Last weekend Sean and I had a mini moving-into-flat-getting-new-job-being-in-Edinburgh celebration and went for champagne afternoon tea at Mimi’s Bakehouse Edinburgh in Leith. This was actually my birthday present from Sean, as I just bloody love afternoon tea of all kinds, and Mimi’s did not disappoint.
Mimi’s Bakehouse Edinburgh
The sandwiches were tasty and there were plenty of them, the mini scones were freshly baked and paired with clotted cream and jam (any place that serves scones with whipped cream gets a severely frowny face from me.) and there was a nice selection of tea and coffee. The real stars of the show were the cakes and pastries though, which judging by Mimi’s instagram are what the bakery is known for!
On the day we went, there were Oreo and Mars Bar crispy cake things (terrible description, but they were amazing) along with mini pavlovas and mini Oreo cupcakes. We managed to scoff all but one each, but we got to take the other two away in a little doggy bag. Which would have been great, if Sean hadn’t immediately squished them. Sigh. All in all, definitely a recommendation from me – we’ve already put a visit for their ‘Beforenoon Tea’ on the list for next time!
