SquareMeal Review of The Edinburgh Larder Cafe

The café sibling of the Edinburgh Larder Bistro on Alva Street, this pint-sized daytime venue also operates as a deli, selling all kinds of specialist provisions and comestibles for the city’s foodies. ‘Wee’ and ‘hearty’ breakfasts kick-start the day, while lunches offer mixed plates of cheeses, pâtés and cured meats from the deli counter alongside soups, sandwiches and cold plates (Bonnet goats’ cheese with beetroot pickle or Ramsay’s ham and mustard) with assorted salads. As you might expect, there are plenty of cakes, tray bakes and cream confections too, with unusual teas, homemade seasonal cordials and coffees from Edinburgh specialists Artisan Roast. The place is licensed, so you can also sup patriotic brews including Edinburgh Gold, Brookville Dark, hoppy Holyrood and even Thirstly Cross cider.
