Radisson Collection

Located in the Old Town near The Royal Mile, the Radisson Collection offers stylish 5-star luxury and now a new monthly extravagant brunch in their Cucina restaurant which is one of our favourites in the city (read our review). The three-course brunch menu includes a chef’s table piled up with items like Scottish shellfish, salads, continental charcuterie and cheeses and breads to help your self to. An extensive mains menu including old classics, vegetarian and gluten-free options and lots of desserts to choose from. A DJ and a saxophone player create a perfect ambiance and there is a Bloody Mary and a Belini station too! This brunch takes place on the last Sunday of every month and pre-booking is essential.

Loudons bakery and cafe is located in Fountainbridge. They bake all of their bread and cakes on site and offer an all-day weekend brunch menu that caters for most dietary needs and includes options like American style pancakes, a full breakfast and scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. It is popular so there is sometimes a wait for a table, but it’s worth the wait!

Checkpoint is located in Bristo Place near the University and has an industrial contemporary interior mixed with the feeling of your own front room, think cosy and relaxing. For any sleepy heads breakfasts run throughout the day until 5pm in tandem with their lunch options. We recommend their rye bircher muesli the duck egg, sausage and bacon on toast or the brioche french toast are all great!

Dishoom is located in St. Andrew Square and offers a contemporary Indian menu influenced by the street food of the Irani cafes of Bombay. Unlike our traditional British curry restaurants where dishes can pack a spicy punch Dishoom’s brunch menu goes for flavour over spices. They cater for vegan, vegetarian, and dairy free and don’t visit without trying the Kejriwal or the Egg Naan Roll and wash it all down with their incredibly moreish chai tea!

Honeycomb & Co is located in Merchiston Place and whilst relatively new to the area has quickly built up a loyal following in the Bruntsfield area. Their brunch menu is a real winner mixing classic options with contemporary flavours – highlights include their fruity french toast, spiced Korean bacon and eggs and their signature Honeycomb Full breakfast. Brunch runs from 12 – 4pm at the weekend so booking is advised.

Toast

Toast is located on The Shore and is Leith’s first wine cafe. Toast is open 7 days a week from early to late and has a simple concept; good wine, good food and good friends. Their weekend brunch much like its other food is based around carefully selected local seasonal organic foods with strong Middle Eastern influences and the outside seating overlooks the Shore and is ideal for alfresco dining when the weather gets warmer. Toast is certainly a Hidden Edinburgh favourite!

Finn & Bear located on the Shore next to Toast is also open 7 days a week serving lunch, brunch, and dinner. It has a rustic interior with wooden floors and reclaimed furniture and an outside waterside seating area which makes it a popular location all year round. Staff are friendly and their extensive menu means that there is something for everyone at brunch time, if you go we recommend the Big Bear Breakfast and their Eggs Benedict!

Slightly further out of the city centre down in Portobello The Skylark is a fun quirky rustic style cafe bar with a relaxed friendly atmosphere. The cafe is open daily and the menu offers French-inspired dishes using locally sourced products. For brunch they have some fantastic croquet options as well as great breakfast items like toasted macadamia granola, smoked haddock chowder and porridge with Ayrshire whole milk.
