Mike Willmott's review
Capers, on the Welsh side of Welsh Bridge, in the fiercely independent Little Borough of Shrewsbury, has old world charm. The mark on the door shows where the floods came up to in 2000. But inside, although everything is busy, there is never panic. All is friendliness, fostering the importance of the individual.It seems Elaine has a photographic memory of the names of all former customers, and their quirky tastes. Because Elaine is Black Country to the core, and Ian Middle English down to his vocal chords (ex-chorister of Lichfield Cathedral) and because they live on the Marches - the Welsh/English Border - their expert sourcing of food-stuffs is magnificent: ethical, without the preaching, in an ambience with the local papers and the 20P I -paper that makes every customer a friend, and the parting with pennies for good food and drinks a satisfying pleasure. I know - I go for my first coffee at opening time 9 am, and share in the pleasure of all the searchers after the essential pleasures of life: quality food, quality drink, surprising bargains, but most important - good company.
Cross over Welsh Bridge into Frankwell and turn right towards the new Theatre Severn, on the opposite side of the road is Capers Sandwich shop. The chalk board menu on the wall is refreshingly simple. You could choose from their basic range which includes the usual turkey, ham, cheese, etc, or from a slightly more exotic and more expensive deli range. There were a number of breads available too which are all baked in Shropshire. The owners are passionate about local food and use local suppliers.
I eat here about once a month and the sandwiches are consistently delicious, definitely up there with the top couple of sandwich shops in Shrewsbury. Watch out for the cakes too, hands down the best chocolate brownie in Shrewsbury.
Found Capers whilst trying to navigate my way around Shrewsbury being new to the town centre. Working here so looking for a quality sandwich shop.
Found exactly that here, friendly and welcoming as well as lots of choice for sandwiches and cappucinno to rival the non tax paying not to be mentioned company we all know and used to love.
See you again very soon Capers!
Deryn O'Sullivan 's review
The best in town by a mile. And I usually walk about a mile to get there. Staff are friendly, attentive, and clearly capable. No delishop snobbery here like some places in town. Just honest food at a decent price. You can now sit in at Capers making it a perfect respite from the cold: I would also recommend the hot fresh Soup of the Day to that end. Superb!
Laura Clarke's review
had the smoked salmon and goats cheese roll from here twice - both times delicious - the crisps they do are also gorgeous - love the little paper bags they give your goodies in - it is just round the corner from my house - so all in all win:win - close by and tasty!
Jane D's review
A great deli, with sandwiches that rival American deli sandwiches. I have been looking for a sandwich shop like this for years. Great combinations, freshly prepared. This is what a sandwich should be. Im glad they opened in Shrewsbury.
