Great Lunch Spots in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is known for its historic sites and beautiful natural setting. Visiting the famous Edinburgh castle or climbing up majestic Arthur’s Seat are must-do activities for anyone travelling to the Scottish capital. However, in recent years Edinburgh has become known for more than just its famous architectural and geological structures - it is now also known for having a stupendous cuisine scene.

The Leith neighbourhood of Edinburgh, located in the city’s northeast corner along the Firth of Forth, has gone from a once dodgy area to an up-and-coming hot spot for fresh modern restaurants and hip young companies. Today it plays host to some of the best eateries in all of Edinburgh, including Michelin-starred ‘The Kitchin’.

The Kitchin, run by head chef Tom Kitchin and his wife Michaela, serves up classic Scottish ingredients in classic yet modern French recipes. If you’re interesting in trying a range of course, go for the set lunch menu and really take-in this fine dining experience.

If your hotel in Edinburgh is located in old town, then the Grassmarket area is an ideal place for a midday meal. ‘The White Hart' Pub offers a brilliantly cosy eating experience, with a menu full of comfort foods like mac and cheese, an Aberdeen Angus beef burger and a hearty steak and ale pie. Just up from the White Hart, ‘Oink’ on Victoria Street serves up the best pulled pork sandwich in town. You’ll know you’re at the right place when you see a full hog roast sitting in the window- not for the faint of heart (and probably not the best place to take a vegetarian!).

Another great lunch spot in Edinburgh is the famous ‘Elephant House’ café on George the 4th Bridge. While this café is most famous as the place where JK Rowling wrote the beginnings of her Harry Potter series, it is also a brilliant eatery in its own right. Make sure to save room for something sweet after lunch, as the Elephant House has an array of delicious shortbreads and cakes.

Finally, the ‘Mosque Kitchen’ pretty much has it all. It’s a unique cultural experience, a great meal and a bargain all in one! The Mosque Kitchen was originally just the cafeteria of the city’s mosque, located near the university. The curries became so popular that it has since expanded to accommodate more diners, particularly during the busy lunch hour.

Thus, there are so many great places in Edinburgh to enjoy a delicious midday meal. From fine dining to delicious bargains, you can find it all in this burgeoning food city.
