Opening Hours: Monday – Sunday 9:00~16:00 / Last orders from the kitchen 15:30


The food is delicious, and the meals are massive enough to keep you full for hours. It’s a popular restaurant so I would keep that in mind when visiting and there is a possibility you could be put in a queue. Very well organised brunch spot in a lovely location with really friendly staff, great coffee, and fresh, good quality food. My favourite go-to meal is definitely the tasty and filling full Scottish breakfast. In the meal, you get posh pork sausages, streaky smoked bacon, Stornoway black pudding, Campbell’s prime haggis, smoked paprika tomato, baked beans, confit mushroom, hash brown and a free range egg for £12. You even get the option to add a slice of toast to your meal for an extra £1.50. I definitely recommend paying a visit if you’re interested in trying a full Scottish breakfast for a reasonable price.

15 Blackfriars Street, EH1 1NB

Opening Hours: Sunday – Thursday 8:00~15:00 / Friday – Saturday 8:00~22:00


The Edinburgh Larder is a great place for breakfast/brunch. Tasty food, very friendly staff, excellent service, cozy atmosphere and good coffee. You can order the Full Breakfast for £12.95 which includes Ramsay’s of Carluke smoked back bacon, black budding, Cumberland sausage, roasted flat mushroom, blistered cherry tomatoes, potato scone, homemade beans, poached egg and buttered granary toast. The portion size is adequate, never leaving you feeling hungry or too full. They also have different breakfast options including a Veggie Breakfast for £11.95 and a Vegan Breakfast for the same price. The Veggie Breakfast includes wilted spinach and veggie haggis instead of the meat products, and the Vegan Breakfast is similar but without the egg and toast drizzled with olive oil instead of butter. Would recommend paying a visit to The Edinburgh Larder if you’re looking for a chilled out spot for a nice brunch/breakfast with family or friends.

You can enjoy a lovely fry up full Scottish Breakfast in this quirky location with a great atmosphere and friendly staff. They offer a great selection of breakfast options with huge portions leaving you fully satisfied after your meal. The full Scottish breakfast is listed on the menu as “The Big Yin” for £12.95 and includes their recipe pork sausages, Stornoway black pudding, haggis, slow roasted tomato, smoked streaky bacon, beans, mushrooms and their own tattie scone with a happy egg served in a hot skillet with homemade buttered toast. The food is amazing quality and tastes unreal – definitely worth the money and a top recommendation of mine. They even have an option called “The Leafer” which is a vegetarian breakfast option for the same price. The presentation of the meal is such a cool concept and rest assured you will have a great meal.

3a St Andrew Square Edinburgh EH2 2BD

Opening Hours: Monday – Friday 8:00~24:00 / Saturday – Sunday 9:00~24:00


Dishoom is a lovely little place to enjoy a full Scottish breakfast style fry up but with an Indian twist to it. Great food and service, nice staff, with a lovely vibe to the place. “The Big Bombay” is a delicious fry up meal they offer at Dishoom, very similar to any other full Scottish breakfast out there. For £12.50 your plate will be laden with abundant akuri (spicy scrambled egg), char-striped smoked streaky bacon from Ramsay of Carluke, peppery Shropshire pork sausages, masala beans, grilled field mushrooms, grilled tomato and buttered, home-made buns. Such a great selection of foods for a reasonable price where you can enjoy a filling fry up with an Indian twist. They also offer “The Vegan Bombay” that includes abundant tofu akuri, vegan sausages, vegan black pudding and home-made vegan buns in place of the animal-derived ingredients in “The Big Bombay”. Would definitely be a fun brunch option if you wanted to try something new!

It includes bacon, fried egg, sausage, black pudding, haggis, hash brown, potato scone, tomato, beans, mushrooms and toast.

The food is great value for money and I love how they offer different portion sizes so you can adjust it to your liking!
