Edinburgh Larder


Eleanor CunninghamA

About Us

The Edinburgh Larder was opened by Eleanor Cunningham in 2009 with the aim of bringing fantastic artisan produce from around Scotland into the centre of Edinburgh and offering customers a real taste of Scotland. The Edinburgh Larder started in October 2009 as a cafe just off the Royal Mile and expanded to include a bistro in the west end of Edinburgh in 2012. The first #TasteYeBack blogger meeting will be held at Edinburgh Larder Bistro and where we’ll talk about local produce and share some tasters.
