Description: Breakfast: start your day with our award winning breakfast including a range of healthy options such as our own homemade granola (both gluten and dairy free), porridge cooked to order with a selection of toppings, croissants and pastries. Or set yourself up with something more hearty including scrambled eggs with salmon, bacon or sausage, our delicious full breakfast and lots of other tasty treats. 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. Lunch: eat in or take away daily specials such as homemade soups, frittatas, quiches and organic pork & herb sausage rolls together with our menu of seasonal Scottish deli plates, salads, sandwiches made with artisan Scottish cheeses, Highland salamis, Arran smoked fish, and Lanarkshire cooked meats. Wash all this down with one of our local craft beers or a selection of fine local drinks and soak up the atmosphere!

This is a great place quite hidden away and off the beaten track but worth the visit. We have been twice for a good breakfast. Focuses on organic healthy foods and is also a deli. Small but good service. Everything is freshly prepared and makes a great alternative to standard hotel breakfasts.

This cafe is brilliant for breakfast. I had gluten free bread with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs and my husband had smoked salmon and cream cheese croissant. Yummy, high quality, local sourced ingredients at affordable prices! They were playing Flaming Lips as well which meant i had to score 5! Highly recommended, especially for those who have to eat gluten free.

If you've got a spare hour for a sandwich, salad, soup or one of their daily specials, then it's well worth spending that time and money at Edinburgh's Larder Cafe just off the royal mile. It's really tasty and offers great value for money. Kevin the antipodean waiter is a hoot as is his sidekick Stacey!

We visited quite by chance one Wednesday lunchtime. Great, small place, with a light and youthful atmosphere. Has a lovely healthy feel. Staff really friendly and helpful. Food was exceptionally good. We all had soup with half sandwiches. Daughter said her sandwich (ham and cheese) was the best she'd ever had! Fresh was the word I would use more than anything to describe the food. Would definitely go again.

Hi there,

Thank you for such a kind review! I'm delighted to hear that your daughter enjoyed our Ham, Cheddar, and 'my dad's chutney' sandwich. We're proud to be serving fresh and Scottish food. It's great to hear that you found our food to be described as just that.

Thanks again for you're review and come back soon. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

All the best,

Katie

A very good, tasty Sunday breakfast - we arrived at 9, and the place was empty - porridge was excellent, and the porridge and toast sets you up for a good long day. Two of our threesome were coeliac - not GF bread in stock but we had some with us and the menu was adapted quickly.
