Where to eat during Edinburgh Fringe Festival – ideas for brunch, lunch and dinner
Edinburgh Fringe Festival time can be full on so you’ll need to think ahead for where to go to get some decent food to keep yourself going. Here are some suggestions for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Start your day properly with a bacon naan made using Ramsay of Carluke bacon, or some date and banana porridge. Feeling more adventurous? Try their Keema Per Eedu – Chicken keema with chicken livers topped with fried egg and served with homemade rolls. Refills for the porridge and chai. 👍
