I’m going to share with you one of my favorite places which seems to be a bit of an Edinburgh secret. This little establishment just off the Royal Mile only seats 20, but for reasons I can’t fathom isn’t often full. It is a delightful little place which is comfortable, relaxed and bright, these photographs really don’t do it justice. Their tea is from Eteaket, their coffee from Artisan Roast and their deli sells the most delicious things either made in Edinburgh itself, or elsewhere in Scotland. It’s hard to go wrong when you stock top ingredients, and not only are their teas and coffees good, but the cakes are also brilliant. This time I went and had afternoon tea. The scone was HUGE, but fresh and delicious and served with clotted cream and jam. Perfect. Service is also top notch. There is really nothing to complain about here.
If you find yourself in the centre of town, do stop in here and give this place a try. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
