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!
Whether you ARE a pooch or are a human WITH a pooch, hopefully you will find this blog of some help if, like us, you are out and about and looking for somewhere for lunch or coffee or even an evening meal where dogs are just as welcome as people INSIDE!
Everywhere listed here is somewhere we have visited ourselves with our two terriers, Toby and Suzy, and where we have all been made welcome.
We live in Edinburgh, Scotland, so many of our recommendations are in our neck of the woods. But we get out and about quite a bit too, so plenty of other places feature here as well!
If you are visiting one of our favourite haunts and happen to see us there, do come and say hello!
