A little corner of France in south Morningside, Marie Delices is the fruition of French native Marie-Claire Lafont’s long-held passion for Brittany and its most famous foods – les crepes. Bright pink and lilac mark out this friendly cafe on Comiston Road. Inside, the room is brought to life by pretty crockery from Quimper and a collection of antique furniture that once belonged to Marie's grandparents, and there are French magazines dotted around the place, so you can improve your French while you’re here. The crepes and galettes are made in the traditional Breton way, using buckwheat flour imported from a family-run mill in France. This naturally gluten-free flour gives a distinctive nutty flavour to the crepes, which can be filled with sweet or savoury ingredients, comme vous voulez. There are also cakes and biscuits made fresh by Marie each morning, and as if that wasn’t enough, the café is licensed so you can sample a bollee of Breton cider with your lunchtime galette.
- High point: Les crepes!
- Low point: Those who don't live locally will be envious
Authentic Breton creperie and tea room. Traditional crepes, buckwheat galettes made of imported flour, imported Breton cider and other tasty cakes freshly baked every morning by Marie. A little piece of Brittany in Edinburgh, with family furniture and crockery all imported from France.
