Those looking for some mid-afternoon refreshments of a late yet luxurious lunch in Edinburgh should look no further than The Cottage Bistro. A humble venue that offers a warm welcome and a delightful atmosphere in which to dine, The Cottage Bistro usually serves some delicious bistro style dishes, yet they also offer an incredibly rich session of Afternoon Tea.
Gourmet Society members can enjoy everything The Cottage Bistro has to offer in tandem with another diner at an excellent price when they call in advance with their card, and with all the irresistible goodies served it would seem almost foolish not to grab a friend and head straight to the charming little eatery.
The standard offering of afternoon tea, known as the Kir Royale Afternoon Tea, is an indulgent affair that hits every carving with grace. The savoury side is handled with the delicate egg mayonnaise and cress finger sandwiches, the hearty smoked salmon and crème fraiche enriched potato scone, the wonderful minted cucumber crowdie rye bread sandwich and the exquisite honey roasted ham and Brie adorned croissant. The sweeter side is addressed with such fancies as classic macarons, heavenly seasonal fruit meringues, the special Chef’s sponge cake of the day and the beloved homemade scones, complete with Chantilly cream and jam.
Those looking for an extra touch of opulence can opt for a glass of either prosecco or champagne as an elegant addition to their already excellent session of afternoon tea. Whatever the occasion, any time that requires a little pampering should be spent at The Cottage Bistro.
