I saved this place for my last Canada post (until I return, of course) because the impact of what I ate here formed a substance abuse problem for me. We found ourselves absolutely starving and headed for Heart & Crown in the Byward Market as my boyfriend had fond memories of eating there before.
Smoked Salmon BLT
The Afternoon Special
This soup was absolutely to die for.
The toastie (for confused Canadians who I didn’t get to explain to in person, grilled cheese sandwiches are called toasties over here) was also to die for. Beautiful

This was incredible. As a result, since returning back to Scotland I have probably boosted Heinz’s share price single handedly because I’m eating so much tomato soup! I can’t get enough. I’m also testing the combination of the Heinz cream soup with tomato & basil or slow roasted chunky tomato soups mixed in to try and replicate exactly what Heart &Crown serve!
When I’m on holiday I don’t repeat venues for food. Heart & Crown, congratulations! You broke me. I had to have another After School Soefkal before I left! And I’m coming back!
