Honouring Henry Bell's paddle steamer, this compact café includes plenty of nods to quality Scottish produce in its breakfasts, rolls and more.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

On a street that has a multitude of cafés, Comet Pieces has a menu that adds contemporary panache to traditional offerings. With beans from Papercup, the coffee is smooth, the sandwich selection enticing and the desserts, including a variation on the Scottish teacake, seductive. The fresca omelette is an original twist on this café staple: fluffy and light, its mixture of salsa and cottage cheese perfectly balanced. The halloumi on Freedom Bakery sourdough is complemented by a delicious lime sauce, and the experience rises above the generic café rush. The seating is limited, with more bar-style places than tables, but the warmth of the welcome – they even take care of the loyalty cards by holding them behind the till for regulars – and the attention to detail in the main courses ensure that this place will become increasingly busy as it establishes itself.
