There are few greater pleasures in life than a slow Sunday afternoon, a little spin round Stockbridge Market, then a stop at a sunny little cafe to read The Spurtle and contemplate the week ahead.
My chosen spot, today, was Crumbs, on the corner of Logie Green Road. With large windows and a bright interior, it was just the job. They have room inside for around ten people, with a couple of additional tables outside.
Their menu offers a nice range of all-day breakfast options, coupled with a good range of sandwiches. I was in soup and sandwich mood, so matched their soup of the day, tomato, with a hummus and falafel roll.
The friendly counter people were swiftly about their business, ensuring that both elements were with me, promptly. They were simply prepared, with the soup looking nicely rustic.
It proved to be well-judged, with good flavour that was fruity without tipping too close to over-sweetness.
The falafel in the roll had good flavour, too, and crunchy salad made for tasty mouthfuls.
So overall, Crumbs hit the spot, very nicely. Both soup and sandwich made for good eating, and I found the welcome very warm. This friendly little local cafe is doing good work, so is well worth popping in, next time you’re passing.
