The Westroom is the epitome of cool; sleek, modern design with accents of more traditional, classic pieces. It feels like a page out of the Farrow and Ball brochure. Think Brooklyn crossed with Scandinavia.
The day time menu offers breakfast, brunch and small plate options; we’d gone for breakfast so we had breakfast but we’re verrrrry tempted by the small plates.
Both of us ordered eggs benedict and coffee. My decaf Americano was lovely and didn’t have the ‘burnt’ taste decaf often does AND it came with a wee homemade buttery biscuit that Gregg Wallace would be proud of.
You could also opt for a Bellini to go with your eggs benny for an extra £1.50 – absolute steal!
Eggs Benedict – muffin, poached eggs, bacon, spinach and hollandaise sauce
Fluffy but crisp muffin; salty, crisp bacon; wilted spinach with a hint of sea salt; just cooked poached eggs with a big, runny yolk. All that was topped with a lovely, fresh, sharp hinted hollandaise sauce.
Would I go as far to say it’s the best eggs benedict I’ve had? Yes, I probably would.
My only complaint was that the yolks were so runny I could have done with another muffin to mop it all up!
The service was impeccable, as was the food, setting and atmosphere.
The Westroom is set to be one of my firm favourites in Edinburgh.
With a daily offer, there’s something for everyone. I’m already planning my return for the small plates.
