What looks from the street like a run-of-the-mill sandwich shop turns out to hide a series of relaxed rooms, finishing in french windows that open on to a patio garden shaded by vines and a fig tree. The menu is as deceptively extensive as the interior, starting with weekday brunchy breakfasts, moving on to well-dressed lunchtime salads made to order, daily specials, panini, quiche, soup, and burger and chips.

Sandwiches run the gamut of staples, from tuna melt to chicken and bacon, but check out the specials board for more interesting fillings, such as stilton with walnut and pear, or a classic reubens. There are also thick milkshakes, made with real fruit, smoothies, and own-baked cakes and pastries. In the evenings, Johansson’s transforms from café into relaxed restaurant and starts to live up to its Scandinavian name with dishes such as cured salmon, reindeer terrine, own-roasted ham and a lot of fish.

I approached the owner recently to quote for large party (25). I had a fixed budget & asked for our group to be seated together. An advance menu of 3 courses with meat/fish/veg options was sent to me for my approval. We were very well accommodated and catered for: everyone loved their choice of dish, in particular the salmon terrine, slow roasted lamb and chocolate desserts. Will definitely visit there again for top quality, tasty food and dedicated service. Yum!
