I’ll keep this brief – a quick Friday read for some Sunday brunch inspo.
Brunch is served from 11.30am on a Sunday only, which is great news for all slovenly people like me who don’t believe in brunch before midday.
The level of service and romanticism is the exact same as on a dinner service with highly attentive, polite, well trained staff and candles on the tables.
The “brunch” offering is small with only six items to choose from. They do offer a selection of starters and mains too but if it’s a Sunday afternoon, I’m either having a brunch or a roast. Nothing else will do.
The portion size, for the quality and price was as expected for one of Edinburgh’s hottest new restaurants. For the average bruncher, though, it wasn’t big enough. One small slice of sour dough and only one poached egg just didn’t satiate my hungry belly. The salmon and avocado were generous, however. The poached egg was lovely and runny.
The brunch offering is obviously a side to the main menu – which is incredible, as you can read in my original review and as is evidenced by their award winning and full five star rating on Trip Advisor. However, for the intrepid brunch seeker it might come up a little short.
There are elements that can be improved upon if they want to offer a more varied and “brunchy” brunch menu, but for the business model they have I do think this suits them well.
Once again, I just have to mention that the staff are amazing and you get complimentary sweets at the end of brunch too. The most buttery shortbread was a welcome end to our delicious brunch.
* This meal was free of charge as I was invited to try the brunch but as always every word, thought and opinion is entirely my own.
