Edinburgh’s Edible Hotspots.

Living in Bristol there is an absolute abundance of small independent eateries around pretty much every corner. It makes choosing where to go a pretty tricky affair. Do you try somewhere new, or pay another visit to somewhere that was such a pleasure last time? My God, the decisions I have to make…

In Edinburgh we had a whole spectrum of different places to test out. With ‘independence’ in mind we opted for small businesses, local favourites and one that I’d had my Instagram-trained eye on for awhile.

One super cool place we visited was the Royal Mile Market, which was a bit of a clever find as we were just strolling by. I was expecting just a small market selling little bits and bobs and pretty things, but this renovated church also housed a sweet little cafe offering some amazing looking sandwiches and the like. It was slightly chilly, but eating lunch under a beautiful stained glass window made up for it!

A few other places worth a mention are The Dogs Restaurant, and as I said in my last post, it was very tasty. They had a small but perfectly formed menu and some interesting, very dog-orientated décor! Slightly odd name for a restaurant perhaps. I did accidentally call it The Dogs Dinner on a few occasions (I can assure you, a dogs dinner it is not!).

Pete’s Yard is another cracking place that Edinburgh has to offer. Primarily a bakery, it has a bright and airy cafe offering breakfasts and lunches complete with their fresh, fresh bread. It’s not the cheapest of places but it’s worth a visit, and we definitely left with a few extra bits for later!

Love Crumbs have made a name for themselves with their unusual but fabulous flavour combinations (rose and rhubarb – don’t mind if I do!) and for their wardrobe full of cake. Wardrobes are good for storage, so why not put your cake in there. As I said before they have a pretty tempting Instagram feed, that’s worth checking out, just in case their wardrobe display wasn’t enough for you.
