Lately I have been feeling quite stressed out with uni exams fast approaching so it was lovely to see an email from Frankie on behalf of All Bar One inviting me to go brunching. With brunch being my favourite meal, how could I say no? After all, brunch is always a good idea.

I have never been to the All Bar One but I knew it was somewhere I had to try out. Located in George Street, All Bar One Edinburgh is situated in the heart of the city. I went along on Thursday for a table booking at 11am with my Mum and Nanny, however we turned up with a toddler too but they had no problem adjusting the table booking to accommodate

The restaurant and bar is a large open space with a couple of rooms just off the main area. When we went there was only another two tables with people sitting at them so it was very quiet and didn't feel like you were being overshadowed at all.

Despite being a breakfast menu, it is so diverse. From a full breakfast to pancakes, to eggs benedict to a protein power up, there is so much to choose from. The cliche “there’s something for everyone” is most certainly true in this case. 

One of the things I noticed is that All Bar One is that despite being situated in a high-end part of town and hotspot, they are extremely good value for money!

After scouring the menu to see what to have for brunch, both being vegetarians, I went for the Vegetarian Breakfast and my mum went for Huevos Rancheros (which is lightly scrambled free range eggs with fresh coriander served with avocado, black bean salsa, pineapple & habanero ketchup and grilled tortillas). My Nanny decided to go for the Full Breakfast and Nathan had some buttermilk pancakes with fresh berries on top.

I personally thought the food was delicious! Though I don't know what lead me to make the decision of going for the Vegetarian Breakfast, as I don't really like eggs or 'big' mushrooms and I refuse to eat beans full stop. However, I did really enjoyed my meal and ate most of it except half an egg and the beans (which I gave my mum the minute the dishes arrived).

My Nanny and Mum really enjoyed their brunch choices too and as for Nathan, he ate all the blueberries, then the strawberries and raspberries, then banana and finished with some sausage from my Nanny's plate. The pancakes themselves however, he wasn't so keen on so both my mum and I had one each so that the fluffy, yummy pancakes did not go to waste.

Afterwards Nathan tucked into the smarties that came with my mums coffee (a bit bizarre but hey, sweets) and the remaining milk from my Nanny's tea.

I'll definitely be bank to try out some more dishes from their other menus at All Bar One. There is no denying that they maintain a high standard whilst offering affordable food and drinks all day and evening, alongside a cocktail masterclass so you can learn how to craft some fine concoctions of your own! 

Have you been to All Bar One before? What are your thoughts on them?
