Tightly packed with all manner of local and seasonal goodies, Earthy’s store at Cannonmills extends beyond the freshly baked bread and organic wines to reveal a rustic bistro. Reclaimed woods, Edison lightbulbs and mismatched chairs ensure all the hip boxes are ticked. Locals enjoy coffee and pastries while watching the world go by; lunch sees things heat up as nearby office workers forage for salads and sandwiches and, as lightbulbs dim, Fairtrade wine corks pop. The tight all-day menu features several dishes ideal for sharing. Sweet potato fritters with feta are sweet carby goodness with flashes of salty cheese, complemented by a creamy yoghurt sauce. Spiced chickpea burger with halloumi and chipotle mayo is hearty and comforting and comes with extremely moreish hand-cut chips. Service can sometimes wander a little, but this spot on Canonmills Bridge continues to prove a popular draw.

  • Notable dish: Spiced chickpea burger with halloumi and chipotle mayo
