It’s subjective to consider what are the best cafes in Edinburgh. It depends on whether you’re looking for the best Scottish breakfast, the best coffee, or just the best place to work on the laptop. For years, I’ve bounced between the best cafes in Edinburgh with their delicious third-wave coffee and comfortable, cozy nooks to get my writing done.
One of the reasons I love the capital of Scotland so much is how many great restaurants you can find in Edinburgh. There are plenty of cuisines, delicious comfort food, amazing cafes, and some surprising hidden gems for fine dining. There are also some restaurants that I wouldn’t recommend for various reasons. But here’s my complete list of the best restaurants in Edinburgh.
I’ve always wanted to do an Isle of Islay tour, and attending the Whisky and Music Festival with Highland Explorer Tours was easily the best option. As I’ve stated before, I don’t drink a lot of alcohol, but I was really happy to sample different whiskies from seven of the nine distilleries on Islay, not to mention all the other attractions, food, and stories on the tour.
If you’re visiting Scotland, you definitely need to include a 5-day Highland tour as part of your itinerary…if you have the time. While you could rent a car and make your own tour, traveling with a tour company such as Haggis Adventures is a great choice for several reasons.
I was quite excited when I first noticed the Chocolatarium museum in Edinburgh. I mentioned it on my food tours, but I knew I needed to visit myself. Now that I’ve been, I can definitely recommend it as an awesome attraction in Scotland’s capital.
