Im quite a big fan of Greggs and often pop in for my lunch if I am out shopping and need a bite too eat. However I can't say I go all the time as it is not number 1 on my list of bakeries, but still it is a treat and the smells of the shop, and taste of the food is enough to send you to
Greggs is a very popular bakery, well the one I go to is, and the queues are often really long, sometimes to the back of the shop. However, this is not always a bad thing for me as I sometimes need up to ten minutes to decided what I'd like to buy, which, is usually quite alot.
Service in Greggs is usually very good, and quick, but occasionally you get the odd young trainee who has no clue what they are doing and couldn't butter a piece of bread if there life depended on it. Apart from these odd occasions, the people who work in the shop are usually really friendly and more than happy to help you and recommend you what to indulge in.Service in Greggs is usually very good, and quick, but occasionally you get the odd young trainee who has no clue what they are doing and couldn't butter a piece of bread if there life depended on it.

On the occasions I visit Greggs I usually opt for one of there famous Sausage rolls. YUM! Just thinking about them makes my mouth water. Greggs sausage rolls are famous around our town, and I'm not surprised as there so delicious. You can buy the sausage rolls either hot or cold, you just have too ask. The pastry on the sausage rolls is almost butter-like, but not too much. The pastry is very flaky and can often leave you with a trail of crumbs down your top, but that's okay because it means you pick them off and shovel them into your mouth. Once you have bitten through the pastry, you hit the sausage- this can be either hot or cold. I personally prefer them hot. The sausage has a very "meaty" taste, and tastes very "real" unlike some others i have bought. I would definitely recommend these.
If, after my sausage roll I'm treating myself to a cake, I usually opt for a fudge doughnut. I don't know why they are called fudge doughnuts as there is no fudge on it (i don't think). It is a custard filled doughnut with yellow icing on top. However it actually does have a very fudgy taste to it. Unfortunately these doughnuts are extremely more-ish, and once you have finished one, you will find yourself wanting another. It wouldn't break the bank having more than one though, because in my opinion 39p for a good quality doughnut like this is super! Much recommended.
Greggs offers a wide variety of savoury and sweet treats. One of these being there sandwiches. Greggs offer a wide variety of different sandwiches. You can buy these pre-packed, these include the traditional fillings, such as chicken mayonaise, tuna and sweetcorn, cheese and ham etc..to more unusual combinations. You can also, if i am right in thinking, request a ready made sandwich where you can get any fillings you like in either a sandwich or a roll.
