First, these. Circular radiators! Have you ever seen them? I haven’t! They were just part of the building at the National Museum of Scotland, but I loved them and thought they were super cool, architecturally speaking!
And then this.
Before leaving Edinburgh, we stopped for breakfast at Mimi’s Bakehouse, right down the street from our apartment. As soon as we walked in, I knew it was my kind of place. Super cute, robin’s egg-blue paint and sassy drawings on the wallpaper (which reminded me of my old Fashion Plates set), pink and black velvet furniture, black and white accents, just lovely.
And, oh. my. gosh. It was the best breakfast! Or at least the best breakfast in a really long time. It wasn’t even anything special, but the flavors were perfect. I had the best scrambled eggs I’ve ever had. The taste and texture was perfect. The bacon was a bacon/ham taste/texture, and the fruit scone was done perfectly. In addition, the vanilla latte was the best I’ve had in the U.K.!!
L and Mike both had the thick-sliced French toast served with pork and caramelized onion sausages and roasted cherry vine tomatoes and G had the “OH SO SWEET! MIMI’S FRENCH TOAST STACK served with Nutella and caramelized butterscotch bananas.
In addition to the fabulous food, we had the sweetest waitress, who hails from a village on the sea near Inverness. She was so excited to tell us about all the places that would be great to visit if we venture north to the Highlands!
Loved this painting of the shore front, with Mimi’s featured to the far right.
