One thing is for sure about my recent trip to Scotland was that I didn’t stop eating. I was truly in food heaven. On our second day in Edinburgh, Charlotte and I visited a place called Badger & Co for Brunch which is located in the prime Shopping District between George Street and Princess Street on Castle Street. After reading up online that this is the former home of Kenneth Grahame, the author of Wind in the Willows. I knew I had to go.
The breakfast menu offered a variety of items from the blogger’s favourite Avocado on Toast to The Full English. I went for the Fruit Platter, a portion of the Doorstop Toast and a fresh Orange juice. Charlotte got the Smoked Salmon Bagel with Scrambled Egg. I hadn’t given much thought about the Doorstop Toast when I ordered it but it really was Doorstoppin’. Seriously, though, it was the most amazing bread and came with homemade jam. The Fruit platter had a bit of everything and was a really generous portion. Between the fruit and toast, I was stuffed. Charlotte also really enjoyed the Smoked Salmon Bagel, it looked pretty darn amazing!
I really liked that although there is the Wind in the Willows theme going on, it isn’t shoved down your throat. I think they have got it just right. It’s beautifully decorated yet still pays homage to the Wind in the Willows roots with a secret garden and Toad Hall which is actually a meeting room. As for the food, it was absolutely delightful and gave us a great boost for our day of exploring ahead. I’ll certainly be back in the future as their Lunch & Dinner menu’s sounded incredible and the staff there were all really lovely and attentive.
Are you a fan of Wind in the Willows? Have you been to Badger & Co?
