Can you remember when that exciting new deli opened a few doors along from the Emporium? How eager we all were to see this place take shape and show us some fantastic food?
Standing proudly on Osbourne road sits Andre’s Food Bar, Southsea’s oldest sandwich shop and this week I caught up with co-owner of the business Antony to chat about its history. Antony is the cousin of Andre and they both worked together to revamp the business in 2016 when Andre’s french dad retired, changing the family business name that most people will remember as being La Croissantiere. Having now been open for 2 years it seemed the right time to open a second shop which would actually sit quite close to the original establishment that Andre’s parents had owned in Guildhall Walk.
