I’ve been a fan of Lovecrumbs since it opened back in 2012. There have been some changes over recent times with a lunch and all day savoury menu added to their stellar cake selection. They’re also drawing upon local suppliers such as Archipelago, and have recently set up a joint-venture bakery with the Edinburgh Food Studio and Smith & Gertrude.
I popped in at the start of the day and was drawn towards their toast selection. Sadly they didn’t have any of their courgette and ricotta topping so I opted for the intriguing sounding garlic peas and seeds.
I tried their espresso and it was as excellent as ever.
The toast was soon with me delivered by the friendly and attentive counter woman. It was a glowingly vibrant green. It was firmly in the realms of a knife and fork job so I tucked in by that method.
It was extremely good eating with the peas lightly sweet and profoundly flavour-packed. The seeds added a good texture component. The bread was excellent. I was very pleased indeed.
So overall, it was good to see Lovecrumbs on such excellent form in their latest incarnation. They’re doing extremely good work that continues to draw a wide and appreciative audience. Visit soon and visit often.
