Edinburgh Larder is a deli and licensed café on Blackfriars Street in the heart of old Edinburgh. Proudly flying the flag for all things Scottish, the team here is passionate about local food, and serve a delicious and diverse range of Scottish produce. There’s far more to be enjoyed than just haggis and whisky; the deli counter is inspired by Continental cuisine, with seasonal produce sourced from Scotland. Here you can get your hands on smoked and cured meat and fish, chorizo made with Scottish pork, venison salami, Scottish cheeses, homemade chutneys, oatcakes, oils, biscuits and chocolates.
Most of the produce can be taken away, but the best way to really get the full Scottish experience is to take a seat in the café and tuck into a taster platter, or one of Edinburgh Larder’s tarts, toasties, soups, salads or homemade cakes. Sandwiches are made using bread from Au Gourmand, a nearby bakery that produces fantastic artisan loaves and rolls. There’s a changing specials menu for those who fancy something a bit different, and if you’re after something sweet, the scones served with Scottish clotted cream and homemade jam are particularly popular.
Edinburgh Larder is a tea-lover’s heaven, with special timers used to ensure that your tea is brewed just right. Tea comes from eteaket, on Frederick Street, and is sourced by Erica Moore, a talented tea selector who travels the world to find the finest teas. Coffee is supplied by Artisan Roast, who roast their own coffee for a truly delicious-tasting bean.
If you prefer your drinks colder (or more alcoholic), there’s a brilliant selection of wines from Friarwood, who specialise in sourcing interesting bottles from small artisan vineyards. There are beers from Stewarts and Falkirk Tryst – both fantastic local ale producers – and a number of spirits sourced from Scotland. Edinburgh Larder is also open on Friday and Saturday nights, so there’s even more opportunity to enjoy a drink and some lovely food in a relaxed and cosy environment. For an authentic Scottish taste with a real difference, look no further than Edinburgh Larder.
