If you are gluten free and live in Edinburgh you would have heard of Loudons before. They are known for offering a great choice of yummy gluten free breakfast, brunch, lunch and cake options and their staff are very clued up on gluten free, cross contamination etc which is always good to hear!
Recently, I went in for brunch at the weekend and had their bread and dip for starters (their gluten free bread is amazing, even my non-gluten free boyfriend loves it, and you can buy loaves to take away with you!) and their Loudons Benny for main (eggs benedict on gluten free muffins). Both were absolutely delicious and I was sad when my plate was empty.
Out of their cake selection I have only ever had the scones but I can safely say that these are THE BEST gluten free scones I have EVER tasted! You can tell that they are freshly baked and they even come with butter and a little jam pot! These have become a staple Friday morning treat for me, they are that good!
The restaurant itself is cosy and trendy and usually very busy around lunch time but they manage to seat people fairly quickly. It is a bit more pricey then some other places for central but would definitely recommend it for somewhere a bit special nonetheless!
