The Pavilion, Elie

Dogs not allowed inside here, but there is a sheltered, covered verandah outside, which is a sunny spot for lunch – a favourite for us. Great soups, plentiful paninis, and sweet potato fries. Chicken, avocado and mango salad also a great dish! Five minutes walk to the award winning beach.

Elie Beach

Red House Garden Centre

Red house Garden Centre cafe near Aberlady – The Potting Shed. Lovely sitting outside for lunch on a sunny summer afternoon – a sheltered sun trap. The old castle makes a great backdrop, and being in a garden centre means that there is always plenty of colour around you while you sip your coffee. Dogs also welcome inside. Get there early if you want food. They often run out of everything by early afternoon. Outdoor tables only during Covid.
