What people say about Breakfast at The Scottish Cafe

Perfect Breakfast Place

We’re visiting from Southern California and looking for a good breakfast place with great coffee and comfortable atmosphere, and boy did we find it. From the excellent food, coffee, and service to the view of Princes Street Gardens, this was the perfect place for us!

Jerry

Loving breakfast!

Visited for breakfast this morning without a booking and thankfully unlike the Scottish cafe approach we were seated at a lovely table in the heart of the restaurant. A warm welcome from Adam who very helpfully source a favourite drink which wasn’t on the menu. Food was wonderfully fresh, tasty and very sizeable portions. Thanks to such a great team!
