3 tiers of happiness in our Botanical Afternoon Tea

Inspired by the Gardens, and in particular our own Kitchen Garden here at the Botanics, we have created 3 tiers of savoury and sweet heaven, all topped off with unlimited tea and coffee – of course!  From mini bagels laden with delicious seasonal fillings to homemade scones and even edible plant pots we are bringing the outside in in the most inspiring way. View our menu here!

We are delighted to offer a completely vegan stand and are able to cater for most allergens.  Please let your server know if you have any specific requirements and we will do our best to cater for you.  Please note that we require 24hours notice to create an afternoon tea for vegans and coeliacs. Book here.

Served daily in the John Hope Gateway you can enjoy unspoilt views of the Gardens and on warmer days you can even enjoy your afternoon tea al fresco on our Outdoor Terrace. And with free entry to the Gardens there’s no reason not to completely immerse yourself in this oasis of calm right here in the centre of Edinburgh. In fact, make sure you stop by the lawns of Inverleith House to see the spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle and the old town.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Served Monday – Sunday from 2.30pm with last orders at 5pm. Booking recommended.
