It really doesn’t matter whether it’s a rare heatwave (yeah, I got to experience one for the first time in years) or freezing with sleet and snow, for Edinburgh is truly a beautiful city. The weather has settled into how I usually remember it – overcast, sometimes drizzle and just nudging double figures in temperature. It doesn’t stop us. We are out every day, walking practically everywhere.

I could hardly wait to hit Peter’s Yard for a takeout flat white and cardamom bun. There is something about the cafe's setting on Middle Meadow Walk; the modern architecture contrasting with, but not outdoing, the old; the lightness of air inside; and of course the food, that makes it hard for me to pass by.
I don’t feel guilty that I devoured the spicy bun before I left the shop, just explaining why there’s no photo. As compensation, here's some snapshots of what we've eaten there on our visits so far.
