With the ever-growing trend of organic dining in full swing, standing out amongst the crowd of healthy-eating cafes is not going to be easy these days. Few manage to pull it off convincingly, but some stand out.
Take Edinburgh's Organic Delicious Cafe, for example – their menu is entirely organic. From the eye-wideningly strong coffees and specially blended juices to the soups, salads and sandwiches; everything you see has been lovingly sourced from local producers. You'll find no pesticides, nasty chemicals or chain-bought fare here, even the sugar which goes in to the cakes is unprocessed.
Eating raw, however, doesn't have to mean eating bland, and this is where Organic Delicious earns its name. The menu is colourful and creative, from the early morning options, which range from smoothies brimming with berries to the unconventional 'Egg in a Hole', to the heartier lunch range, which includes a Falafel Fantastica Sandwich and a vegan chilli that'll fill you up for days. There are also some clever tapas options, if you're in the mood to share.
With its calm interior and earthy tones, it's easy to fall in love with the clean-living vibes that this place offers and because even the takeaway containers are biodegradable you can rest assured that even leaving with a doggy-bag will mean you're doing your bit for the environment. So really, that means it would be rude not to grab a brownie to go, right?
