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
