56 St Marys St
It was a wet day in downtown Edinburgh and I was flying solo for a few hours. I realised I'd missed lunch. This is a rarity for Sir! I spied an attractive restaurant across the road and ventured to the window. Now I have to say that generally a vegetarian restaurant isn't going to be my first choice (or second or third!) but I had a bit of a craving for some hot soup (again not a usual choice for me).
The menu in the window showed some very attractive food options and, fortunately, soup. I went in to a fairly empty place - as it was mid afternoon. I received a friendly greeting and was promptly seated at the window to watch the world go by.
I didn't have to wait long before a steaming bowl of deliciousness arrived. The soup was great. Certainly I was keen to have soup so this may have helped - but it tasted amazing with great flavours.
The homemade bread was good as well. Crisp outer and soft texture inside made it a perfect partner to the main dish.
This meal only cost 3.60 - good value for a good meal in a quality place.
The coffee was good. Nice flavours, good aroma, hot but not overheated.
David Bann is a pleasant place. It has nice decor, good service and great food. Although I'm a meat eater I'd still be happy to go there again and try more of their dishes.
