Earlier this month Chloe and I travelled to Edinburgh for the first time to visit a friend, shout out Alicia – thank you for taking us to the best spots.
Here is a quick run down of everywhere we stop for food on our 3 day trip
Kicking it off we have August 21 coffee house. We stopped off here for lunch on our first day. It’s a super cute cafe with an arty hipster vibe. Lots of people having coffees and remotely working. I went for the vegan cheese, tomato and spinach panini – delicious. Whatever cheese they used (I think violife) tasted amazing. 8/10 would recommend.
Next stop, Considerit. Consider nothing, vegans get yourselves here. They serve amazing vegan doughnuts and cream eggs. I got the chocolate hazelnut doughnut, 10/10!
After a tiring first day wandering around old town in the cold, our dinner stop had to be The Auld Hoose, the amount of times this got recommended to me on Instagram was insane! Home to the biggest nachos on Edinburgh – available with meat, veggie or vegan toppings. The size of these are insane, the regular feeds 2/3 and the 3 of us hardly made a dent in it! We also had a side of vegan onion rings that come on a kitchen roll holder – best vegan onion rings I have ever had. 10/10 for this place!
Having had pink waffles in Copenhagen, it has become my mission to have pink waffles if they are available in any new place we go. That meant it could only be one place for breakfast/brunch – naked bakery. Home of CBD lattes and pink waffles. Such a cute vibe with pinks, gold’s and a flower wall. A definite must if you are in new town. 10/10.
We followed up pink waffles with a Indian takeout back at Alicia’s flat, the weather was not on our side. We had wind, rain, hail, snow and sunshine. After having a trawl through deliveroo and just eat, I found Indian Lounge Edinburgh on Deliveroo – their menu was clearly labelled vegan, gluten free etc. They had run out of tofu curry so I opted for aloo Gobi and it was delicious. 7/10 for a takeout curry.
The end our trip Alicia took us to Beetroot Sauvage, literally the cutest eco urban community yoga organic cafe ever! Don’t let the exterior put you off, it’s cute AF inside. Plus the food is amazing. They serve amazing full English (well I guess Scottish in this case) breakfasts, french toast and more. We all went for the sourdough french toast, Chloe and I had ours topped with banana and coconut bacon and Alicia had berries. The coconut bacon was out of this world. This place is a must, 11/10!!
Chloe also picked us up some rocky road, again AMAZING!
And that’s is for our super quick vegan food tour of Edinburgh. Let me know if you have been to any of these places or know of anyone else amazing to check out.
