Selly Park Deli aren't helping

It must be hard for the independent cafe in a market rapidly being gobbled up by a few corporate giants. Heartening, then, when a new one opens up, like this one did down the road from me recently. I haven't had the pleasure of eating there yet, but don't those baguettes look delicious? Delicious and oddly familiar?


Oh, look at that. They swiped the Subway photo and stuck it right there on their sign.

Of course, I'd hate to see any legal action befall the old Selly Deli (as they should have called it). I'll guess I'll go and have a sandwich tomorrow and see whether it looks anything like the photo, or whether it's a crusty little roll with ham and a lettuce leaf slopped haphazardly inside. Hopes aren't high.

Update: the results

  7. Selly park deli:

    Went in a few weeks ago> I must say it was nothing what I was expecting, the food is proper fresh. I was quite impressed with the price actually if i were to do a comparison against Subway, I would say the deli would win definately against quality and price. (John)

  12. oh what joy to see these lovly devious couple on here not only do they steal images from other companys hard work they also try and sue the lovly couply they brought there house off for 50 thousand pounds and loss of earnings up to 45 thousand pounds.How would such a lovly careing couple be able to do this you may ask? Well first you buy a house from a nice quiet family on a nice quite road make friends with your neighbours "all seems ok " but then u start to lie to the police and council and who ever else will listen to your lies about your neighbours harrassing you and damaging your property.slowly you build a case and call in your legal team for free as you have legal cover insurance upto 100 thousand pounds hand over all your malicious to them.Every time it comes to the point of mediation or a settlement pull out and go for more like a green eyed monster makeing more nonsence up in your asbo book and e-mails to the police and council.not only are they makeing the street suffer with there loud music yapping dog are verble abuse to there neighbours in hope of a reaction they are spoiling a lovly couples life with there claim.
    ENJOY YOUR CAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
