Winter Warmers

Thanks to Nikki from the Your Last Mouthful blog for today's guest post.  Follow Nikki on Twitter @urlastmouthful

November has been warmer than usual but there is no denying that it's getting colder. Winter is on its way!

At this time of year I enjoy nothing better than a nice hot soup for my lunch to keep the cold at bay. On my quest to keep warm and full, I came across these crackers!

Embassy Café
A solely vegetarian café based in Cathays Community Centre, Embassy Café use organic, Fair Trade and local produce wherever possible. Each day comes with a new lunch option and a different soup option.

Soup with homemade bread is served for £3 and the flavours are never dull. Recent flavours include black eyed bean and vegetable broth, pea and mint soup topped with feta and pumpkin, chilli and coconut soup.

Flavour is a little take away sandwich shop located on the corner of St Mary's Street and The High Street. As well as excellent value coffee, sandwiches and baguettes, you can get soup to take away for just £1.80.

With the favourite Tomato usually on offer, you can also pick up a guest soup. These change regularly and include carrot and coriander and the very tasty broccoli and stilton flavour.

Pasta Pot
It may be called Pasta Pot but as well as great value pasta dishes, this newbie also does fantastic soup! With a special every day, there is always something good on offer. Some of the soups available so far have been sweet potato and curried leek, spiced mushroom with coconut, winter spiced honey roast parsnip and a favourite of mine, mushroom rosemary and crème fraiche.

Pasta Pot is on Guildhall Place, just off St. Mary's street so it's perfect for a take-away if you're shopping or working nearby.
