"The West Room" in Edinburgh is a cool West End bar that changes its face through the day. I like starting my day there with Eggs Benedict & a Bloody Mary.

Whether you want a stylish brunch with friends or an evening of cocktails and craft ales, this cool little West End bar changes its face throughout the day, fitting perfectly to your mood. The staff are attentive and friendly and they serve an excellent selection of food. Equally good though is their cocktail menu and The West Room is a lively place to come to start off a Friday or Saturday evening, attracting a smart West End crowd of all ages.

The reason that I like to come here though is for brunch. It is the perfect place to start a lazy Saturday or Sunday, either catching up with friends or the weekend papers. I recommend a plate of Eggs Benedict with a strong coffee and a Bloody Mary on the side -- the perfect way to start the day.
