Eating good quality gluten free food, mainly in Edinburgh
The best gluten free afternoon tea
The Colonnades at the Signet Library serves a FULL gluten free afternoon tea – and I can tell you that it is really very good. The location is beautiful and the service good. If you are looking for something that is an experience, then this is the one to go for.
I recently revisited the Colonnades in the gorgeous Signet Library at the very kind invitation of a visiting American who had read about Edinburgh on the GFE site. So it was a great opportunity to see if the gluten free afternoon tea still stacks up as it did when the Colonnades opened a couple of years ago. At that time I was emphatic that it was the best in town. The historic and beautiful surroundings are still there, the bespoke teapots still sparkle on the mirrored table and the food still arrives with a flourish. The welcome is possibly a little more low key than it was before and I had to ask three times on arrival for a glass of water, but there is no doubt the Colonnades is still something special.
