The moment you step inside this lovely little café and delicatessen, you’ll realise you’re in for a treat. The Edinburgh Larder is well known for the delicious seasonal, local and sustainable food and produce it sells. Settle down and tuck into fresh sandwiches and salad plates. Think local cheese with homemade chutney, and roast chicken and herb mayo – all of these sandwiches can be made using their homemade gluten-free bread.
Daily brunches are the talk of the town; start on the right foot with homemade granola and local yoghurt, eggs Benedict, or a full veggie or Scottish breakfast with delicious homemade beans. Choose from a selection of daily specials made using seasonal ingredients, including homemade organic sausage rolls, daily soups, tarts made with seasonal veg and deli plates with local meats, fish and cheese. Put your feet up with a coffee, roasted on-site, or slice of cake – make sure you don’t miss the dark chocolate and nut brownies, which are always gluten-free, though you’d never guess. Alternatively, opt for light scones served with clotted cream and homemade jam. Unpretentious and laid-back, this little gem is ideal for any occasion.
The friendly team has a conscience; they’ve set up a social enterprise that aims to make local food more accessible by working with local communities to develop cooking skills. They can also put their passion and knowledge to good use and provide outside catering for offices and parties; contact email@example.com for more details.
