Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh, EH8 8DX

Situated next door to Holyrood Palace, this café is the obvious place to grab a sandwich or hearty bowl of soup after visiting the Queen’s Gallery and Palace, or after an invigorating trek round Arthur’s Seat or tour of the Scottish Parliament. With…

Husband and wife team Colin and Irene Chiu run this friendly neighbourhood restaurant perched just off the main road through Meadowbank. Named after an emperor’s summer palace, Xanadu’s own decor is simple and functional with Chinese scenes on the pale…

The Scottish Parliament

0.5 miles
Horse Wynd, Edinburgh, EH99 1SP

Designed by Spanish architect Enric Miralles, who died before its completion in 2004, the Scottish Parliament building occupies an architecturally diverse corner of Edinburgh at the foot of the Royal Mile, with Dynamic Earth, the Queen’s Gallery and the…

The New Masala Pot

0.5 miles
25 Parsons Green Terrace, Edinburgh, EH8 7AF

Takeaway review With an extensive if slightly predictable roster of Indian and Bangladeshi meals, the fact that the list of specialities is almost longer than the selection of traditional curries doesn’t exactly guide customers towards what they do…

Spoilt for Choice

0.6 miles
19 Marionville Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5TY

Billing itself as Edinburgh's new home of 'soul food' this Afro-Caribbean take away in Meadowbank has big plans: lunchtime opening starts in May 2012 and they are scouting sites for a dedicated restaurant. These are bold moves for a tiny site with just…


0.6 miles
75 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8AU

Meaning ‘home’ in Swedish, Hemma is the latest addition to Mike and Anna Christopherson’s string of Scandinavian style bars. And with its soft furnishings and quirky interiors, it does indeed have a laidback, homely atmosphere, despite the modern feel…

Foodies at Holyrood

0.6 miles
67 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8AU

Holyrood feels strangely disconnected from the rest of the city despite (or because of) being home to both parliament and palace. Still, should you find yourself down this way at least you can get a decent bite to eat. A fairly mainstream menu features…

0.6 miles
82 Canongate, Edinburgh, EH8 8BZ

This head-turning piggy takeaway, with its signature roasted hog in the window and a simple menu of pig in a roll – large, medium or small, has moved in near to the Scottish Parliament and well placed to catch tourists tripping up and down the Royal…

The Safari Lounge

0.6 miles
21 Cadzow Place, Abbeyhill, Edinburgh, EH7 5SN

The Kilderkin

0.6 miles
67 Canongate, Edinburgh, EH8 8BT

From its location to its choice of pizza toppings, Kilderkin is slightly odd but pretty great. Initial impressions are of a slightly dodgy boozer, with its dim lighting, basic decor and unprepossessing exterior. Inside, however, you’ll find one of…

Mr Hot Potato

0.6 miles
12 Wolseley Place, Jock's Lodge, Edinburgh, EH8 7AD

The Regent

0.6 miles
2 Montrose Terrace, Edinburgh, EH7 5DL

Its unusual shape and slightly offbeat location are matched by The Regent’s leftfield tagline as ‘Edinburgh’s Gay Real Ale Pub’, and it successfully manages to smoothly blend both factors of this vaguely oxymoronic claim. Indeed, it doesn’t take either…

This social enterprise cafe serves great value meals and coffees with a diverse menu for those that fancy something a bit different for lunch without breaking the bank. Something for carnivores, vegetarians, cake lovers. Children welcome, high chair…

Café Piccante

0.7 miles
7 East Norton Place, Edinburgh, EH7 5DR

An integral cog in Broughton’s flamboyant, predominantly gay, after dark merry-go-round, Café Piccante isn’t your usual chippy, with its disco ball, late night drinks licence and DJ on Friday and Saturday nights. Catering unapologetically to the fried…

The Engine Shed

0.7 miles
19 St Leonards Lane, Edinburgh, EH8 9SD

The Engine Shed acts as a training school to springboard adults with learning difficulties into meaningful, satisfying work. Trainees prepare, cook and serve all the food, as well as making the famously good bread, tofu, hummus and cakes, all of which…


0.7 miles

The Manna House

0.7 miles
22–24 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RG

It’s almost impossible to begin describing the Manna House in anything but a gushing tone. Small but perfectly formed, the reputation of the place as possibly Edinburgh’s best artisan bakery is spreading across the city, and what’s most inspiring is…

The Sheep Heid

0.7 miles
43–45 The Causeway, Duddingston, Edinburgh, EH15 3QA

As Edinburgh’s oldest pub, having first opened its doors as far back as 1360, Duddingston’s Sheep Heid Inn has a true country pub feel despite being just a few minutes’ drive from the centre of town. Inside the bar’s main area, the decor is understated…

Fresco Cafe

0.8 miles
223 Canongate, Edinburgh, EH8 8BJ

The Holyrood 9A

0.8 miles
9a Holyrood Road, Edinburgh, EH8 8AE

Beer and burgers are the main draw at Holyood 9a, and both are worth a trip to this corner of the Old Town. A selection of 11 beers is permanently on draught and, combined with another 10 rotational pumps, constitutes one of Edinburgh’s best selections…

The Auld Hoose

0.8 miles
23–25 St Leonards Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9QN

With its classic interiors and traditional pub front, one could be forgiven for mistaking the Auld Hoose as a run-of-the-mill, slightly antiquated boozer. But with a jukebox featuring the best of goth, punk and metal music, and being a meeting place for…
