The lunchtime meal deal has become a lifesaver when grabbing a quick bite during a rushed lunch break. Here we have hunted out some of the best offers in Ipswich at the moment.

Costa Coffee lunch deal - £4.95

This summer the popular coffee chain, which has three branches in Queen Street, Carr Street and Westgate Street, is offering a new meal deal for just £4.95 to tempt those enjoying their lunch break.

Poundland - £2

Bucking the trend and offering four lunchtime treats opposed to just three, Poundland's new lunchtime meal deal is easily the cheapest deal on the market.

You may be saddened to know that the deal is not priced at £1 like the majority of its items. However, the offer is still a huge bargain and includes a sandwich, a drink, a packet of crisps and a chocolate bar all for just £2 - much cheaper than many other chains in the town.

Choose a sandwich, a packet of crisps, a drink and a small chocolate bar and off you pop - the purrfect lunchtime meal deal.

Doorsteps Cafe - £4.50

The cafes £4.50 meal deals include both a hot or cold option, one for whatever the weather or for any taste.

The cold meal deal includes either a small salad, jacket potato or sandwich with a can of drink, crisps and cake. A cheaper alternative to a sit down meal, and the luxury of knowing that all the food is homemade.

Their hot meal deals range on a daily basis and can include anything from a four item breakfast with tea and cake, to a texas chilli burrito and cake, or a carbonara with side salad and cake.

It's definitely one worth checking out.
