The folks at Peppers were a great hit at last November’s Yelp Winter Event, at the Ghillie Dhu. Their excellent brownies were one of the stars of that particular show. I think a number of attendees weren’t aware of the place, previously, so left with a clear avowal to go and visit, soon.


Given that MJ often works just along the road in Edinburgh Books, she has popped in on many occasions. I hadn’t previously, but decided to rectify that situation, today.

I found the place abuzz with takeout customers, mainly of the art student variety. Service was conducted with much vim and vigour, with the counter team working in harmony to whittle down the queue with considerable alacrity and charm.


I pondered my choice for a while, then settled upon the hummus, sun-dried tomato, feta and olive wrap, to go with my soup, which today proved to be carrot and rosemary.

I scooted along the road, and was soon sitting down to consider the soup. It looked vibrantly orange, and had a good aroma of rosemary. It proved to be very enjoyable, with the flavours very well balanced.


The wrap was also very good, with beautifully fresh hummus warmed with the salty feta and tangy tomatoes to form wonderful mouthfuls of Mediterranean joy.

So overall, I was delighted with Peppers. They run a slick operation, and serve dishes that are high on flavour. I’d gladly go back to sample more of their tasty items, and would suggest that you do, too. I’m confident you’ll be as impressed as I was, today.
