After a weekend spent partying in Glasgow for a wedding, I knew exactly how I wanted to recover on my return to Edinburgh. I've been stalking the Haven cafe on Instagram for some time and drooling over their amazing looking cakes. So my sister and I took a blustery walk down to Newhaven to get some brunch and boy was it worth it!
The cafe has a vintage and quirky decor, packed full of interesting bits and bobs to look at like beveled mirrors, typewriters, and leather suitcases - so of course I felt right at home! It has a lovely relaxed vibe and we took a seat on some wing chairs by a fireplace. It took us a while to decide what to eat (which I always think is a good sign for a menu), and eventually we both opted for simple scrambled eggs on toast, my sister with added bacon and smoked salmon for me, saving ourselves for the main cakey event afterwards.
The breakfast was utterly delicious (would seriously love to know their secret how they make egg on toast taste so good!) and then came the main event - cake. I had a slice of white chocolate and raspberry cake and my sister had a poppyseed and raspberry loaf. Needless to say they totally lived up to their Instagram worthy hype - my cake light and creamy, and I may have snuck a bite of the poppyseed loaf too which was equally tasty with a suitably dense texture. We came away stuffed and happy to include ourselves as new Havenettes!
