Good salads and coffee. Try the polenta cake, it's heavenly! A little bit over priced imo but a nice vibe.

On Morningside road near traffic lights. This was most excellent brunch especially the porridge. The black pudding roll was very tasty. Very busy with kids and parents but staff coped very well.

2nd visit to this great eatery in Morningside, once again for brunch. Caters for all diets but I esp. like it because of the number of veg / vegan options. Portions are hearty, good honest food, friendly staff and quick service.
