Proceed to Elceed to get your feed (and coffee)
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Or if that's a bit too early for you, then make it brunch. Either way, if you're not in the mood to put together a meal for yourself, then pop on over to Elceed Cafe along Queensberry Street.
Their menu is a healthy assortment of fruits and breads, as well as a variety of poached eggs with toppings such as haloumi, mushrooms and Gruyere cheese, salmon, etc. They also serve yummy tarts and muffins, and seasonal fruit juices and smoothies. I've tried their special tart (chorizo, parmesan, and broccoli in a flaky shell) and it was very tasty. Their most interesting item on the menu is their baked eggs, mixed with ingredients that they vary regularly. So make sure to ask what the baked eggs dish for the day is, if you want to try it out. I had the one with eggplant and chickpeas, and it was delicious. Unfortunately, there are very limited choices if what you want is a hearty meat-based dish, as their menu is mostly focused on fruits and vegetables.
The staff is friendly and helpful - if you're not sure what you want to get, they're more than happy to give you an idea, depending on what they think is good on the menu.
Or if all you want is a good cup of coffee or cappucino and a nice place to read or chat with a friend, the atmosphere in this cafe is laidback and charming, like lounging in a really cool friend's dining room.
