    Do you have these where you live?

    Where i'm from (chesterfield) there are loads of them, and all the surrounding towns and villages seem to have them, however when i've been to other places round the country they seem to not have them

    So, where do you live & do you have cob shops? (if you dont know what a cob is, its a midland word for roll/bun/bap/whatever you call them where you are from. Basically a sandwich, but not on sliced bread!

    As in, real cheese, fresh bread, fresh veg, not a 'conveyor belt' way of making them. oh and a cheese & ham cob is about 1.70 for a large instead of 4.00 or whatever expensive stupid amount it is in subway!!

    Ok I was joking if you couldn't tell and why there is one very near by! However it is free and goes by the name of "the kitchen".

    Yes there are...
    There's certainly a few in Enfield (North London) where I live
    but they tend to make normal sandwiches as well...
    Fianini's is great But I don't think there's more than one of them? and because of food prices going up it's waaay expensive now...like 3.20 for a chicken, bacon and avocado sandwich...yet soooo good! *mmmmm* want sandwich now

    Ohh, none down south then!

    Also, 'schwarz' in your signature really stood out to me - me and my bf call kisses 'schwars', because that's the sound we think they make!

    Bit odd that it means 'black' in German though lol.

    Imperial College students know the joys of The Sandwich Shop on Gloucester Road. Small, cramped, but with infinite variations on the humble sandwich served in sliced bread, baguettes, rolls or any other kind of bread medium, and lots of other hot food like noodles, pizza, fresh chips. Massively cheap too.

    Don't forget the free apple with every order.

    Another Derbyshire lass here so you know what my answer is going to be... yep! Although we have them in Edinburgh too but they're abit more posh than at home. But obviously they're not called cob shops as cob is a really local Derbys/Notts word.

    Hmm... usually you get a free treat from the box by the till at the end, although it's not always an apple - it can be a banana or a bag of crisps. Sometimes they run out

    In York there are a couple of brilliant sandwich shops which a frequently visited!

    One is 'Brown's' in Heslington Village, which open at 8.30am, and are sold out of of sandwiches by midday. They make all the bread from scratch - if you get there early enough it's warm still Their Cheese and Ham with Mayo is absolutely amazing,.

    The other is 'Mr £andwich' which always have fresh from scratch sandwiches and are good value, hence '£' in 'Sandwich'!
