Fresh, homemade food is at the very heart of our café. Served in bright surroundings overlooking the Pentland hills, our ingredients are locally sourced and all of our eggs are free range.

Our freshly prepared dishes and home baking are available every day, and our menu also includes delicious gluten free and vegan options.


Available all day, every day. Start your day with a freshly made full Scottish breakfast, veggie breakfast, hot breakfast rolls, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or french toast.

Lunch Menu

Our talented chefs have developed a wonderful menu with daily changing specials. From the much loved Panola burger to delicious homemade quiches, deli salads, soups, Scottish haddock & chips and more.

Home Baking

For those with a sweet tooth, our daily homemade scones are not to be missed. Choose from cheese, fruit and other exciting flavours of the day. Our gateaux and tray bakes make afternoon teas a real treat, or try our fruit or ginger bread loaves.
(Our wonderful afternoon tea for two is available every day
from 2pm - 4pm)

Tea & Coffee

High quality tea and coffee is important to us. We only use the finest, carefully selected teas and coffees from Brodies of Edinburgh, and our staff are trained in latte art, ensuring quality artisan coffee. Founded in Edinburgh in 1867 by three enterprising tea merchants who shared a passion for exploration and an instinct for quality, Brodies continues to this day on the quest for the very best, from plantations and tea gardens across the globe. 

Childrens Menu

Children are always welcome, and our cafe includes a lovely children's area, full of books, toys and costumes. We have a great selection of meal & snack options for little ones too.

Dog Friendly

We have a dog friendly area in the cafe, so you can bring all the family. Water is provided and a lovely selection of tasty dog treats are available to purchase at the counter. 

Snuffle Dog beer and Frozzy's frozen yoghurt is also available, as well as muffins from the Barking Bakery and delicious biscuits from Kelso and Titch!

Please note that due to current overwhelming demand we are temporarily closed to new orders in order to allow us to catch up with the backlog. We will re-open to orders as soon as we can so please do not place any orders in the meantime and check back soon to keep updated.

Following the recent announcement we have decided to close the garden centre to the public until we are clear if we are allowed to open. 

The absolute priority is the safety and welfare of our staff and our customers and that really is our main concern and I’d like to thank every single one of you for your custom and support over the many years we’ve been in business.  I know we can all come through this and be stronger!

We are still doing home deliveries however and you are now able to browse our current stock on our new products page to see what we have then simply email us at to place your order.

Carolyn Spray and all the team at Pentland
