Seeds for the Soul
167 Bruntsfield Place
Overall score: ★★★★★
Seeds for the Soul is quite easily one of my favourite spots in Edinburgh. This charming little café in Bruntsfield serves breakfast, brunch lunch and sweet treats – all of which are completely vegan.
The owners are very passionate about good food, using organic ingredients where possible and making everything from scratch right on the premises.
Their passion shines through and since opening in early 2018, they have been delighting a steady stream of punters with their delicious and colourful creations.

Seeds for the Soul does one of the best cooked vegan breakfasts in the city, with sausages provided by BBL (Mr B’s all-time favourite). The sweet pancakes are equally delicious, and can be made gluten-free on request (for an extra cost).
They’ve started doing stone-baked pizza specials too, and Mr B is a huge fan of their meat feast topping. Other varieties include the classic margarita or their special Italian. For a healthier alternative, try their delicious caesar salad with tofu, avocado, croutons and a lovely creamy caesar dressing.
Seeds for the Soul is an essential stop for breakfast, lunch (and now) dinner when you are in Edinburgh. Whether you are a fan of the full-cooked breakfast or prefer something a little sweeter, you are bound to be satisfied at this charming and fully vegan café.
