I was glad to get down to Leith again and acquaint myself with another of their breakfast offerings. While the rest of the city continues to go burger-mad (three more new places in the offing), it was great to pass evidence of a new Portuguese bakery and an intriguing looking Spanish place about to grace us with their presence.

On Junction Street, I popped in to Sunny @ Leith, which as you might suspect from the name is a bright little place.

Their menu selections are on the walls on a combination of chalkboards and posters. The friendly counter people pointed me in the direction of the breakfast menu from which I chose the scrambled eggs and toast. The dish came with a tea or coffee so for the princely sum of £3.50 this sounded like a good deal.

The coffee came from some sort of Kenco bean to cup machine so I didn’t have high expectations. It wasn’t great.

The eggs were better and were accompanied by profuse buttered toast. It was a solidly good dish that chased away the morning hunger in good style.

So overall, I was happy with my trip to Sunny @ Leith. It’s a cheap and cheerful little spot, full of brightness and good spirits. There’s a little room for improvement, but it seems to be doing solid and reliable business, so I’d be happy to pop back when next in the neighbourhood.
