Needed sustenance after the rugby match. Ordered the soup, home made spicy lentil (not sure what it was called) with a great yoghurt dressing. Great big chunks of olive bread came with it. Simply scrumptious!

I regularly visit this cafe as it is close to home and also serves what I think is the best veggie breakfast in Edinburgh out of all that I have tried. You get a generous helping of cherry tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, a potato scone, avocado, a fried egg, some chunky bread and my favourite part, some lovely veggie haggis. The... More

I used to eat at this nice place when I lived in Edinburgh (up to December 2014). The full Scottish breakfast is awesome, I am looking forward to eating it again. There is also a wide range of sweet options, but I recommend trying the typical breakfast (with haggis). The place itself is lovely and relaxing, with nice furniture.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
