Instantly likeable... mmdeli

From the moment I came into this bright blue, friendly deli at 610 Mansfield Road in Sherwood, Nottingham, I felt at home. I spoke to Janet the owner, who must have the most warm and welcoming smile in Nottingham, about my blog, and asked if I could take a few photos and then I ordered a coffee and sat and watched people going by in the pouring rain. I also amused myself with thoughts of the dog hairdressers across the road. Must get myself a poodle perm sometime.
Looking at their website at http://www.mmdeli.co.uk/ the main aim of the shop is to be constantly supplying exciting and quality products to our customers. Apart from that, they insist on providing quality, consistency and quantity in whatever shape or form, be it a sandwich, a cup of coffee, a caramel square or some nice juicy olives. They offer a friendly, efficient service to all customers - business, regulars & first time visitors. They also offer a catering service for businesses & random parties. Everything they stock is ethical and fairly traded.


I loved their clause that 'If a supermarket stocks it then we probably don’t.' and 'If you’re looking for something normal and predictable then you’re in the wrong place, sorry!In other words if it’s abnormal and unusual and weird then we make extra effort to stock it.'


They have an anniversary celebration coming up early April and if you are in the Nottingham area and on Facebook sign yourself up!

A "poodle perm" might be costly as they'd have to add a search fee!

Sorry - I couldn't resist that one.

Seriously - the blog is coming along great - your enjoyment shines through each piece.

Always worth a visit; you might also find them at some of the city's events - just look out for their trailer.
