If you've overdone it the night before, there's nothing like a good breakfast to get you back on track.
Of course, all our properties are self-catering, so you can rustle something up in the comfort of your holiday home. But if you don't feel like cooking, you don't have to go far to find an amazing breakfast in Edinburgh. Here are some of our favourites ...
10 Melville Place, Edinburgh, EH3 7PR
This cafe is just around the corner from several of our West End apartments. The Painted Rooster offers delicious traditional Scottish breakfasts with a wide choice of items, which you can pick and mix to create your perfect hangover cure. They also have an excellent selection of breakfast rolls and specials. Plus, breakfast is served all day, so an early start is not required!
5 Canonmills, Edinburgh, EH3 5HA
The Bluebird Cafe is in Canonmills, so it's ideal if you're staying just north of the city centre. This small cafe offers amazing full Scottish breakfasts, filled tortillas, scones and their famous breakfast bombs stuffed with sausage, jalapenos and cheese. Again, breakfast is served all day long here.
15 Blackfriars Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1NB
If you're in the Old Town, The Edinburgh Larder is a great choice for breakfast and brunch. Tucked away not far from the Royal Mile, it's a wee hidden gem! This place is all about fresh, local and seasonal produce, guaranteed to pick you up after a late night. The Brioche Eggy Bread is an absolute treat! Their full breakfast menu is available until 11.45 am and brunch is served until 2 pm.
3a St Andrew Square, Edinburgh, EH2 2BD
Dishoom is a bustling Indian-Iranian cafe on St Andrew Square in the city centre. You might not necessarily think of going here for breakfast, but you really should! With options such as chilli cheese toast, spicy omelette, bacon naan rolls and date and banana porridge. For the full works, it's got to be the Big Bombay or Vegan Bombay. And why not add a Bloody Mary or breakfast cocktail for good measure? You'll have to get up a little earlier for this one as breakfast is served until 11.45 am.

"What an amazing property. The rooms, décor, equipment, furnishings, etc were all high end and luxurious. Brilliant central location. We would highly recommend a stay here. Only problem is you might not want to leave."
"An exceptional place! Next to the high street and close to the public transport facilities. The place is sparkling clean and very well maintained. It is spacious and cozy. Lorna is extremely helpful and quick on her responses. 10/10 will stay at this place when I go back to Edinburgh."
