The Ultimate Guide to Brunch & Coffee in Edinburgh Part 1

Okay so if you are anything like the team at TQR eating out constantly is a habit we just can't quit. Brunch & coffee is one of the best way to relax at the weekend, catch up with friends and family and best of all recover from a heavy night. We have decided to do a bit of a guide to brunch, lunch and coffee in Edinburgh, of course there are so many places to visit that we can't include everywhere so here is part 1...

Grab & Go 

Project Coffee - 196 Bruntsfield Pl, Edinburgh EH10 4DF
Great for something quick whether you want to sit in for a bit or takeaway and the portions are huge. Perfect if you are after a breakfast or something light like a bowl of soup or a sandwich. Fab selection of cakes too.

Wellington Coffee - 33a George Street, EdinburghScotland
This is a fab place to grab a truly fantastic coffee that isn't Costa or Starbucks before work as it is on 
George St right in centre of town. At the weekend if your shopping its a great place to go for a little 
refreshment. The carrot cake is particularly good in there. 

Twelve Triangles - 90 Brunswick St, Edinburgh EH7 4AQ/300 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 2AS
Twelve Triangles is one of Edinburgh's best little gems and not spoken about nearly enough. You can get a really good coffee there and I love the almond milk ice coffees they do too. The donuts are the star attraction though, so if you go you must buy a donut and be adventurous as they have some fabulously unique flavours!
Settle that Sweet Tooth

Corro Chocolate Cafe - 5 Howard St, Edinburgh EH3 5JP/13 Frederick St, Edinburgh EH2 2EY
I have eaten here an embarrassing amount of times because honestly it is to die for. The pancakes, the waffles, the cakes you just can't go wrong. It is a build your own business regarding the menu and the add ons are amazing, pretzels, white chocolate, fruit, whipped cream, oreos you name it they have it. Visit with caution, it is not for those on diet but worth every morsel! 

Pappi Cafe - 101 Hanover St, Edinburgh EH2 1DJ
This lovely little cafe was a great find one afternoon. It is right in the centre of town and if you go mid week or super early you can catch the place quiet and really relax with one of their gorgeous waffles. It is also really reasonably priced so you can't go wrong!

Do I want Breakfast or Lunch?

Meltmongers - 80 Bruntsfield Pl, Edinburgh EH10 4HG
Okay so I saw this place hyped a lot on social media and when I finally managed to get a long to try I was not disappointed. If you love cheese, want a quick bite around 12ish possibly hungover, look no further. There is decent choice of breads and fillings as well as amazing sweet potato fries if you are super hungry.

The Pantry - 1 N W Circus Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6ST
I often meet friends here for a light lunch or some breakfast because it really does just suit anybody. The food is amazing, it's really child friendly and the atmosphere and staff are relaxed and super accommodating as well as friendly. Great place to visit if you are in the Stockbridge area of the city.

Cafe Miro - 5/25a Promenade, PortobelloEdinburgh EH15 1HH
Cafe Miro is a recent find of mine, situated on the gorgeous beach front in Portobello it is brilliant, 
place for brunch and a coffee. The menu caters for even the fussiest of eaters and has a great selection 
whether you want a meal or just a snack. They also have some to die for homemade cakes that you
just have to try, mint aero tray brake was unbelievable! 

Healthy Extras 

Grams. - 16 Clifton Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5JZ
Okay so we have already raved about grams in our full review here but we had to include it again because it is one of the best brunch spots in Edinburgh. If you are after dairy, gluten and refined sugar free as well as being all raw natural ingredients and totally vegan this place is for you. Healthy, in the centre of town and delicious, what more can you ask for?

Söderberg Pavilion - 1 Lister Square, Edinburgh EH3 9GL
We recently went to a bloggers brunch meet up here on a Sunday afternoon and we fell in love. It is in a great spot on quarter mile and it is such a bright and beautiful place to eat and chat. They have some really tasty healthy options and their sourdough bread is fantastic! 

 I hope I have inspired you to brunch this coming week!
