Breakfast here is served from 8am-12pm on weekdays and until 3pm at weekends, so perfect if you are having lazy, long lies in at the weekend. They have a huge choice of things to have for breakfast and really good options for gluten free, vegetarians and vegans too. Read more about Loudons here.
This is such a lovely space to wile away your morning for breakfast or brunch. Even better they serve it all day so you can have your porridge with fruit, full Scottish or for something different, their Mexican eggs any time of the day you choose. Tuck in and enjoy the tasty food as well as their fab music which you can follow on spotify too. Read more about Piece Box here.
Located in Canonmills, Di Giorgio is independently run by a husband and wife team. The care they have taken to ensure everyone is welcome and enjoys their experience is plain to see.

On a sunny day you can enjoy waffles as well as a range of eggs including Eggs Benedict, and my favourite Eggs Florentine al fresco. Inside the deli offers a range of cheese, breads and charcuterie to take a way for lunch afterwards. Read more about Victor Hugo Deli here.
With their huge windows, large pavement seating area and vibrant city centre location Ryan’s Bar is the perfect place to eat well and watch the world go by.

Not just for ice cream (though it is that good you could still be tempted for breakfast!) this old Edinburgh and Musselburgh favourite is a great place to head to for breakfast, especially with the kids. They also serve their breakfasts all day and are really good value for money.
