Three places in Edinburgh to taste ‘Bake Off’-worthy treats


We’ve spent ten weeks in the company of Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, salivating through our television screens at the sight of The Great British Bake Off’s amazing cake creations. Tonight, having reluctantly waved farewell to Selasi (and eight other equally talented bakers), it all comes to an end in a heated showdown between Candice, Andrew and Jane.

We’ve all got our favourites, but there’s a pretty slim chance that we’ll be able to sample the winner’s magnificent creation! Instead, why not head along to one of these brilliant Edinburgh bakeries? Trust us – they’ve got cakes and doughnuts that will send you into a euphoric, sugar-filled stupor!

Lovecrumbs, West Port

Fans of gluten free goodies will fall head over heels in love with this West Port bakery! Open every day and situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, Lovecrumbs are known for their showstopper cakes which change every day. Lavender, orange and white chocolate sponge, anybody? Check out their official website.

Deadly Donuts, Argyl Place

Founder Freddie Spindler spent a few years as a chef in London’s Michelin-star restaurants before moving back up north and opening this laid back donut shop! Known for his Kinder Bueno donuts and ‘bacon bars’ (that’s bacon in sweet dough!), Freddie’s always around to have a chat while you snack! Check out their official Facebook page.

The Caffeine Drip, Melville Place

This South African style lunch spot in the West End had a quiet opening back in 2014, but it swiftly became one of Edinburgh’s few ‘Five Star’ food locations. They’re known for proudly embracing stodgy comfort cooking, and their Oreo brownies are pretty much life changing! Not only that, but you can truly head to cocoa heaven by sampling their unique ‘Milo’ hot chocolates! Check out their official website.
