Edinburgh Larder

15 Blackfriars St, Edinburgh EH1 1NB

$25 - $50 Recommended New Editor's Pick

Launched in 2009, The Edinburgh Larder Café has built a solid reputation as being the place to eat seasonal, locally sourced, and tasty food in the heart of the city. We’re not shy to mention that we’re well known for our legendary brunch too!

The Edinburgh Larder is now open during the evenings on Friday and Saturday nights for Larder Late’s.

There’s the same delicious local produce available in the form of sharing plates as well as a fantastic range of drinks from local craft beer to carefully crafted cocktails and a great wine list. Our range of wines was pulled together in collaboration with Wine Wednesdays from North Berwick and features firm favourites as well as some more unusual varieties.

Back to our breakfasts... Our regular favourites include a mighty full breakfast, veggie breakfast, eggs benedict or smoked cod, chorizo, and potato hash with a poached egg. We also love lighter options like a buttery breakfast bap or our porridge cooked to order with a selection of seasonal toppings and toasted nuts. All to be enjoyed with expertly crafted coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice.

We make our coffee with love and care using beans roasted locally. Our teas are blended by Edinburgh based Eteaket. We have a range of Scottish craft beer and delicious local soft drinks too.

Our staff all love to bake, so seasonal cakes are a specialty of ours. Our dark chocolate and nut brownies are regularly hailed as the best in town and are always gluten-free – though you would never know!

Booking Notes:

We're beyond excited to welcome you back. We've listened to your feedback and moved to this online booking system.

Tables are available for 1 hour slots during the day or 2 hours for Larder Late’s.

Our Brunch menu is served until 3pm each day. If you would like a table for coffee and a cake please book from 2pm onwards.

Larder Late’s sharing platters are available from 4pm every Friday and Saturday.

I saw online that this was one of the top rated breakfast/brunches in Edinburgh, so I knew I had to give it a try. Having grown up in the restaurant biz, with my family’s restaurant, I had absolutely no problem with booking a table and coming back later in the day. And you know what? It was absolutely worth it! The service was attentive without being overwhelming, the food was fresh, beautifully cooked, and perfectly seasoned, and the restaurant itself was tidy and comfortable. If I had to say anything negative, it would be that the matcha latte could have done with some extra whisking as I found clumps of the powder in the bottom of my cup, but it wasn’t much of a bother to me. My only regret was not buying a tote, but it just gives me more reason to come back when I’m back in the city!

Came again for breakfast having done so last time we were in Edinburgh. Food was delicious - perfectly poached eggs, lovely bacon and nice "proper" bread. The coffee was gorgeous too - just wish you served it large cafetieres rather than single cups but that's a minor quibble! We like the overall feel of the place and online booking was easy.

Loved my first time at Edinburgh Larder. Met a friend, we were welcomed and sat down at our table, orders taken and food was incredibly quick! Absolutely delicious food. Great coffee and a great spot in the middle of town for breakfast.

Fantastic little find. Gorgeous food, and fantastic staff. Left my bag and they searched for my phone number, called me to come back for it and kept it safe. Love this place

One of the best meals I've ever head. It seemed rather expensive, so more of a splurge than a place I would go to regularly. But definitely a treat!

Delicious food featuring Scottish produce. Simple menu with focus on quality. Friendly and attentive service. Relaxed and informal ambience. Try to avoid table in window directly beside the door if the weather isn’t good. A surprisingly large proportion of cafe’s customers can’t close a door!

Lovely cafe atmosphere. Great coffee. Lovely attentive staff. Perhaps food could have been slightly hotter. One ordered not from the menu and food could maybe have been presented slightly nicer than just lumped on plate but other dishes were beautifully presented. Great that it opens for pre work breakfast at 8! Will definitely be back.
