What the people say!
With Mr Christian's new al fresco option luring sun worshippers to its stacked shelves of goodies, there is no excuse to get down to Elgin Crescent's most delicious delicatessen. A new addition to the menu is seared tuna with sesame seeds, ginger and Asian dressing; pop next door to Jeroboams for something to savour with it - either a rich white, like a 2007 Moss Wood chardonnay from Margaret River (£23.50), or light red; try a 2007 Robert Groffier Bourgogne Passetoutgrain (£15.95).

Now Mr. Christians is certainly not your bargain basement delicatessen. You will pay here but you will pay for quality. They have anything from cheeses, pastries, cupcakes, bread and nick nacks to water and butter.
Go there, try some of their cheese and tell me it is not fantastic. I dare you. Ryan
Ooooh this little place is good enough to eat! They sell an amazing and delicious range of cakes, cookies and fresh bread out front with cheeses, anti-pasti and meats inside. Plus loads of beautifully packaged stuff for the cupboards. Lucy
