest cooked item would probably be the sausage roll.
We have 2 Greggs in our local town and tend to visit there quite alot. My son loves the sausage rolls which is a cheap option for a quick snack when we are out and about. My favourite is the cheese and ham pastie, i dont like it too warm but just warm enough and the empire biscuits are delicious!
Only downside i would say is that all the sandwiches and rolls are made with mayo or butter and i dont like either so can neverbuy these!
Top tip - at Halloween buy a toffee apple lattice as they as so tasty!
Summary: good for lunch
