• Bacon, quite thick and very tasty. I can't make bacon like this myself, for reasons I don't understand.
  • Haggis
  • Potato scone. Mmmm...
  • Usually, the fried egg here is more classic in appearance, but this tasted as good as ever.
  • Sausage. A very good one.
  • Fried mushrooms - while often inedible in fried breakfasts, these are really very good. Again, just down to good ingredients, I think.
  • Tomato
  • Lots of thick-cut toast, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
  • Butter
  • Marmalade
  • Coffee, black as the sky midnight on a moonless night. (Thanks for the correction, Graham.)
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice. Terrible things were done to oranges on site to make this delicious.
  • should be 'black as *midnight* on a moonless night, shurely - photo_gram
  • do they fry it or grill it? - photo_gram
  • old habbits die hard.. - photo_gram
  • I had assumed it was fried, but maybe not...
  • The mushrooms are properly browned, not just barely cooked. - Jenny_D
  • Their scrambled eggs are excellent too - creamy and well seasoned. - Jenny_D

Perfect Breakfast?

I think the breakfast from Kilimanjaro Coffee on Nicolson Street in Edinburgh is my favourite around here. Perhaps the only thing it's missing is a hash brown as well as the potato scone, but you can hardly complain about not having enough food. Some might remark on the absence of black pudding, but I think haggis is a better alternative. Marmalade for the thick cut toast is a very nice touch as well.

This was £9.45 in total, but well worth it for the quality ingredients, I think.
