Munching our way through a menu offering Ma-Chook chicken and Heilan Coo …


It was dreich afternoon and we had already passed a number of closed cafes as well as entering and exiting one that was only serving drinks before we unearthed the gem that is Deli Gasta.
Nestled beside a burn in Broadford, the Old Mill building sits low on the road. There was a warm welcome as we slipped into a cosy nook.
I’m not a soup person (am I the only person who finds soup very wet?) but the butternut squash, sweet potato, coconut chilli soup served with granary bread was sufficiently tempting and when it arrived it wasn’t wet at all. It was thick and creamy leaving waves on the surface as I lovingly trailed my spoon across its surface.
My meat-loving partner was torn between the Ma-Chook Chicken and the Heilan’ Coo sandwich. But on the recommendation of the friendly waiter, and his own intuition, he went for the shredded chicken harissa, mayonnaise, mango chutney slices, red pickled onion and mixed leaves. It arrived with a side of coleslaw, salad and crisps.
The food was served on multi-coloured earthenware plates the colour of the sea and skies on a brighter days. (I think Churchhill’s stonecast range but I forgot to check for you!) Across from us a full-sized, white poodle sat patiently under the table waiting for crumbs – but I doubt there were many to be had.
Thig a-steach – A warm welcome awaits
