Travelling to Edinburgh for the festival? Want to get out of the festival from time to time? Want to feel like a local? Here are some places to get some eats that are different and uniquely Edinburgh.
- Vino at the Arches – 37 E Market St, Edinburgh EH7 9AB
This is a part of a whole street that you can parade down and find a lot of fun and interesting shops and coffee bars, however this is the place to be on a sunny festival day. You can sit outside or in, with views of Calton Hill, and a chosen place to watch fireworks over New Year’s and the festival. They have an ever-changing wine list, beers, and you can get great recommendations on booze to take away. Get down here PRONTO.
2. StarBar – 1 Northumberland Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6LQ
This is a great bar hidden in the new town, and is worth the travel! Hosting an extensive jukebox (10p a play) and a beer garden out the back. It is a great place to have a wild night or hang with the locals by the bar.
3. Tasty Buns Bakery – 67 Bread St, Edinburgh EH3 9AH
This is a great wee place that has amazing coffee and cake to die for. The owner is lovely will recommend the best cake for you, and nab the couch at the back to get the best seat in the house. Enjoy!
4. Black Bull – 43 Leith St EH1 3AT
So this is a great rock bar in the city centre, hosting a great jukebox (girl loves her jukebox) and a great selection of booze, plus a pool table. A great place for alternative crowds to meet, but welcoming to everyone.
This is my little list – let me know how you find them!
