I pass Laura’s coffee shop regularly and it is always packed full. My wife and mother in law are frequent visitors for a Monday lunch. Today my mother in law was otherwise engaged so I joined my wife to go for lunch at Laura’s.
Nestled in Carmunnock Laura’s is on two levels in what appears to be across two “shops”. Inside the decor is very quaint with various nick nacks on the walls but it is bright, airy and welcoming and not at all what I was expecting. We arrived before 12 to make sure we got a table and sure enough there were only a few table taken. We picked a table and sat down. We were immediately served and informed of the soup and specials and ordered a coffee and a soda and lime.
The lunchtime menu is extensive covering soups to sandwiches to much larger dishes and everything in between. I had my eye on a salad and was honestly struggling to make a choice out of the extensive list as a number sounded great! I eventually picked the warm chicken and bacon with mozzarella salad and my wife went for a tuna nicoise.
Mine was nicely presented in a large bowl full of salad and a very healthy portion of chicken, mozzarella and bacon strips on top dressed in a very nice balsamic. On the side were two slices of crusty bread and butter. The chicken was nicely warm, soft and juicy. The salad worked well and was full of fresh lettuces, carrot etc… and was large enough to give a pleasantly full feeling. The Tuna salad was of a similar make up with a generous helping of tuna.
The staff were very pleasant and the coffee shop was filling up as always when we paid and left. I see that Laura’s is now open on a Thursday and Friday evening and I would like to give it a try for dinner based on this very excellent lunch. For our two salads, a soda and lime and a white coffee it was £18.
