Mimi’s Bakehouse, Edinburgh

While we were in Edinburgh in April my husband found Mimi’s on Tripadvisor. We decided it would be somewhere to go for brunch on our last day there as it wasn’t a long walk from the Premier Inn in Leith.

Upon entering you’re greeted by a display of party supplies which you can actually purchase from the Bakehouse. The bakehouse also has some rather interesting decor.


Our orders were taken quite promptly once we’d decided what we wanted.


The drink on the left is mine. Its a hot chocolate with some (from what I remember) orange chocolate shavings and Kahlua (?). It was delicious. That’s Keith’s latte on the right. They were lovely and warming for what was quite a cold April day.

CROQUE MIMI – Decadent layers of gruyere cheese and slices of honey roast ham sandwiched with soft white bread and topped with a light béchamel sauce and Mull of Kintyre Cheddar before being toasted till golden and crisp. Served with a light salad and hand cooked crisps.
TERRIFIC SAVOURY FRENCH TOAST – Tasty thick slices of white bread made with free-range eggs and cream served with Crombies pork and caramalised onion sausages (it’s meant to come with tomatoes but I asked them to leave it out)

Keith really enjoyed his Croque Mimi as it was simple but delicious. My french toast was very delicious and the maple syrup I added was brilliant. The sausages were the best sausages I’ve ever had. I would have loved to have more!

The service was warm and friendly and quite prompt. It seems to be a great place to sit and have a chat for a few hours and I wish they’d open one up in Nottingham. If we’re ever back in Edinburgh I’d definitely make another visit!
