James Morrison supplied Herbie of Edinburgh with bread for years, and when the opportunity arose, he took over the West End outpost in 2008. The teeny tiny premises are more a bakery and takeaway sandwich shop than anything else, concentrating on doing a couple of things well – and act as a front for their wider wholesale business that supplies bread to the likes of Earthy and the IJ Mellis cheese shops. They're particularly strong on quiches and soups, with at least five to eight different soups on every week day, and three on the weekend.
