After a wee stroll on the beach or even a wild swim, there is no better feeling than to sit down with a warm cup of freshly brewed coffee and a cake that just hits the spot. As you watch overexcited dogs roll around the sand and couples holding hands on their first dates while you sip your coffee and admire the picturesque Edinburgh seaside. One of the top 10 places to eat and drink with a view in the UK can be found at The Beach House Cafe, as claimed by The Guardian.
The same people also own The Beach House Bakery which provides freshly baked bread daily, as well as cakes, sorbets and gelatos made from scratch with locally sourced, organic ingredients. The café also offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks for those looking for something a bit more substantial. For those with a sweet tooth, the cinnamon sugar and chocolate sauce waffles are worth a try. What is more, The Beach House Cafe has its own garden where they grow herbs, salads, spinach and flowers that are used every day.
So after a day of trying to get the sand out of your furry child’s fur, trying not to burn during that one sunny day of the year and exploring the cute shops on the High Street, there is no better place than to watch the Firth of Forth estuary in the distance with some excellent scran. Edinburgh and its surrounding areas have magnificent scenery that can be admired either from inside the café or from the tables outside. It does get really busy during sunny days, and tables can be booked for the evening, however, it is first come first served during mornings and early afternoons.
The Beach House Cafe is a place for catch-ups with friends and family, a quaint outing by yourself, and the enjoyment of great views and delicious food with a wee gin and tonic.
