There’s a side effect to running that I love – apart from the increased fitness and also less stress overall – it allows me to eat what I want. And one thing that I normally do while on holiday is eat breakfast (compared to nothing during normal days).
Having started the day early with a 1hr run, I was starving and wanted something a bit more substantial for breakfast, cue Google and the Edinburgh Larder Cafe. On the map it was close to the Museum of Childhood that I mentioned previous on my review of the Wedgewood Restaurant. It’s actually quite easy to spot the Edinburgh Larder because of their baby blue door.
I normally don’t allow myself a full breakfast even while away, but since that my run was done, I went all in with the Bacon + Eggs + Sausage + Mushroom combination – and I was not disappointed!! Ingredients were fresh and eggs were not overcooked – sausage was a bit salty though. Ms Buddha went for the slightly healthier alternative of Eggs + Mushroom + Tomato and beans.
I’d like to take a moment to say that the staff at this place was wonderful, it was very busy the day we came and the open kitchen was staffed by 2 young ladies who managed everything very well. The only waitstaff was also very efficient and helped out in the kitchen when possible – great teamwork.
By the time we finished, the place had gotten a little quieter and we sat for a bit to enjoy the rest of our coffee – excellent start to the day.
