I’m so excited to write about this hidden gem today! I had heard nothing about Bross until Vegan Bear took me along for lunch when I went to visit him at Earthy Foods in Portobello.
What a find! This wee Bagel shop is pure joy. Fresh handmade bagels from Breadshare with an amazing selection of fillings. I was so happy when I had a look at the vegan menu.
Look at that, fake meats, cheese, pickles, avocado…all my favourite things…on bagels!
I decided to go for the Little Apple – Patramheat, Violife Cheese, Dill Pickle and Mayo. We had a nice chat with the owner Larah while she made my bagel up for me. Jayson introduced me as a vegan blogger and made me blush throughout the whole exchange but Larah was lovely and even let me take a free bag home with my bagel. Bagels and Bags, Bross know how to win my heart.
We decided to takeaway so that we could walk down to the beach and eat with the beautiful view. I forgot to take a photo of that view because Bagel, but have a view of what went in my mouth.
This was such an amazing lunch. I loved my bagel, the filling was delicious, the perfect amounts of everything, nothing was too overpowering. The cabbage salad was also delicious.
I’m definitely going to have to have more lunch dates with Jayson so that I can try everything on that vegan menu. Finally a vegan bagel that is a little more than just a smear of vegan cream cheese and limp salad tomatoes.
If you’re in Portobello or fancy a trip for a nice lunch by the beach, definitely pop into Bross! They are open Mon-Saturday 9am-3pm and Sunday 10am-2pm
