GO Sandwich Bars in Edinburgh

Sandwich bars in Edinburgh Edinburgh city centre is awash with great tasting snacks, that’s right, the sandwich bar invasion has arrived and with it as many baguettes, paninis and ploughman’s as even the hungriest shopper can handle.

Café Odile [map], Cockburn Street, is a great place to rest after covering the shops nearby. This is the place for French snacks and sandwiches and serves a wide range of customers from families to students who pack out the small café bar.

Get away from the hustle and bustle and pull up a chair at The Elephant House [map], George IV Bridge. This is the perfect place to sup a coffee and eat a huge cake whilst perusing the daily papers.

If you like to match your upmarket purchases with a similar café, you should pop over to Plaisir du Chocolat [map] on Canongate. This classy tearoom offers Parisian-style to the tired shopper with a range of gourmet teas and luxurious patisserie treats.

The wealth of choice continues into the New Town and West End of Edinburgh.

Get a light lunch from No.28, the cool and classy café within The Georgian National Trust for Scotland [map] headquarters. This impressive building is located at Charlotte Street, and if you like the café you’ll love the restaurant next door at the unimaginatively titled No.27, which serves a range of Scottish delicacies.

Glass & Thompson [map], Dundas Street, is a light and airy deli with heaps of olives and tomatoes on the menu. This is a roomy place to reflect on your visit to Edinburgh and the perfect way to round off a busy day shopping or to rest before you hit the nightlife later on.

If you don’t have time to relax over a coffee and sandwich, L’Alba d’Oro [map] is the perfect place for you. Located at Cannonmills, L’Alba is an authentic Italian takeaway offering filled rolls and handmade pizzas. Also the ideal place to get your authentic espresso and cappuccino.

There’s also a range of well-known coffee shops such as Starbucks and Café Nero as well as Edinburgh’s own collection of Howies. The flagship Howies is located at Waterloo Place [map], and offers visitors a pleasant dining area on the edge of Calton Hill.
