With a menu packed full of seasonal and local produce, The Edinburgh Larder is providing a taste of the countryside in the heart of the city. This spot is famous throughout Scotland for its brunches, and also offers delicious breakfast and lunch dishes.  

The secret to The Edinburgh Larder’s success lies in its ability to forge strong relationships with small suppliers, enabling them to receive the best Scottish produce to use in their constantly evolving menu. They are clear in their goals, stating that ‘honest ingredients, delicious food and a warm welcome’ are what they aim for, and this warm country attitude is apart from the moment you step through the door.  

The café is tucked away off Royal Mile, earning it its ‘hidden gem’ reputation. The décor, like the food, is simple, straightforward and comforting. The bright space has a modern rustic feel, with light oak tables and chairs, and pops of yellow. White walls and floor to ceiling front windows give an airy feel, while warm lighting means this is a cosy spot on darker Scottish days.  

Breakfast and brunch classics are a key feature of the menu here, with popular options including full breakfasts, salmon and spinach hash with poached egg and salsa verde, and a waffle, served with blueberry compote and pistachio and cardamom butter. Lunch sees a range of elevated wraps, soups, salads and sandwiches; however, the standout dish has to be the taste of Scotland plate. Offering up the very best of Scottish produce, this plate features local classics such as smoked salmon, cheeses, apple chutney, mini oatcakes and sweet potato salad.  

Local suppliers are also championed on the drinks menu, featuring craft beer and real ales sourced from local breweries such as Stewarts and Tryst. Here you’ll also find non-alcoholic botanical drinks and artisan wines.  

Be sure to check out the seasonal cakes and sweet treats afterwards, especially the famous dark and chocolate and nut brownies, which just so happen to be completely gluten free!
