A lot of my friends and fans on my Facebook page have been begging me to review Organic Delicious, a cute wee café in Morningside that specialises in vegan and gluten-free options which will refuel and re-energise. Having heard so many good reports about this place, I was excited to pop along with Mr B and find out what they have on offer.

Something for dessert…?

Mr B and I popped in for a bite of lunch, but we must have caught them on a bad day. Shortly after we took our seats at the table they shut their doors early due to staff shortages, and they had ran out of hummus which limited our menu choice.

I had the falafel fantastica sandwich, and simply swapped out the hummus for mushrooms. While it was a tasty combo, I think it was a little bit on the dry side due to the lack of hummus. However, the Sunrise Smooth smoothie that I slurped alongside it was delicious. Mr B happily munched his vegan sausage sandwich, but he said it wasn’t a patch on the cheap and cheerful offering at BBL.

Overall, we thought the meal was a little pricey for what we had and slightly underwhelming. This café has a good reputation among locals, so I am keen to return on a better day and explore more of the Organic Delicious menu – with a little more hummus perhaps.  🙂
