Soup-mongers extraordinaire, Union of Genius won the Good Soup's Guide 'Best Soup' in Scotland award 2013. All their soups are made fresh with locally-sourced ingredients, with many gluten-gree, vegetarian and vegan options available. Every day sees six soups chalked up, picked from their selection of over 80 recipes ranging from roast cauliflower, or butternut and bacon, to more unexpected imaginings such as 'The Awesome Swede' (swede, cardamon and black tea... it works). Plus, you can bring the vegware packaging back for composting in exchange for loyalty points.
Also on offer is coffee from Artisan Roast, gluten-free and vegan cakes from Love Pure Cakes, bread from Dough Re Mi, gourmet hot chocolates from Coco and Chocolate Tree, and various other teas and treats. The real star is the soup though, with Union of Genius describeing them as 'love in a bowl'. Pretty much sums 'em up.
