Edinburgh Larder Café

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!

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 speciality 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!

The Edinburgh Larder Café can be hired as a private venue – contact us to find out more.

Beer Menu

Paolozzi Helles Lager, 5.2% – 330ml £5.25
Lager. That most taken for granted, everyday of beers is actually one of the most complex from a brewing perspective, and given due care and imagination really can be sublime.
Brewed with 100% barley malt, ‘munichised’ water, and, most importantly, given a proper lagering (cold conditioning) period for 5-6 weeks following fermentation, this 5.2% abv Munich helles style lager beer has a perfect bitter-sweet balance and fabulously sparkling appearance. Not pasteurised this lager, so it’s extra fresh and keeps its natural fullness of flavour.

Z.E.E.P. Mediterranean Pale, 3.5% – 330ml £4.95
Zero Energy Experimental Pile: an easy-drinking but distinctive 3.5% abv pale ale. Lemon peel and rosemary compliment the hop bitterness with a distinctly Mediterranean flavour.
Eduardo Paolozzi created ‘Zero Energy Experimental Pile’ between 1969 and 1970, named after a nuclear reactor.
The impact isn’t devastating, but our ‘Z.E.E.P.’ packs a punch while requiring little effort to enjoy.

Moonstrips Smoky Wheat, 5% – 330ml £5.25
‘Moonstrips’ takes its name from Eduardo Paolozzi’s 1967 screenprint portfolio ‘Moonstrips Empire News’. The beer’s recipe was inspired by David Bowie’s ‘Starman’, so we were drawn to the evocatively spacy ‘Moonstrips’ name.
Moonstrips has a ‘hazy, cosmic jive’. Typical of a German-style Hefeweizen, the look is a hazy golden-orange and the nose is a decidedly wheaty-banana. But rising through the wheatiness
is a complex, rich smokiness reminiscent of an Islay whisky.
The taste is crisp and creamy, as sweet banana notes are undercut by the subtle peated smokiness. A satisfying thirst quencher, it pairs well with seafood and antipasti.

Thistly Cross – Whisky Cast Cider, 6.7% – 330ml £4.95
The perfect marriage between Scottish methods and Scotland’s favourite craft cider. They use Glen Moray distillery casks to give their cider it’s warming notes of Oak Vanilla and Honey.
