We were staying literally 2 minutes away from Larder Cafe so we had to try it out. They serve breakfast until noon and the menu has a good range from croissant to full breakfast. I ordered salmon & scrambled eggs which was amazing! lovely toast,...More

We visited this little gem of a cafe on the recommendation of a nearby shop keeper. We were not disappointed. The full breakfast was delicious. Cooked to order with quality ingredients. Attentive staff and although small, this cafe oozes a relaxed, homely atmosphere. Wholly recommend!

This little place was a very nice surprise, welcoming and cosy. Staff was very friendly. We went only for breakfast (3 times, as we really liked the food here the first time). The room is not so big and the place is quite popular, so...More

I have no idea why it is populer. There is nothing interesting, menu was typical cafe menu, decoration was standart also. Serving was very slow, we waited for 25 min for croissant and yoghurt and still no idea what it took so long.

I must have been searching too hard, because I nearly missed this secret, if it weren't for the light rain. Before I start, can I say that for a split second, I felt I was walking into an IKEA display catalogue. There is a bright,...More

It is my third time here, tasteful food, and coffee in a cafe with relaxed atmosphere and very forthcoming waitresses, every time.We had baked eggs with bread, fresh juice and homemade granola. Exquisite! We will go there next time too.

I can't comment on the food, however the one (and certainly will be only) time I attempted to have breakfast here was when my mother came to visit Edinburgh. The waitress showed us to the only free table where we ordered our food. Another group...More

Before our visit to the City, I researched places to eat and came across the Larder...so glad I did, the experience really did do the previous reviews justice. Once we found the cafe down a side street, we luckily grabbed the last table. It is...More

The place is small so we had to wait a bit at lunchtime, but it was worth it. It is just off the High Street. The sandwiches were large and tasty with the choice of two side salads. The cakes were up on the counter...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

Accompany the excellent eating with artisan coffee roasted in Edinburgh, or teas blended here in Scotland by Edinburgh based Eteaket.Throughout the day: if you're after something sweet, our delicious cakes are made on site by our staff who all love to bake. Our gluten free dark chocolate and nut brownies are regularly hailed as the best in town - as are our delicious light scones served with clotted cream and homemade jam.
