The Kilted Donut
A familiar site from Edinburgh's food markets, The Kilted Donut have now set up shop in Great Junction Street.
A good doughnut is one of life’s ultimate treats, and luckily for the people of Leith some real specialists have arrived with inventive recipes and a flourishing takeaway business. The Kilted Donut started life as a market stall, but now operates from a compact yet cosy unit with a tantalising counter display and a few tables for sit-in customers, who can wash down their sweet treat with an Eteaket tea or Williams and Johnson coffee. Classic flavours like the jammy – a miraculously unstodgy marriage of fresh jam and delicate dough – are always available, while specials are served on a rotational basis (it’s worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page to see what’s on each day). For something a little different try the crème brûlée with a crème patissiere filling and a crisp burnt sugar surface, just like the dessert that inspired it.
