an experience

afternoon tea

Thought to have been invented by the 7th Duchess of Bedford as a means to counteract the “sinking feeling” which she experienced in late afternoon, this glorious tradition has since become a much loved staple of British socialising.

Today, we invite you to join us at the Grand Cafe to enjoy our very own revival and interpretation of Afternoon Tea- handmade with love and care, it is truly a joy to behold, and one we are happy to share with you. Fully handcrafted by our in house Pastry Chef, our selection includes hand cut finger sandwiches, savoury bites, miniature desserts, and truly scrumptious home made scones and jam.

Enjoy a selection of sweet and savoury treats in one of Edinburgh’s most handsome venues. For the ultimate Afternoon Tea experience, enjoy our live pianist every Saturday from 2 – 5.30pm.
