I’ve made no secret that I’m a fan of The Huxley, for informal dining and drinks I think it’s ideal. I’ve visited several times for the site, but also because it’s one of my personal ‘go to’ places. This time I was back to try their Sunday Brunch.
Brunch and afternoon tea seem to be the two dining styles which have become more and more popular over the last few years. Brunch makes me think of lazy days: too late for breakfast, too early for lunch, and should always be taken at a leisurely pace. Papers optional.
The brunch menu at The Huxley is so much more than you expect. It’s creative with lots of curve balls and covers every one of your Sunday moods, from a full cooked, to smashed avo, to a fish finger sarnie, it’s got it all.
If you pick the right seat (little alcove off to the left as you come through the door, book to secure the prime position) then you’ll even get a rather spectacular view of Edinburgh Castle.
It was a job to choose what to have from so many options. My friend went for the Fish Finger Sandwich which was made up of your homemade style fingers of battered white fish and huge doorstops of fresh white bread.
I had the Poached Eggs and Avocado on Toast. The eggs were perfectly cooked, I’d say the avocado was a little smooth for me but still tasty, and I do like this dish with a chilli element, so that was a positive.
This is a great spot for Sunday Brunch and a menu that is going to get a long time to get old, there’s lots to try!
