With a diverse menu, it caters for a range of different customers. It serves bacon rolls for £1.80 throughout the day, for example.I was in more of a lunchy mood, so opted for the soup of the day. It was tomato, red pepper and harissa, which immediately set my Union of Genius senses tingling. I matched it with a brie, bacon and cranberry bagel.
The soup was first to arrive, accompanied by tightly crumbed bread. It was entirely delicious, as expected.The bagel then arrived looking plenty bonnie enough. It was a messily well-balanced eat, with good brie to the fore. I was entirely pleased with it.
So overall, I was charmed by Mrs MacIntyre’s. It’s doing remarkably good work given it’s slight tourist-trap location. Both soup and bagel were very good. I’d happily come back for another visit.
