REVIEW – Coffee and cake at Scotch Whisky Experience

Despite it being a leading Edinburgh tourist attraction, the Scotch Whisky Experience is actually one of my favourite places to nip in for a tea and cake whilst in the Royal Mile area.  The small coffee shop is situated in the basement next to  the excellent Amber restaurant.

I have always found the staff to be really friendly and efficient here and that’s before I mention the stars of the show here – the cakes!  

You can download a copy of the Amber coffee shop menu here.  The prices are very reasonable for the location at £1.30 for a tea (herbal available) and coffees starting at £1.70.  Cakes and traybakes are around the £2 mark and are freshly made with an ever-changing variety to choose from. 

You can of course, visit here before our after experience the tourist attraction which we recently reviewed

If you find yourself wandering around the top of the Royal Mile needing a wee break, then look no further that this gem.
