February 4, 2015 Breakfast, Closed, Morningside 4 Comments

Well, there’s little point in denying that I was brutally hungover and in desperate need of something (anything) to offer me some nutritional comfort in my pained state.

On my way towards a bracing walk with Louise from the Fireside Collective at the Hermitage of Braid, I stopped at the Zulu Lounge, a characterful little South African cafe in Morningside.

I was firmly in breakfast roll mood. Their menu included something called a “hangover roll” but it sounded ambitiously complex, so I opted for a simple bacon and fried egg effort.

The friendly counter woman was quickly about the task of preparing things. As I waited, I slightly vacantly stared around the place, which is compact but quite smartly decked out. In no time at all, my item was with me, so I wandered on eating and I walked.

The roll proved very good indeed. Profuse smoky bacon was matched with a nicely prepared fried egg, with brown sauce bringing things together. It hit the spot, dead on.

So overall, I was impressed with the Zulu Lounge. In my hour of need, it served me well. I look forward to returning when I’m on better form. I’d recommend a visit.
