The Scottish Cafe&Restaurant, Edinburgh

There are people in this world that absolutely LOVE food and it's written all over them. The owners of The Scottish Cafe&Restaurant, Victor and Carina Contini are like that. Their third and newest restaurant is at the National Gallery of Scotland
right in the middle of Edinburgh city.
 We had the pleasure to taste their butteries at the Taste Festival this year and been planning to go for lunch ever since. The menu at the cafe consists of breakfast served until 11.45 am, sandwiches, pate's, butteries, cheeseboards and also afternoon & cream teas served from 3pm to 6pm. Not to mention their very tempting looking pastries and cakes... They also have a restaurant menu that has got all the Scottish classic starters and mains in it.
 After doing an open bus tour around Edinburgh's old town with my mom and brother we were all starving so we headed for lunch and ordered haggis for my mom, soups for three and hot butteries served with a seasonal mixed leaves salad. I had the 'Loch Arthur cheddar and our own unsmoked Borders boiled ham', it was lovely and greasy and hot, perfect lunch for a windy day after spending all day outside.
 Next time I have a Sunday off I would love to try their 'Sunday roast lunch special: Classic traditional Sunday roast, served with crispy potatoes and fresh organic summer vegetables' from 12 noon to 5 pm, for £13.95...
