Edinburgh - Cafes
Best-selling author JK Rowling gained inspiration for her magical Harry Potter novels as she sipped coffee in cafés such as the Elephant House. And you will soon see why, when you stop for a bite to eat in Edinburgh’s cosy cafes.
This much-loved Edinburgh institution is decorated with over 600 elephants in all shapes and sizes as well as serving coffee and tea from all corners of the earth. Take a seat in the back room to enjoy a magical view of Edinburgh Castle.
For Mimi, baking is an art form, and she loves to experiement and come up with exciting new recipes. An example of this inventive joy is the chocolate beetroot cake. Why not try one to your afternoon tea?
This quirky tea boutique in Edinburgh’s classy New Town is the perfect place to enjoy afternoon tea and cake. Choose from their extensive range of teas, sourced responsibly from around the world.
Two Thin Laddies
The Two Thin Laddies easily catch your eye with their brightly painted yellow walls. This place is extra popular on the weekends, when people storm the place for a hearty breakfast, or brunch, if it’s difficult to get out of bed.
Loopy Lorna´s Tea House
You can’t beat a nice cup of tea! This café aims to make you feel at home, surrounded by the sweet scent of hot-baked scones stright from the oven. Quality loose leaf teas and cakes made from family and traditional recipes are a few of the things that will make you want to come back for more.
