Well-established veggie restaurant serving a strong selection of mains and desserts
There’s no doubting the Henderson family’s place on Edinburgh’s food scene. Established in 1962 as a shop for the produce of Janet and Mac Henderson’s East Lothian farm, this flagship venue led the way for the vegetarian restaurants and delis that followed, and has rightly earned its place as something of an institution. The restaurant enjoys a loyal following – so too their Thistle Street bistro around the corner, and adjacent gallery and deli.
In line with their motto (‘eat better, live better’), food is fresh and flavoursome, with ingredients locally sourced to create everything from rich daily stews and risottos, to bean burgers and savoury crepes. There’s also a decent selection of desserts and cakes to choose from.
