Tea, scones and wine, oh my! Three of my favourite things, and 3 things the Edinburgh Larder do very well. I’ve been a couple of times now and love sitting in the suntrap window with papers spread out munching on warm scones and drinking a pot of Eteaket tea (FYI, Blooming Marvelous is my new favourite blend). I’m yet to try their savoury dishes, salads, sandwiches, brunch grub, but I’ve seen yummy plates of food fly past and there is always a steady stream of custom, which is a good sign.
Located on a quiet street off the Royal Mile, this spot can be overlooked, however it is well worth heading off the beaten track to slip in for a cheeky bite to eat or taste of their appealing wine selection (let alone the teas obvs). What’s more, a great deli provides homemade jams and chutneys, cheese and meats – so it’s virtually impossible to leave empty handed.
The Larder also puts on some great local events which I’m very keen to attend. Currently the “Spring Foraging Course” is catching my eye. £20 to learn about what great produce may be lurking in our very own Edinburgh back garden.
Summer 2012 sees the opening of a sister branch in Edinburgh’s West End, so watch this space, I may be finding myself with a new local!
