Where to lunch in Edinburgh - GRAMS


GRAMS cafe in Haymarket is the place where you'll spot all the cool gang. From students, hipsters to just really cool old people it's the new place to be for something a little different. I've heard so much about it and I've seen them at mini pop-ups but never actually tried anything. Everything they make is it's own tiny piece of perfection. You might laugh, but they're beautiful little mouthfuls of healthy heaven which makes it ten times better. 99% of what they make is dairy, gluten and refined sugar free as well as being all raw natural ingredients and totally vegan. It's the closest you'll every come to healthy and clean cake eating. The best part about it all is that they only use whole, organic and totally natural ingredients. You'll see no soy here or any pretend healthy ingredients. It's completely genuine. I know, it sounds mad but it's true.


It's really no secret that I have the sweetest tooth known to man and this made me a bit apprehensive when I heard that they make cakes that are healthy because it felt too good to be true. The place itself is clean, cool and refreshing to be in. It's fitted with a very modern decoration and little pops of colour which is totally up my street to I was obsessed from the minute we walked in. There's complimentary chilled carafe's of water flavoured with different fruits. I went for the classic cucumber but there was a choice or just plain water so don't worry if you're not into the whole natural flavouring business. There's an amazing seat right in the window that looks like the perfect sun trap but we went for the shade because my boyfriend is ginger and couldn't handle any more heat bless him. The gentleman that served us was super chilled and let us know about every single cake there was. He explained how they were made and what was in what which was amazing to actually learn. (I'm hoping a cookbook is in the making) In the end we went for a blueberry and pistachio cheesecake and a raspberry with vanilla cheesecake. The bases were made from nuts which was amazing and I an tell you this; it was the lightest dreamiest cheesecake I've ever eaten. You just need to try it- even if you're not a cake lover they do fab sandwiches and salads which are 100% on my to be tried list.

Even though GRAMS are known more for being all about that vegan, sugar free life they actually do offer vegetarian and other sweet treats that aren't gluten/sugar free so don't fret. They pride themselves on believing in a healthy balanced lifestyle so they really are the best of both worlds!

  4. Love the sound of Grams, I wish I had a vegetarian/vegan place in my town, it's not very progressive so I won't hold my breath. It's good so many places are opening to cater more. Their food looks delicious. x
