January 21, 2014 Edinburgh Cafe, Leith, soup No Comments



After rather a lot of walking around the city, over previous days, the sight of Word of Mouth, on Albert Street, was an extremely welcome one, as a good bowl of hearty soup was top of my list, and I’d heard good things about the quality on offer there.

A charming little cafe, with a lovely retro feel to it, they match a good menu of brunch and lunch favourites with a warm welcome.



With soup mode fully engaged, I was delighted to hear that today’s choice was sweet potato, lemongrass and coconut. I ordered a bowl of that, and took a seat.

The soup was soon with me, accompanied by a good chunky slice of bread. It proved to be very tasty, with a well-judged use of lemongrass to perfume the dish but not overpower it. It provided me with just the restorative I was looking for.

So overall, I was very pleased with my brief stop at Word of Mouth. I’m told their eggs benedict is worth a try, so I look forward to visiting again to sample that.
