The Sandwich Hub
The day was bright as I wandered aimlessly, catching the odd Pokemon but otherwise unencumbered by workaday concerns. I alighted upon the Sandwich Hub on Dundee Street and thought it looked a good spot for required breakfast fare.
The place seemed popular with the local building trade. The prevailing fashion was hard hat and hi-viz which was somewhat at odds with my red hipster pantaloons.
An obliging sign indicated that for £3.45 you could choose three breakfast items to be placed in a wrap and toasted. I opted for bacon, black pudding and tattie scones, which was met with strong approval from both of the friendly counter women.
After a moment or two of preparation, during which several other customers were efficiently attended to, I was on my way with a volcanically hot item in hand.
After gently rejoicing that I hadn’t added what would likely have been fatally scalding brown sauce to the mix, and allowing the wrap to cool just a little, I tucked in.
It proved a really satisfying eat. The bacon could have been a little crisper but was suitably plentiful. The wrap casing had been beautifully toasted and the tattie scone gave things a pleasing substance. I enjoyed it a lot.
So overall, the Sandwich Hub is a good, no frills, low-cost breakfast and light lunch option. For a hearty breakfast bite it provides a really good second option in this neighbourhood to sit next to the very good nearby Lime. Pop in for a visit when a hot savoury treat is needed to start the day.
