October 26, 2014 Old Town, Sandwich, soup 1 Comment



MJ had made it known to me that an intriguing little place had emerged just next to the World’s End pub, which bore a striking resemblance to a cute wee tearoom. Called Mrs MacIntyre’s, it’s part of the neighbouring hostel.

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.
