Fodor's Review

Occupying what was once the tea market, this trendy café known for its breakfasts draws the style-conscious crowd and can justly claim to have launched the dining renaissance of the Merchant City. Wooden tables and chairs crafted by Scottish artist Tim Stead are so fluidly shaped it's hard to believe they're inanimate. The café opens early, serving croissants, eggs en cocotte (casserole-style), and strong espresso. The menu is varied and constantly changing, but don't miss the scorched mackerel, the roast rack of Dornoch lamb, or the smoked haddie and Stornaway black pudding. The bar on the second floor is more intimate, much less busy, and lets you order from the same menu—but that should remain a well-kept secret.
