Well past its 70th year, the second-oldest deli in Scotland has deservedly become something of an Edinburgh institution. Within the cherry red exterior is a well-stocked shop with a good balance of everyday and more specialist items, from Cashel Blue cheese to Rwandan coffee. Daily dishes offered – eat in or takeaway – include a decent array of salads, bakes, daily specials and treats, while Friday evenings herald a supper club, with a weekly changing menu of three courses for £18.95 plus no-corkage BYOB.
