Best Breakfast Spots in Edinburgh
Our Favourite Breakfast Spots in Edinburgh
When it comes to the most important meal of the day, Scotland’s capital knows how to serve you well. From traditional Scottish fayre to international delights, Edinburgh has everything you could hope for. Whether you’re craving haggis or haloumi, naan bread or eggs benny, this post will point you in the right direction – and make you hungry!
Nobles Bar & Restaurant, Leith.
If it’s a full Scottish breakfast you’re after, it doesn’t get much better than this. Stornoway black pudding is the key selling point of this satisfying serving, alongside local haggis, sausage, bacon, mushroom, tattie scone, baked beans, and eggs cooked how you like them. Not to mention some fancy toasted bread for that wee bit extra sustenance. Only those with a hearty appetite will finish the lot! We also love the crispy polenta dish, with cheese, tomato, poached eggs and romesco sauce. Nobles prides itself on locally sourced ingredients, and the proof is on the plate.
Loudons Café & Bakery, Fountainbridge.
Loudons takes eggs benny to a whole new level. Each dish features perfectly poached eggs on homemade English muffins, with a choice of delicious toppings. Smoked salmon, chipotle coriander sauce, and cajun spiced crayfish? Go for the Louisiana. Or perhaps you’re more of a creamed spinach, pulled pork and chilli mango sauce aficionado? Failing that, you’ll be sure to settle for some goat’s cheese, chorizo, haggis, or avocado. Good luck with the decision making, and on resisting the home-baking afterwards.
Dishoom, St Andrews Square.
An Indian restaurant? For breakfast?! Yep, that’s right. Dishoom is the exotic way to start your day, with spiced eggs and homemade buns or
The Pantry, Stockbridge.
The Pantry sits in the village-like area of
The Educated Flea, Broughton Street.
This cute and compact eatery never fails to satisfy. The menu is filled with quality, local ingredients, used to form interesting and flavourful dishes. The brunch menu typically features a hearty potato hash creation and eggs that could be poached, scrambled or fried. This
Those with an impressive appetite can mix and match dishes from the brunch and lunch menus as part of the two-course lunch for £12. Bargain.
Café Tartine a.k.a the French place, Leith
Cafe Tartine on Leith Shore is fondly nicknamed “The French Place” by the Intrepidus Outdoors management, who it would be safe to say
Brunch and supper, George IV Bridge
You can’t talk about breakfast…well, brunch in Edinburgh without Brunch and Supper being pretty high up your list.
