Coffee in Edinburgh: Strumpets

I believe that Strumpets is a true hidden gem in Edinburgh serving delicious coffee. Tucked away on William Street in the West End, the light blue facade brings a pop of colour to the Georgian New Town. With a large range of teas, coffees and hot chocolates as well as plenty of food options, it’s…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Burr & Co

Burr and Co has established itself in my heart and has earned a place in my, “Top Five Places for Coffee in Edinburgh,” obviously a very coveted place to be. Located on George Street in central Edinburgh it’s a great place to stop for lunch or coffee when having a peruse of the shops or…

Where to Brunch in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh

Brunch can be such a fun little event. It involves three of my favourite things; food, coffee and friends. There are so many great places in Edinburgh that would be fab for brunch but I thought I would share some Bruntsfield locations as the area is bursting with coffee shops and cafes. There’s nothing like…

Coffee in Edinburgh: Oqo

I am a huge fan of studying in coffee shops. I prefer it to trying to work in my bedroom because there is less to distract me, not to mention the fact that I can’t make decent coffee at home. I’ve made a list of all the coffees shops/cafes in Edinburgh I want to visit…

Kerbside 139: Edinburgh’s Street Food Destination

All of my favourite nights are spent in good company, eating good food and listening to good music. Kerbside 139, the new street food destination of Edinburgh, provides all that and more with a buzzing atmosphere and plenty of space to dance off all the calories that are waiting to be consumed. Based at the…

Darnley’s Gin Christmas Festivities

Earlier this month I had the pleasure of attending the Darnley’s Gin Christmas Table event along with some of Edinburgh’s loveliest bloggers. This was my first event that I’ve been invited to as a blogger and I was so excited to work with a brand that’s based in Scotland. Darnley’s Gin is a family owned…

Chocolate Tasting at York Cocoa Works

It started in 2011 with a chocolate emporium that would “create a home for true chocolate lovers” when York Cocoa House opened their doors for the first time. This year, they took it further and opened their own chocolate manufactory, in the heart of the Viking city where they produce chocolate from scratch. Located on…

The Long Dog Café and Boutique

Few cafes have completely captured my heart in the same way that The Long Dog Café has. Whilst Edinburgh may have a vast collection of coffee shops with aesthetics I adore, when I am home in Aberdeen, I make my way to the west end and treat myself to a freakshake. My love of milkshakes…

My Birthday Milkshake Crawl

Milkshakes are fabulous, aren’t they? I loved them when I was little but as I got older and moved to Edinburgh, my love for them has grown into an unhealthy obsession. My friends seem somewhat amused by my fascination, as it seems to be recognised as a big part of my personality to them. So…

Taste of Italy

This is just a little blog post about the restaurant that Dan and I went to on Saturday. I would have written it entirely about the chips that we ate but a fuller review of ‘Taste of Italy’ is more interesting. For those of you who don’t know, the majority of the UK has been…
