The weather has been pretty good over the last few weeks. I’ve been getting some laser hair removal by a client of mine Soprano Ice Edinburgh, they are based in Morningside so we’ve been using it as an excuse to have a bit of lunch. A few weeks back we opted to go to The Merlin, it wasn’t the best and we’ve since agreed to try and avoid chain restaurants/pubs as we are often left disappointed. Last week we decided to revisit an old haunt of ours, Cafe Grande. We used to go here when I was pregnant and afterwards when Erin was a baby. We hadn’t been for years so I wasn’t sure if it would be as good, turns out it’s just as good.
I love Cafe Grande on a warm day as the front opens up completely and creates a really lovely airy atmosphere. We sat in the window and it was just perfect. I was pleased to see that after so many years, my favourite warm chicken and bacon salad was still on the menu. Alex opted for the club sandwich which came served with chunky chips. The food and service is as good as it always was. On the way out I noticed that they do quite a selection of homemade cakes, including several gluten free options, I can’t wait for my next laser hair removal appointment now so we can go back!
