One of the great things about Edinburgh is that the city center is compact so most of the sights are within walking distance. If you’re planning a day out and about round the town then you should make sure to start it in style with a delectable meal. Breakfast in Edinburgh can take many forms but the meat eaters amongst you should definitely try a traditional Scottish fry up.
The “Full Scottish Breakfast” generally consists of a mixture, or all, of the following: sausages, bacon, eggs, haggis, mushrooms, tomatoes, tattie scones (potato scones), hash browns, black pudding, toast and lashings of coffee or tea to wash it all down. A good many bars and restaurants offer this hearty meal, but it is hard to beat the belly busting “Bigger Breakfast” of the Kings Wark. As a Sunday morning treat after a Saturday night partying there is simply no better way to restore your sense of well-being.
Edinburgh breakfasts come in all shapes and sizes. If you are looking for a lighter, and healthier option but still want to try traditional Scottish cuisine, why not head to Loudons and try their delicious oatmeal porridge with banana and syrup or fruit compote.
