Edinburgh Brunch Diaries | Take Two

Back at it again documenting some of my fave brunch spots in Edinburgh and I may very well have found a new fave...

The Little Bakery
A bold claim but this little South Queensferry gem *might* just be one of the best brunches I've had in my life. A dreamy combination of thick, and I mean thick, buttermilk pancakes, biscoff spread, biscoff crumb, chantily cream, maple syrup and a brulĂȘe banana. Every item on the menu looked incredible and the service was lovely, plus the interiors are very instagrammable which is always a bonus... And I cant think of a better was to burn off brunch than a wander along the beach front on the Little Bakery's doorstep - perfection.

Baba Budan
A teeny tiny gem of a place I discovered recently in the arches next to Waverley train station, mostly for their incredible freshly made doughnuts - which are also seriously worth a try, I still dream of their orange curd and raspberry flavour. But they also do a bangin' brunch from Friday - Sunday with wonders including breakfast Bao Buns and Doughnut french toast (both of which I intend to try very soon).  I went for the Passionfruit Meringue French Toast after taking about half an hour to decide, oops! But it was worth taking my time to decide as my brunch consisted of great thick slices of brioche french toast drenched in passionfruit coulis, vanilla crĂ©meux, flaked almonds and shards of meringue. I will definitely be back to try the doughnut french toast, can't beat a combination of my three fave things - brunch, doughnuts and french toast.

Honeycomb and Co
A Bruntsfield beauty, decorated beautifully with marble tables, fresh flowers and pops of honey yellow. But best of all home to some beautiful unique brunch options, I had the Fruity French Toast and it was sweet tooth's dream with sticky toffee croutons, caramelised apples and vanilla bean greek yogurt - delicious. Their menu for brunch is full of gorgeous flavour combinations and unique dishes which change seasonally - I have my eyes on you Spiced Korean Bacon and Egg...

Mimis Bakehouse
The most decadent breakfast options of all time, three words CHEESECAKE. FRENCH. TOAST. Yes it's as heavenly as it sounds, imagine a the fluffiest doughnut you've ever had filled with berry cheesecake, fried and then drizzled with raspberry coulis, maple syrup and white chocolate. I've honestly never eaten something so indulgent and I need to try their biscoff version ASAP. Their City Art Cafe has just opened up beside Waverley and is beautifully decorated, with plenty of freshly baked cakes daily which are just as delicious as their brunch option, a must visit when in Edinburgh.

Toast Leith
The only savoury option on todays list but for good reason, the promise of Chroizo. This is probably the best avocado french toast I've ever had with toasted sourdough, smashed avocado, crumbled feta cheese and chorizo. The most incredible combination of flavours and textures especially with one of Toast's freshly made juices. Their restaurant sits right on the shore with a lovely view over the canal, making it the perfect people watching spot while you eat, a true Leith icon.

Thanks for Reading,
