Frankie & Tony’s, Newcastle

  • March 28, 2012

Frankie & Tony’s sandwich shops (NE1 8JN) and (NE1 5XN) have long been a favourite of mine – perfect for when you need a quick, filling and reasonably priced bit to eat.

Their range of sandwiches isn’t going to win any awards for originality, but all the classics are represented, and all come under three quid. Nothing too fancy, no fancy gourmet deli ingredients, just big ol’ honest sandwiches that’ll fill you up better than a couple of Gregg’s pasties – and probably cost less given the the recent budget. If you visit the Ridley Place shop, you’ll notice the queue is always out the door and halfway down the street, always a good sign. It’s usually quieter in the shop just off Charlotte Square, but haven’t noticed a difference in the sandwiches.
