What a find! Slightly different menu. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Great for takeaway food. If you are looking for a quick cheap tea then look no further. Gorgeous crab sandwiches!

Have been to Pels many times without disappointment. Both my mother and I are celiacs, and they offer gluten free crepe, panini and pizza options! Very wide range of food and great for lunch to take away or eat in.
