Herne Hill’s great Mimosa Café has won Gold in the Independent Café Sandwich Retailer category of this year’s Sammies. Judged by a panel of industry experts for the British Sandwich and Food to go Association’s awards ahead of British Sandwich Week 14-20 May.
Like all great awards programmes, the Sammies covers every aspect of the Sandwich and Food to Go industry with awards for companies large and small. There is recognition for everything from Technical Excellence to Marketing and Retail. This year for the first time, there is a category specifically for new independent retailers.
The mystery shop judges visited mimosa and, aside from scoring top marks in almost every aspect of the report, the judges’ comments included: “Very friendly, great décor and menu. Food was of a very high standard. With very attractive and appetising displays of food and excellent service standards, Mimosa is a very worthy winner.”
