We were recommended Chilli B by family and were not disappointed. Great sandwiches (we had a Manhatten and a Pacific Heights) and cake (carrot cake). A very convivial atmosphere. Clearly very popular. Will definitely visit again.

I don't know but I'd be surprised if it wasn't. It'd be a good idea to ring them to check. Sorry for not replying sooner :)
