It Cafe’o’clock again! For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this concept, then it is basically me chit chatting about a recent cafe visit. My last Cafe’o’Clock post was Piece Box, check it out here https://obsessionmuch.wordpress.com/2014/08/28/cafeoclock-piece-box/. Now if you were to ask me where most of my money goes towards then I would tell you it goes towards food! Not food where you pop into Scotmid and buy a bar of chocolate but cafe food! Coffees. teas, cakes, biscuits…..and the list goes on. Yes I know, so very unhealthy but actually most of the things I buy are moderately healthy ish ;o)
Today I will be talking to you about Lovecrumbs. Lovecrumbs is located on 155 West Port, Edinburgh, EH3 9DP. They are a cake-only cake shop.
The shop opened at 10.30 am and I was one of the first few people to arrive. To my surprise within 20-25 minutes of the place opening it was super busy! There were students like myself, the elderly and also mums who had come hence showing that this cafe is welcome and suitable for all. After I entered the store the first thing I spotted were the beautiful cakes, scones and croissants on display! My heart really did skip a beat ❤
The pricing was decent, not too expensive. My total was £3.80. I gave my order ( black coffee & Pumpkin Spice Cookie) to the person behind the till who was very smiley. I do like when the staff are friendly as it creates a more positive environment. Thumbs up to the cheerful staff at Lovecrumbs!
I managed to find a small table to sit down. A few minutes later the coffee was brought to me in a little cup with my cookie which by the way can I say was so yummy! The coffee cup was a bit small but I was kind of glad because it tasted a bit funny….I believe their coffee beans must have been quite different compared to my normal Costa/Starbucks coffee beans.
They had small tables and big tables which is perfect as some people came in big groups which meant that the cafe was accommodating everybody. The cake was buzzing with everybody talking, the noise of the coffee machine, a little baby girl crying/laughing away. For me personally a good cafe is where I feel comfortable and can just get on with my business. I have been to a few cafes where I felt uneasy at times for different reasons. However at Lovecrumbs, despite it being busy, I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all.
Overall my experience here was fab :o) I really had to force myself and leave actually. I was so engrossed in reading my book and just feeling comfy that it made me leaving my chair a bit of a struggle. Highly recommend checking out this cafe!
Thanks for reading lovelies, take care ❤
