Where to go #1 Edinburgh







Curious Tearooms, 13 Frederick Street, EH2 2EY 

You know when you just get a little bored of Costa and Starbucks (shock horror), well that happened while we were away and quickly went in search of a cute little coffee shop… and we found one! Curious Tearooms looks just as cute on the outside as it does on the inside.
I am an avid mocha drinker so mine was an obvious choice while my boyfriend steers clear of coffee at all cost so he chose a hot chocolate. The ladies behind the counter were very friendly and to our surprise it is a “take a seat and we’ll bring the menus over”. We settled in a window seat watching the crazed Christmas shoppers go by while looking at the menu. If you like tea, you are sure to find on you like as there is an extensive choice at almost 3 pages. I cannot wait until we go back to Edinburgh as Curious Tearooms is top of the list for coffee!



Above Restaurant, 3-5 Rose Street, EH2 2PR

Above Restaurant is above the Abbotsford pub funnily enough, it’s a small restaurant with a circular bar with a wonderful woman that served us. This is a place where you can dress smart/casual or casual, which I love. The food was the best food we had in Edinburgh, it's just our luck that we tried another restaurant for my birthday meal and it wasn’t the best to say the least, but hey ho. We tried haggis, it would have been rude not to, and to our surprise I really enjoyed it as did Matt which is even more surprising because he is so damn picky! This seems like a great place to have a quiet romantic meal but also some where you can bring the family for amazing food!


Juniper Bar, 20 Prince’s Street, EH2 2AN

Now we stayed in the hotel that the Juniper bar is in so this is where we ate the first night and where I discovered that cocktails are 100% not my thing…unless it’s a Pina Colada, then I’ll have those all day, every day. It’s a great bar with a stunning view of the city, and the “street food” which is the menu of starter size portions in case you feel a bit peckish when out, which is always after a couple glasses of wine. We tried the ox cheek nuggets, chunky chips and a venison scotch egg, they were all delicious and we were fighting over who has the last of what.  

(More pictures to come if I can actually find them on my external hard drive that is brimming to the max with photographs)
