Previously home to M1, the Green Cat has a suitably green interior with a lovely tree mural. There are two tables for sit-in customers with most of their customers taking away.
I was in soup and sandwich mood so chose their soup of the day, leek and potato, then added a cheese and meatball wrap. The smiling and attentive counter woman was soon about the task of ladling soup into a stylish pot then assembling and toasting my wrap.
The soup looked bonnie in its wee pot and tasted very good. It was the kind of hearty staple that’s always a winner with me.
The wrap was pretty good, too. The meatballs were succulent and the wrap lightly toasted. It probably needed just an additional minute as the cheese needed to be a bit more melted. It was a tasty item, nevertheless.
So overall, I thought the Green Cat Café was rather good. I was really impressed with their soup, which was one of the better bowls I’ve eaten in 2014. I’d be happy to pop back for another visit as I found the place quite charming.
