In a striking setting at the end of the famous Royal Mile in Edinburgh, The Café at the Palace of Holyroodhouse is one of the ultimate afternoon tea destinations. Its outdoor terrace in the historic Mews Courtyard gives diners views over Arthur's Seat, and the tea is even served in specially commissioned chinaware.

Awarded a Visit Scotland Taste our Best accreditation, menus use only the very finest of Scottish ingredients and produce. Delicate finger sandwiches are packed with classic fillings, such as smoked salmon and cucumber, while the selection of freshly baked cakes and pastries include Victoria sponge, cream-filled eclairs, and the staple of warm scones with a variety of jams and Devonshire clotted cream.

A great selection of Tea Palace loose leaf teas are served at The Café at the Palace of Holyroodhouse Edinburgh, and diners can also order a range of premium champagnes.

Boasting a stunning location and contemporary terrace, The Café at the Palace of Holyroodhouse is 15 minutes' walk from Edinburgh Waverley Rail Station.

    Everything was absolutely fabulous

    The tea options were splendid and had something for everyone in my group. The vegetarian platter was a wonderful addition. Much of my party particularly enjoyed the sponge cakes and scones, but all of the food was absolutely delicious. It did take a little while for the food to come to the table, but other than that there were no issues with the service

    We had a great time! Our waitress Patrycja was instrumental to our experience. She was very kind and helpful. I will recommend the Café at the Palace to anyone I know visiting Edinburgh!

    We arrived early and they graciously got us seated. It was pouring rain. So we were very happy. The tea was lovely and the food was great. I have been trying to get the recipe for the plain scones we had there and also the clotted cream. Is there any way you would send the recipes to me? Thank you very much. We loved it so much we went back for lunch another day.
