A tasty bite on a budget
If ever you're in Wednesbury, especially near to IKEA, B&Q (near Junction 9) and are feeling a bit peckish, but aren't flushed with money don't despair, there's a brand new place to dine. Jacqui's Kitchen has opened just round the corner from B&Q, decorated in a pale blue, it's a sandwich shop/café.
The sandwiches are freshly prepared, and made to order and delicious. The cooking is done right behind the counter in full view (so you can see what they're doing), there are a lot of hot sandwiches on offer starting at £1.80 up to £2.50. The usual bacon, egg, etc. and an old favourite hot pork and stuffing are on offer.
Extras start from 30p for toast, up to 50p for hash browns, and they also do baked potatoes with different fillings all priced from £2.40-£2.70 and cold sandwiches available from £2.00-£2.70.
For those with a sweet tooth there's home-made bread and butter pudding only 50p. The portions aren't measly either. Muffins are available too in a variety of flavours. Tea is only 50p, and coffee 60p per mug. You can even buy a jar of home-made chutney to take away.
There can't be many places that you can get something to eat and drink at these prices, so if you're ever near Junction 9 M6 and feel a gap in your tummy why not try the new Jacqui's Kitchen, you will not be disappointed.
Open from 7am until 2pm Jacqui's is aimed at truckers and morning people, so get there before it closes in the afternoon.
