Food and drink
Breakfast is just fabulous here. If you are in the mood for the full cooked, go for The Full Circle - Stornaway black pudding, haggis, eggs, portobello mushroom, toast, roast tomato, home-made Lorne sausage, streaky bacon and eggs of your choice. Quite probably the best breakfast in Edinburgh.
Breakfast! Eggs benedict with spinach, smoked salmon or bacon. 2 toasted muffins, two prfectly poached eggs, fresh spinach and hollandaise. Best I have had. And I have had a lot!
Smoked haddock in a creamed leek and new potato stew topped with herb, garlic, hazlenut and cheddar crumble.
Stripped back to the original stone walls, the Circle is long and narrow so if you have a huge crowd this won't work for you. Groups of two and four are the easiest to seat. Slate floor, clever wee nooks hewn from the stone with a wood bench or two jammed in. They make the best of the space but it is limited. Atmosphere is buzzy and happy.
With a big, genuine smile.
If you walk down to the very end of Broughton Street or Dundas Street, they both converge on this corner. It's on the way back from The Botanics or on the way down from all the galleries.
£3.95 for a substantial bowl of home-made soup served with ripped bread; £6.95 for huge open sandwiches; £8.95 for a home-made burger with all the bells and whistles.
