Eating Out In Edinburgh: Brunch at Red Squirrel

Independent Food, Edinburgh

Checking out of your hotel? You’ve gotten up early because you have to pack? It’s late morning and all that rushing around made you starving? Your first destination has got to be brunch! We stayed in an Airbnb while we were in Edinburgh, but even when we stay in hotels we don’t pay for bed and breakfast. There are so many amazing places in the city to get a great, independent breakfast so why waste it on mass produced (chain-)hotel food? In my book, you should never waste a meal.

Good Coffee in Edinburgh

As soon as we sat our little bodies down the waitress popped over and asked if we’d like any tea or coffees. She brought over proper good mug-fulls of strong coffee with a bourbon (or custard cream for the teas) and the sugar jar was a wonderful ex-treacle tin. I’ve got to try that one myself at home!

There was a good variety of breakfast options depending on your tastes. So many places just offer you the Full English, so I was delighted by their twist on French Toast with cheese and spicy beans.

Best Breakfast in Edinburgh

I heard a Red Squirrel burger is also a great choice for eating out in Edinburgh so we’ll definitely have to go back and try those fellas (if you can prise me away from the spicy edamame beans) and it looks like they have a great selection of ales and craft beers, but we were much too sore from the weekend to try those. Very un-brunch-like.

Supplied with the bill was a tray of retro sweets… well, you’ve got me sold!

Outfit Post: Flowers at Edinburgh Castle

Stepping out of the train station onto Princes Street in Edinburgh was a lot like exiting the tube into Times Square in New York. The city slaps you in the face with it’s bustling streets and eery skylines littered with grand, old buildings.

There’s no doubt about it, Edinburgh is incredibly beautiful with it’s streets spiralling round the great Edinburgh Castle. The Castle Gardens were such a breath of fresh air from the crazy city life, much like Central Park is an escape from New York. Oh yes, I think I like it here: The New York of the UK.

My dress was a gift from Simply Be for lending my services to be a judge at the Leeds heats of their modelling competition earlier this year. I chose a size 12 which is about typical for this style of dress and it fits just a little loose, like a good smock dress should.

The boots are from what is fast becoming my favourite shoe brand, Minnetonka. They’re so rare in the UK (which may be why I like them so much) but if you can pick up a pair you’ll fall in love with their crazy comfort. These boots do slip down a lot while wearing tights, though, but the fringe at the back is so cute.

I love the train ride up to the city from Leeds, along the west coast of England and past Berwick Upon Tweed where I’d love to visit next, with stunning views of the North Sea – top tip, sit to the right (in the direction of travel) for the best view!

Edinburgh was great for taking outfit photos as there are so many tourists on the streets, people barely notice you’re spending way too much time in front of the camera. There were a few bemused looks, but I think I’m finally nailing this confidence thing and I love that I’ve got these memories of our jaunt through the beautiful Castle Gardens.
