Aizle, Edinburgh

Wow. To be honest I could stop the review there. Aizle was wow, from beginning to end and it’s been a while since I have had a meal that blew my socks off. Not one dish disappointed. Each was creative and interesting and left me asking ‘so how did they do that’.  I had high hopes when we first entered the restaurant and I spied chopsticks.  I love eating with...

The Little Chartroom

They say all good things come in little packages and they, whoever they are, would be right because what The Little Chartroom lacks in size it certainly makes up for in personality and culinary flare.   We ventured to the Little Chartroom for brunch on our last morning in Edinburgh and it certainly gave us a fantastic farewell to this beautiful city.  Situated on Leith Walk, with its mix of faded...

Blackfriars

On our September trip to Edinburgh we went to this fantastic little place to eat called Blackfriars. On our trip to Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago we heard that the restaurant bit of Blackfriars is currently closed. It's a real shame. The news reminded me of the great meal we had, which I didn't blog at the time. So here it is now for you to read. The bar...

LoveCrumbs

You can never have too much cake....and at LoveCrumbs they have so much cake on offer you just need to keep going back to make sure you don't miss out on something.  I've never come across anywhere quite like LoveCrumbs. Not only do they just serve cake and drinks but the cake menu is always really interesting.     This time I had passionfruit meringue tart and Mr Frivolitea had cherry...

Smith and Gertrude

I've been following Smith and Gertrude for a while on Twitter and after our visit to Pairings in York in January I was excited to try somewhere else that paired wine and cheese.  We were not disappointed! I love the feel of Smith and Gertrude, communal tables and music on vinyl, it's a great place to spend an evening.    We both decided to go for a 'native' flight of...

The Haven cafe, Edinburgh

On our latest trip to Edinburgh we decided to find somewhere for breakfast near where we were staying in Leith. A quick ask of Twitter and Brew and Brownie had found The Haven Cafe for us.   It's a great little place, full of quirky vintage items and lots of locals. Always a good sign.    Mr Frivolitea had the full breakfast and I had sausage, tattie scone ( which...

Guest blog – Brew Lab training lab

For our anniversary the ever thoughtful Mrs Frivolitea bought a session at Brew Lab in Edinburgh on artisan coffee brewing. I'm not sure what this says about my coffee making skills but it was, nonetheless, most welcome. A nice surprise ahead of the day was a message that I was the only person booked in. Rather than cancel, we were offered free places for any friends who might care to...

Timberyard

Last night we went to one of the most interesting places we've eaten in for a long time. Timberyard is tucked in a side street behind Edinburgh Castle and the entrance does not fully prepare you for the wonder inside. The name I guess should give a big clue but as we walked in to the building and saw the big open space of the main dining area my sense...
