Shortly after its opening, we popped along to Seeds for the Soul for a lazy Sunday breakfast. While it was fairly quiet when we arrived, it quickly filled up with people while we were there. We enjoyed a couple of coffees made with oat and coconut milk, and there are lots of other dairy-free milk choices available.

I had the avocado toast, which was made with brown sourdough bread. While the toppings may look a bit sparse in the pictures above, the olive oil actually kept the bread nice and moist, making the whole thing very nicely balanced.

I also sneaked a slice of carrot cake to take away (please don’t judge – they looked so irresistible!). It was rich, soft, moist and sweet with a deliciously smooth cream “cheese” icing. Absolutely delicious!

The place has only been open for barely a week at the time of writing but the selection and tastiness of the food shows that the guys of Seeds for the Soul have already really hit their stride. I’m sure this place will be delighting vegans in Edinburgh for many years to come.
