Sorry I’ve been MIA for a while, I’ve been struggling with my anxiety a lot recently but I really want to continue blogging so here I am! Yes, it’s back to Edinburgh again but this time it’s a short post all about my one true love, FOOD. These are the places that I visited and absolutely LOVED!
The Rosehip – Rose St
This little independent restaurant in the heart of the city is cute, quirky and serves delicious food! It offers everything from fish and chips to roast duck but don’t let the fancy food fool you, it’s actually very reasonably priced. I highly recommend!
All Bar One – George St
Now, I know that All Bar One is popping up everywhere these days but I really love their restaurants! The aesthetic and atmosphere is so stylish and cosy plus the food is amazing – without causing offence, I think of it as a better and posher Wetherspoons (let the record show that I do enjoy a good trip to spoons as well). They also have the cutest little tea sets!
Soderberg – Broughton St
There is nothing better than waking up early and grabbing a fresh pastry and peppermint tea for breakfast! Soderberg are artisan Swedish bakeries based in and around Edinburgh, serving delicious baked goods, from Kanelbulle (cinnamon buns!) to Kakor (cookies!). It’s definitely worth a visit, not just for the goodies but also for the beautiful Scandinavian design!
Oink – Victoria St
Vegetarians, you may want to skip this bit.
Oink are the Scottish experts when it comes to serving mouth-watering hog roasts, complete with stuffing, gravy and even haggis – if you can handle it. Just choose your portion of meat (piglet, oink or grunter – a staggering 250g of meat!), choose either white or brown bread and stuffing or haggis and then choose a sauce to complete your masterpiece (homemade mustard mayo, BBQ, chilli cheese or chilli jam!). This is definitely a must for meat-lovers – vegetarians I did warn you… sorry!
Cafe Hub – Royal Mile
Definitely a cafe that is often overlooked, Cafe Hub is located in Edinburgh’s International Festival Centre, along the historic Royal Mile. Not only does this building have beautiful architecture it also houses a small artistic cafe, offering delicious lunches and afternoon tea! This cafe is a must for a cultural trip to Edinburgh – also their smoked salmon and cream cheese rolls are insane.
Zebra Coffee Co – Bank St
Looking for a trendy coffee shop, with a great atmosphere and a perfect location for those artisan latte Instagram shots? Then look no further! Zebra Coffee Co is the ideal place to wind down and relax whilst enjoying a hot drink and slice of cake or a sandwich. It’s also a fab place to get some work done – hopefully you won’t need to though if you are on holiday!
I would certainly recommend visiting these wonderful food havens when you are next in Edinburgh
p.s. let me know if you have every visited any of these places and what you thought!
