The Scottish Café and Restaurant

National Gallery of Scotland The Mound Edinburgh EH2 2EL

Located in a recent extension to the National Gallery, this place is a handy sanctuary not just for gallery-goers but also Princes Street shoppers and sightseers traversing town. Behind large glass windows looking over Princes Street Gardens, the artfully tiered layers of the interior contain a coffee lounge, daytime café and lunchtime restaurant, with the food on offer ranging from generous scones to accomplished dishes featuring scallops or roast pork belly. A commitment to local suppliers and time-honoured Scottish recipes is evident right through the menu.
