March 1, 2015 Breakfast, Leith No Comments

The Tattie Creel has been a breakfast roll mainstay at the foot of Leith Walk for many a year. I popped in on a sunny and, dare I say it, optimistic Monday morning.

It seemed like a tattie scone might be in order, so I matched that with some black pudding for a hearty doubler roll. As items were freshly prepared, I had a moment to take in the surroundings.

Whilst the cornicing is really rather lovely, the place has been slightly blighted by the twin prongs of plywood and IKEA furniture. As long as I kept my sights towards the ceiling I was happy.

My item was soon with me packing in three little round tattie scones and two slices of black pudding for a very generously filled roll.

The roll itself was good and fresh and the filling pretty good. The scones were very nicely toasted for a good blend of crisp then soft. I was pleased with it.

So overall, the Tattie Creel continues to do good work. I’d love it if they stripped away the horrid plywood facing and restored it to faded grandeur, but the main thing is that they do solidly reliable breakfast rolls. I’ll no doubt be back in the future.
