Valvona & Crolla, Edinburgh, U.K., 9 September 2023

An excellent delicatessen, about 10 minutes walk from Princes Street. True, they did not have a buffet. On the other hand, the tea was loose leaf. The different options on the menu (and we tried four or five) were all delicious, and nicely presented. The menu was not very long, but still offered a wide choice, ranging from cooked breakfast (English cooked breakfast, mainly, of which are not a fan; but there were some other options as well) to croissants, porridge or yoghurt with fruit and granola. Everything freshly prepared of course. I would have said 6.5/10, but the loose leaf tea raises it to 7/10.
