Nestled in New Town and overlooking Princes Street Gardens and the Scott Monument, The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant makes for a very pleasant spot for enjoying Afternoon Tea while soaking up the views. It is a perfect location to sit back, relax and catch up with a friend.
Everything is made to perfection and all tastes incredible.
The eatery – which has recently reopened with a smart new look – has created a unique Edinburgh Gin Afternoon Tea especially for this years Festival Fringe, giving you a refreshing and luxurious break between shows.
Everything is made to perfection and all tastes incredible. The sumptuous spread features a selection of dainty petit fours made with Edinburgh Gin’s phenomenal liqueurs alongside warm fruit scones with sweet strawberry jam and cream.
For savory, there’s freshly made sandwiches on soft white bread with a variety of delicious fillings and an Isle of Mull cheese scone topped with delightfully punchy Scottish smoked salmon.
To finish it all off, alongside a pot of Brodies tea you’re also served a luscious glass of Edinburgh gin and tonic which beautifully compliments all the tasty treats on offer.
There was no choice of tea given which was slightly disappointing as it would have been nice to see a selection, including herbal tea blends. However, the quality of the food and drinks served was exceptional and the importance placed upon locally sourced and Scottish produce made this a very special Afternoon Tea.
Make sure to put time aside during your Fringe itinerary to experience the delights The Scottish Cafe has to offer in its Edinburgh Gin Afternoon Tea – you certainly won’t be disappointed!
