Treacle Bar&Kitchen, Edinburgh

I have wanted to try Treacle since it opened a bit over a year ago and now I finally managed to go there for lunch. We have been to their sister bar, Hamilton's in Stockbridge couple of times on a Sunday afternoon and always left satisfied.
They have funny tables and benches outside that are packed when it's nice outside. Treacle's menu is a funky mix of sharing platters, pies, burgers, noodles, salads and sandwiches. They also do breakfast until 12pm during the week and until 6pm Saturdays and Sundays.
The interior designer had some fun designing the decor of this place, it is irresistibly cute with comic book type of illustrations on the walls and candles on every table.
Roast vegetable enchiladas with melted cheddar, sour cream and refried beans. Hooray! See how much cheese there is on top of that? That's what I like to see/eat. Perfect, I liked it a lot. My pal Lynsey had a crispy falafel and sesame burger with spiced mayo and home cut parsnip fries and seemed to like her food as well.
I was hoping to have room for dessert as well, but no chance. All very tempting pudding options, like 'Belgian waffles with Nutella and vanilla ice cream', were scribbled on a blackboard next to our table. Ah well, one more reason to go back to Treacle that is then!
cosy, relaxing interior

seriously cute toilets: pink for girls, blue for boys
