Young and coffee in varying degrees, Kat also says stuff @ThoroughlyMode

What is it about shops/ cafes/ restaurants that specialise in sausages having suggestive names? When you look up "Banger Bros." on the internet you'll need to opt for the second site that comes up in your query rather than the first (but I've saved you the trouble by including a link – trust me, you'll thank me.). The Banger Bros. I'm talking about is very much the right kind of wholesome and tasty – their logo says they have exceptional sausages and I think that's a fair call.
There are a few things that the Bros. Do particularly well. One of them is that their little cafe is sort of like a chippy for bangers. They have a few chairs and tables, but it's mostly kitchen and counter. And they'll make your meal up fresh for you and pack it up to go whether you're staying or going – all condiments are on the side of the counter, so you can dress your meal – simple!
The meals on offer are, obviously, sausage based. A selection of the best the sausage world can offer, from local boy The Cumberland, to far off Chicken Tikkas, to exotic Moroccan lamb merquez, to spicy Chorizo, to 'smoky' Polish to vegetarian. And they're not just serving your the 'bare bones' as it were, their sausages come in the right sort of a bun to compliment their style and heritage, with the right sort of garnishes. They might have exotic flavours, but these bad boys are all locally sourced from a selection of British farms. The 'meal deal' option, and there always is one, includes Belgian frites and a drink for £2 more.
As well as the Portobello store – which has fantastic astro-turf covered benches outside so you feel like you're really at a picnic – they also have stores in Putney, London Bridge, Euston and Victoria.
