It took a while for Edinburgh to get on the vegan food train, but now it’s on, there’s no stopping it! One of my favourite additions to Edinburgh’s vegan food market is Harmonium, owned by the same team behind Glasgow’s cult bars Mono and Stereo. There are plenty of vegan restaurants in Edinburgh now, but what I love about Harmonium is the variety they bring to the plant-based community. They do junk food vegan food very well, though their menu also carries lots of healthier choices too.
Located amongst the cobbled streets of Leith, the restaurant has a delightful mix of old-world pub charm and chic maritime vibes. As well as their list of world beers (all vegan, of course), they rotate local draught and cask beers with their 100% organic wine list.
My favourite thing about Harmonium? Their weekend brunch menu. It’s so good that even my non-plant-based friends suggest going along for it. You can expect to find all the usual brunch-time favourites here: waffles, pancakes stacks, scrambled egg(tofu) and grilled cheese sandwiches. You can tailor your brunch by adding on extras like ‘bacon’, hash browns and avocado (to name a few). The portions are generous and can be accompanied by bottomless coffee, meaning it’s the perfect place to start a Sunday.
