Last week I started my birthday in style. Breakfast at one of my favourite spots to spend time at in Edinburgh. The Ivy on the Square epitomises old school British charm with a dash of Parisienne flair. Edinburgh is one of the lucky neighbourhoods (Glasgow you are coming soon!) that is home to The Ivy Collection restaurants, an extension of the acclaimed The Ivy in London.
If you are looking for a memorable start to your birthday The Ivy on The Square offers inimitable service and vibrant surroundings. It is the perfect place to sip on a Mimosa and celebrate your birthday with your loved ones. Or if like us, you celebrated your birthday socks off the night before, opt for The Ivy’s homemade blend Bloody Mary.
The Ivy on the Square has an all-day café-style menu that ranges from breakfast through to lunch and dinner including light snacks, sandwiches and afternoon tea.
The breakfast menu is ridiculously reasonable for the surroundings and service you receive alongside your breakfast. Choose from Full Scottish breakfast £13.50, Eggs Royale £9.50 or healthier options like Avocado on Gluten Free toast for £7.25. Whether you are accompanying that with a pot of The Ivy’s own blend tea or a ‘Thirst Quencher’, you will not be disappointed.
Obviously, breakfast at The Ivy on the Square doesn’t need to be solely reserved for birthdays. As we enjoyed our breakfast we shared the room with other customers that had popped in for breakfast after the gym, ladies having a quick morning catch-up and a family on holiday to name a few. It was a beautifully eclectic mix of people that made for a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Breakfast is available from 8am-11:30 Mon – Fri.
There is also a dedicated weekend brunch menu on Sat & Sun from 11-4pm. On weekdays you may be able to get a walk-in table, but I would definitely recommend booking your spot for weekend brunch.
