Bessie’s Tea Room, Culross. Very friendly. Came here twice this afternoon – first for lunch – a large bowl of Moroccan bean soup, well worth the £6 price tag – later for tea and one of their famous double decker cheese scones – yummy!
Finsbay, Milngavie. Delightful. Thoroughly deserves its five star trip advisor rating. Lively and upbeat in the early evening. Cullen skink and salmon salad both excellent. Highly recommend. Just round corner from start/end of West Highland Way.
Second visit 14 Aug: Delighted we were able to borrow TWO dog bowls so Suzy could both drink and eat too. (We had our own food for her). Delightful place with a great menu – clearly very popular
Bulland’s Coffee House, Milngavie. Cheap and cheerful. Very quirky interior! Coffees and soups Ok but the other food I would not recommend unless you are happy with ‘stodgy’! Just round the corner from the start/end of the West Highland Way.
The Olde Toll House tea room in West Linton – just next to the playground in the park. Good soup but they don’t do real bread here – not enough demand apparently. Coffee machine is noisier than a washing machine so bring your ear plugs!
Florentine’s in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. Another favourite haunt. Lunch yesterday – cosy as ever on a blustery day. Try the salad with avocado with an extra half-half portion of chicken and bacon! Yummy!
If you are a regular here, ask for a loyalty card – you can earn credits towards a free coffee!
PS pain au raisin really tasty – ask for it warmed up!
Victor Hugo’s deli, coffee lounge and champagne room. A favourite haunt just off the beautiful ‘Meadows ‘ in central Edinburgh.. Their current special – avocado on sourdough bread – is highly recommended!
