Today is the last day of my first year winter break. I went travelling, and one of the places I have been was Edinburgh. I was brought to this cafe by my friend there, Agnes.

It’s called Urban Angel cafe. You can google map if you would like to visit one day! XD

Clean and simple facade!

This was what I saw when I first went in; busy workers, and FOOOOOOD

They have a very warm and antique-looking interior, makes it look like a home to dine in.

Had brunch

Had brunch there and guess what? They serve brunch until 5pm! Isn’t that good?! Imagine you would like something savoury instead of teas and cakes in the afternoon.

I ordered this, eggs benedict with smoked salmon.

I must say this is really goood! YUMS!

The eggs: 

The poached eggs are just right, the yolks were not too watery nor solid. Most importantly not so sourrrrr!

The salmon:

Just lightly smoked, not so heavy for a brunch. And look, it’s actually a lot!

The buns:

No special comments on the buns, but they taste good with everything. So I guess that’s very much it? XD

I was actually quite impressed with this set of brunch, though it is a little pricey for me. If you refer to the menu, it’s £8.90 for this plate.

Scottish breakfast tea.

I couldn’t remember if this tea that I ordered was decaf-ed? I guess so? That was my first time having tea during an eat-out. It was quite good! Light, and fragrant. I would prefer just the original tea without any stuff added! *sip*

P/S: My friend ordered one with haggis as her side. THEIR HAGGIS IS SO GOOOOD! In case you don’t know what a haggis is:

Haggis is a savoury pudding containing sheep’s pluck heart, liver and lungs; minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach and simmered for approximately three hours. Most modern commercial haggis is prepared in a sausage casing rather than an actual stomach.

*Definition is from Wikipedia.

It was my first time tasting it, definitely didn’t scare me out! It has that kind of lamb/sheep/mutton smell that I find lacking in some of the UK’s lamb meal XD. I love it! In contrast I have tasted haggis in another restaurant that was a total put-off!

Ending with a polaroid photo of me in front of the cafe.

I would say overall I am very satisfied with this cafe. Be it the food, the services and all. Made my morning very bright though that morning Edinburgh was very sunny but also super windy!

Till then, Happy no-more-holiday! 😦
