Blankets are provided at Peter’s Yard so you can persevere with alfresco eating even in the colder Scottish months. As testament to its popularity the outdoor tables are filled with coffee-drinking students and pastry-munching professionals all year round. This style-conscious Swedish bakery-cum-cafe adds a distinctly continental flavour to Middle Meadow Walk, where bright window seating provides the perfect people-watching opportunity. For a comforting treat amid the baskets of speciality breads and buns try a hot chocolate subtly flavoured with cardamom. The selection of cakes is impressive, with some inventive creations like courgette, fig and chocolate loaf added to an already ample spread of authentic Swedish bakes. Lunches are a select array of pre-prepared sandwiches and salads made with creative flavour combinations, such as a roll with butternut squash, chickpeas and sunblush tomato pesto, or a salad with orzo pasta, beetroot, dill, chives and capers.
- High point: A place to relax in style
- Low point: Could add a selection of smoothies
A unique store that deserves its reputation for integrity, Peter's Yard is a destination for foodies looking to treat themselves. This Swedish bakery focuses on quality rather than quantity. Three or four varieties of fresh artisan loaf include rye and sourdough, varying in flavour throughout the week, and they are famous for their knäckebröd (crispbread). Sandwiches, muffins, breakfasts and cakes are available to take away or enjoy on the premises, as well as a good range of teas and coffees.
