edinburgh patisserie: lovecrumbs

6 Jun

This. This, this, this.

(That’s internet-speak for “you took the words right out of my head and shaped my thoughts more skilfully than I can express.”)

Lovecrumbs is everything I would like for myself: an open light cafe filled with brick-a-brack. An old drum for a table. Mismatched silver coffee spoons. Big cushions in the window seat so customers can curl up with tea as a live window display.

A wardrobe full of layer-cakes: classics like the Victoria (Vicky) Sponge, twists on favourites like Chocolate and Pink Peppercorn. Cheerful chef-owners who offer you strawberries and bring over extra hot water for the fresh and interesting teas (lemongrass and marigold, anyone? delicious) without being asked.

This, I want this. I want my own cake shop to look like this. Probably a good thing it is in Edinburgh so I can’t pillage all their beautiful ideas.

Lovecrumbs 155 West Port, Edinburgh EH39DP – open Monday to Saturday

    Next time you’re in Edinburgh we’ll go to Anteaques! Not as good for cakes, but the place is really nice (it doubles as an antiques showroom, hence the name) and you can get pretty much any tea you could ever want, and they do a good scone.
