Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Hendersons have been catering to the vegetarians and vegans of the city for decades, with extensive menus of healthy dishes and hearty comfort foods. Holyrood has a casual and welcoming feel, accentuated by quirky décor with mismatched lamps, colourful furniture and walls covered with reclaimed wood. Breakfast options are served daily – all day on Sunday – and include gluten-free shakshuka and a tofu, haggis and veg filled breakfast burrito, with smoothies and super juices which go down a treat. While Hendersons in general is known for high-quality veggie food, the street food options are a clear bonus here. Veggie versions of steak sandwiches, Philly dogs and chorizo burgers are supplemented by the famous salads, as well as classics like falafel, spanakopita and veggie haggis parcels.
