THANK YOU! We love it when our customers share their memories with us of when my parents owned the shop. But just as you said, we haven't changed much over the years, just a few minor tweaks here and there :-) Thank you so much...More

The moment you walk in you'll notice that this place is a cut above a normal sandwich and jacket spud bar, famous for it delicious garlic chicken baguettes, but there are so many other offerings to keep you coming back time and time again.

Been visiting here for many years. Delicious food, friendly staff and good value. The garlic chicken baguette is to die for! Often stop here first for a croissant and coffee before the monthly Southsea market. Best food around.

I'm guessing not as it's a good outlet. Normally they only allow guide dogs and the like. Give them a call on 023 9281 7911 :-)

Description
Established in 1988 as a family business, Andre’s Food Bar is Southsea’s oldest independent sandwich shop. We have been successfully feeding the city for over 30 years and are the place to go for the freshest filled baguettes, croissants and delicious tempting treats. Now being run by the next generation, Andre, the family’s oldest son has worked in the business since he could barely see over the counter, so it’s fair to say he knows his bagels from his baguettes! He’s also the guardian of our many secret recipes, including our famous garlic chicken, the jalapeno quiche and our home-made mayo. He can still be found working in the shop most days so be sure to pop in and say hello! So whether you want a naughty nibble with your morning coffee for breakfast or something on the side with one of our freshly prepared baguettes or homemade salads for lunch, then we’ve got it covered. We’re all about simple, fuss free, fresh food made while you wait, just the way you like.
