The Broadsheet Bistro, located at 26 St Giles Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, overlooking The Royal Mile, is renowned for serving local Scottish specialities with flair.

Besides breakfast, lunch and dinner, there is also an opportunity of indulging in a cup of afternoon tea with an assortment of confectionery. The modish interior of the restaurant belies its history, dating back to the 19th century: once the site of a newspaper printing press, the site has been revamped into a boutique hotel, Fraser Suites Edinburgh, of which The Broadsheet Bistro is a part.More
