Breakfast

The first breakfast brunch venue in Amsterdam finally makes it to Scotland!

ALL DAY Breakfast / Brunch and Lunch menu. Vegan - Vegetarian and Gluten Free dishes and options. Fully licenced and located in the centre of town just off George Street and 5 minutes from Princes Street and the Station.

Dutch inspired and owned.

Homemade drinks and all food prepared fresh daily.

We pride ourselves on sourcing top quality local ingredients and make our products fresh on the premises as much as we can. And of course, we also brought our Dutch roots with us as well. You’ll find it on the menu and in the restaurant itself. Fancy some traditional Dutch ‘appeltaart’ (apple pie)?

Our waitress was super friendly and gave us useful recommendations as to what to try. I had the Emperors Eggs Royal with the homemade Hash Brown (yummie), and my friend, the Classic Eggs Benedict, and we were both very happy with our choices. We will definitely go back there when in Edinburgh again!

While we do our best to make sure everyone sits down on time, this isn't always possible and we thank you for your understanding. We are aware of our issue with the table varnish itself, causing it to appear sticky and unclean, I can assure you they are not. Saturday is our busiest day of the week. May I suggest you dine with us midweek if you'd like a calmer and quieter atmosphere. Regards, Emma Restaurant Manager

The breakfasts are the best in Edinburgh in my opinion the pancakes are huge the handmade hash browns are so flavoursome and far better than the usual frozen hash brown you get with a usual fry up, scrambled egg is another level, the bacon is clearly from a high quality butcher. They also do great coffee and fresh homemade gingerbeer that gives you a a good fresh firey wake up call. Will be back again and again. Booking is key to avoiding disappointment.

They are telling their family and friends. Our food and coffees were delicious and the decor kept everyone gazing round for our whole visit. Very busy which is wonderful to see with staff taking it all in their stride, smiling all the while. Bravo and thank you once again!
