This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
The distinctive wood façade of the enduring Il Cappuccino hides a cornucopia of deli delights and quality sandwiches. Wraps, pitta pockets, various fresh-tasting breads and rolls can be filled according to individual taste, or pick from the dozen or so wittily named specials – such as the Clatty Pat (referring to the once legendary local disco), or Niagra Viagra (chorizo, gouda and spicy mayonnaise). Breakfast choices range from the upmarket – smoked salmon and cream cheese bagel – to crowd-pleasing rolls with bacon or square sausage. There's good coffee too, and deli produce to take away.
- High point: Reassuringly unchanged for years
- Low point: Can get busy at peak times
