About Cafe St Honore
'Small dinner party'
David Mauritzen - 29/09/2015
Having eaten in many fine restaurants in many countries, it is delightful to know that St Honore can happily compete with some of the best. Not Michelin Star rating, but excellent food, delightful atmosphere and polite, knowledgable service.

Tremendous meal. Great value.
Stylish Scottish restaurant in the New Town
Tucked away on a cobbled lane in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, Cafe St Honore is a happy marriage between classic French decor and carefully sourced Scottish ingredients. Cafe St Honore may sound as if it is a French restaurant which has decamped to Edinburgh but, despite the elegant Gallic interior, the cooking is mainly although not exclusively modern Scottish. Child-friendly, the restaurant is located on North West Thistle Lane.
Fresh ingredients & daily changing menus
The restaurant prides itself on its sustainable kitchen and as Cafe St Honore uses seasonal produce, each day the talented chefs create a new menu to bring out the best in the ingredients delivered that morning. Dishes on the menu may include local game terrine with rowan jelly; braised free range chicken leg with bacon, lentils & chestnut mushrooms; North Sea hake, tomato & courgette stew with crushed heritage potatoes and isle of Mull langoustine or Perthshire venison haunch with Stornoway black pudding, celeriac and an Arran mustard jus.
Transport links & accessibility for New Town & city centre
Cafe St Honore can be found on North West Thistle Lane in the New Town area of Edinburgh, close to Queen Street Gardens. Waverley train station is around fifteen minutes away on foot and Edinburgh bus station on Elder Street is a ten minute walk from the restaurant. Several bus stops are also nearby.
