If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for new places to head to. In Edinburgh, I feel like I have a handful of favourite spots which I rotate through. So, when I need to meet with people it’s always fun to go somewhere new.
So, when I found out that the Edinburgh Radisson Blu have started serving Morning Tea – it sounded too good to miss! Every Monday-Friday from 10am-12pm you can indulge in a whole host of morning treats, which will get your day going. As well as a great way to treat yourself, it would be a fab way to enjoy a meeting if you’ve got a lot to chat over.
We kicked off the morning with copious pots of tea, although freshly squeezed juices and coffees are also available. Rather delightfully, the tea comes from the capital’s Eteakat, which is such a lovely Edinburgh touch!
We kicked things off with the bacon rolls, because really, is there ever a better breakfast choice? These were absolutely delicious, and we wolfed them down in record time.
On the same level were a handful of freshly baked goodies – fresh croissants which we smothered in jam, as well as warm chocolate cookies, which were brought home and enjoyed with coffee later in the day.
There were also fresh pancakes and maple syrup – seriously, can every morning be catered like this?
The middle tier of the Morning Tea was filled with tea classics. Homemade scones, jam and clotted clean were too good to resist, and the fresh berries were a fabulous nod to the upcoming summer season.
We also had fabulous little parfaits to enjoy – vanilla yoghurts with granola and more chopped berries. This is probably my favourite breakfast to enjoy on a regular morning, so as you can imagine, they were very much hoovered up!
The top tier was, if it was possible, even more indulgent! With freshly baked muffins, and cream-filled Danish Pastries, these were enjoyed with the last of our teas and coffees, with the left overs boxed up to enjoy in the afternoon when we started to feel peckish!
Served up in the Radison Blu’s stunning Itchycoo bar, their Morning Tea is an absolutely glorious way to start the day!
It’s priced at £40 per couple and to book a table for Morning Tea telephone Radisson Blu on 0131 557 9797 or visit her hotel website here
