CAFES AND COFFEE HOUSES RECOMMENDED BY YOU, THE PUBLIC
PLEASE NOTE - THESE CAFES AND COFFEE HOUSES HAVE BEEN RECOMMENDED BY
MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC, AND NOT YET VISITED BY THE GOOD SOUP GUIDE.
AUCHMITHIE - BUT 'N BEN RESTAURANT. 'Wonderful Arbroath Smokie Soup (so
wonderful that a reservation is essential).' Pat.
AUCHTERARDER - OLD TUDOR RESTAURANT, 149 High Street.
'Good quality home made soup'. Margaret.
EDZELL, COFFEE AND CRAFT SHOP, Main Street, Edzell (about 6 miles north
of Brechin). 'Lovely hearty Courgette and Carrot soup, or Split Pea
soup, all served with home made cheese scones or soda bread. Delicious.'
EDZELL - THE TWEEDIE. It's on the main road going into Edzell; 'you go
through the arch and pass the big hotel, and there on your left, just
past the war memorial, is The Tweedie.' 'They have the most creative and
delicious soups, all served with either soda bread or cheese scone or a
roll [NOTE - I'm beginning to think this may be the same place as that
mentioned above. The Soupsayer.]. 'The soups I have tasted so far include 'Spicy
Parsnip', 'Carrot and Coriander', 'Cock-a-Leekie', 'Chicken Noodle',
'Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese', 'Scotch Broth', 'Chicken Broth', and last
Sunday... 'Marrow and Brie'!!! 'It is also a farm shop selling local
vegetables, clothes and gifts.' Kata. [ANOTHER NOTE - I have
received a number of recommendations for good soup places in Edzell,
indeed so many that I'm getting a little confused as to which is which.
For example, someone mentioned THE TUCK INN, in the High Street. Either
Edzell's main street is festooned with excellent soup joints, or some of
these places are one and the same. Either way, it is beginning to look
as if Edzell is a very special place, where soup is concerned, and as
such I feel a visit may be in order. The Soupsayer.]
SCOTLANDWELL - LOCHEND FARM SHOP (not far from
Kinross). Good range of soup, including 'Lentil and Tomato', 'Leek and
Tattie', 'Chicken and Rice' (the Ayrshire gene is spreading!), 'Broccoli
and Cheese', etc. 'The other thing that makes the soups taste so good is
the fact they use Puddledub Ham in all the soups with a ham stock.'
Anne. [NOTE - Me and the elves have done some research. Puddledub Ham,
it seems, is a dry-cured ham, cured locally in Auchtertool by Tom
Mitchell's small family business. It is said to be 'The best Bacon in
Scotland,' and superb for making soup or stock. The Soupsayer.]
