Sunday Brunch - Moon & Hare


Weekends that I have to work I must say, are not my favourite.
Before you know it, you are thrown back into the craziness of the week and you haven't had the chance to catch up with yourself or wind down.
Luckily Sunday is my day off this week so I made the most of it!

My big sister and I took our family pup Logan to Crammond beach to run off some steam.

Even though it was rainy and overcast, it was still beautiful!

Plus this cheeky wee chappy got to make friends and run around like a loony!

He also took the time to splash through as much wet sand and mud as possible.

After our walk, it was time for me to meet my lovely work friend Beth for Brunch.
Beth has recently become vegetarian and with my need to eat gluten free, a little research needed to be done!
This was a no-brainer.
I give you Moon & Hare - located in Brutsfield, Edinburgh.

Moon and Hare pride themselves on being independent, gluten free, veggie and vegan.

The best part for me is -  they don't have a single wheat or gluten containing product on the premises so there is 0% chance of cross contamination. No getting sicky for me...happy days!

The vibe is cosy, with pretty yet minimalist decor which suits the place perfectly as the food & drink is the focus!

The menu is to the point, but there is certainly enough to keep everyone happy. A mixture of sweets and savouries for breakfast, brunch and lunch! They also make tea and coffee using a variety of milks so if dairy isn't your thing, they've got it covered! Plus smoothies galore...

The staff are super friendly and are knowledgeable of everything they have to offer, so no question goes unanswered!

Right lets get down to business...struggling to decided what to eat, we ordered drinks. I had a cappuccino and Beth had tea!

After gazing at the menu for long enough, it was a unanimous vote! I give you...Vegan/Gluten Free waffles with banana, toasted coconut and maple syrup.
They come in half and whole portions...lets be real...brunch is not for half measures!

Light, fluffy and utterly delicious. The PERFECT way to settle into a lazy sunday!

The combination of flavours and textures is a definite win in my book. Teamed with great company, you can't really ask for better!
If you want to visit Moon & Hare I highly recommend it. They are a small place so you may have to wait for a table but they are certainly worth it (great things come in small packages after all!)
Enjoy! Xx
