A friendly welcome at the ever popular Haven Cafe in Newhaven

TheHavenCafe insideMy favourite cafe in Edinburgh and coincidentally one of the first locations to show my work!

This week I popped in to The Haven Cafe which is situated opposite the Chancelot Mill at 9 Anchorfield,
Edinburgh to restock my wall of sketches and grab a gluten free bacon buttie and mug of tea.

The Haven serves the best breakfast in Edinburgh and their relaxed atmosphere, vintage decor and superb home style baking makes this Newhaven landmark a favourite pit stop of mine.

Since 2011 the Havenettes have been serving fine food to the people of Edinburgh and almost as long had a gallery of Edinburgh Sketcher prints for sale on their wall.

Pop in for a bite to eat and check out my seaside inspired wall of sketches, all framed and available to buy off the wall.

Bank Holiday Breakfast

Croissants_GFThis morning I started the bank holiday with a delicious breakfast of croissants and pain au chocolat, thanks to Genius Foods.

 

When these gluten free goodies arrived in the post recently I couldn’t wait to pop them in the oven. Being a coeliac has meant saying goodbye to flaky pastry and crispy patisserie, or so I thought. But thanks to the geniuses at Genius Gluten Free the list of yummy treats not available to coelics is getting smaller every day.

 

Keep up the good work, the pain au chocolat are particularly good, even the wheat eating Mrs Sketcher thought they were superb!

 

 

 

The perfect view for breakfast in Edinburgh

Apex_InternationalA visit to the Apex International Hotel in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket provides a stunning view.

The fifth floor restaurant boasts 2 AA Rosettes and an exciting menu of Scottish cuisine, focusing on locally sourced seasonal produce. As well as serving breakfast for hotel guests the restaurant also serves a 3 course dinner menu between 5.30pm and 9.30pm, Tuesday to Saturday.

 

But the real attraction has to be the view from this perfect setting, follow the link below to book your place and dine beneath Edinburgh Castle, I’m sure it looks equally stunning in the evening.
