- Breakfast iin Edinburgh
Balmoral is very good but not exactly cost effective…
Social bite is open from 7. Other end of scale to balmoral but nice food and you are helping the homeless.Posted 2 months agoDougDMember
Was just about to post Dishoom. Not been but heard good things about the breakfast.
Not city centre but Roseleaf down at the shore knocks up a decent breakfast and an excellent bloody mary.
If it’s a cheap greasy spoon you’re after, then Snax is in the city centre too. Don’t know about the coffee, irn bru seems to the the drink of choice to accompany the fry up there.Posted 2 months agohazzatrazzaMember
+1 for Snax (on Buccleuch St., havnt been to the city centre one) always has white vans outside and its justified. Top notch greasy spoon. Also recommend the City Cafe.
More highbrow: Loudons, Edinburgh Larder, Treehouse Cafe, Papii, Boss Bagels.
Outside runner: Meltmongers (not sure if they do breakfast but awesome cheese toasties!!)Posted 2 months agomunrobikerMember
Snax at the east end of the Meadows is great for greasy spoon stuff.
Loudons is average I think and people always queue outside so you’ll be disappointed if you just turn up.
For posh stuff, 27 Elliot’s is meant to be excellent, also by the Meadows. Honeycomb is my favourite but it’s in Bruntsfield which isn’t really the city centre.Posted 2 months ago
Biggest breakfast snob here, loudons is average. Di giorgio towards stockbridge is restaurant quality at c nice cafe prices. Eggs benedict is the best.
Central…kilimanjaro on nicholson st opp uni is v good, bit hipsterish but they all are now. Word of mouth off Leith walk v good too.
Water of Leith cafe is v good too, just opp do giorgio but I would do the latter first.
Thnks all, got these off here.Posted 2 months ago13thfloormonkMember
It comes with bacon and maple syrup, even the bacon was the best I’ve had, cripy and salty instead of the standard pink and flacid that I’m used to elsewhere.
You can have it with banana instead, in fact once the owner got to know us he started insisting that I have a side of banana to compliment the bacon, he takes his breakfasts seriously!
Edit: to answer your question properly, yes the French toast on its own was better than anywhere else, thick but still moist and with a hint of cinnamon.Posted 2 months ago
