From fresh fish to delicious cakes to hand-made sweets, our Scottish Borders are crammed with artisan foods that showcase the area’s natural larder.
But wouldn’t it be nice if you could enjoy the best that the Borders has to offer without having to stray any farther than central Edinburgh?
With today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two, you can do exactly that. Taking place at the popular Born in the Borders cafe at Waverley Mall, you can even include Prosecco for a tipsier experience.
Charming central Edinburgh cafe
Born in the Borders at Waverley Mall celebrate the very best produce from this very foodie friendly region.
This includes fresh breads, flavoursome fish and delicious cakes from innovative artisan producers.
Today’s Big Deal is on afternoon tea for two, available seven days from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. Option two adds on a glass of Prosecco each.
As this offer is available until 30th December, you will have plenty of time to plan it around a Festival show, birthday celebration or even a Christmas shopping trip (hey, it never hurts to think ahead).
A very special selection
Afternoon tea at Born in the Borders is the epitome of decadence.
Created from scratch in the cafe’s own kitchen, it is made up of a daily changing selection. This could include sausage rolls, smoked salmon sandwiches, fruit scones, mouth-watering cakes and sweet treats.
As even the ingredients used in the tea come from local Borders producers, you can enjoy a completely regional experience.
Born in the Borders has been picking up praise on TripAdvisor, with an overall score of 4.5/5. Here is one review:
‘Popped in for coffee, ended up staying for lunch. I’ve had really good coffee here a couple of times and I stayed for lunch recently and loved it. I work locally and I now regularly meet clients here as it’s central, an interesting menu and has a local feel even though it’s in the heart of Edinburgh’s Princes Street.’
Best of the Borders
If you’d like to enjoy the best that this beautiful region has to offer, what better way than with a sweet and savoury afternoon tea selection for two?
Available until late December, you could pair your treat with a trip to the Festival, shopping spree or special occasion.
And if you add on a glass of fizz each, you can toast the beautiful Borders in style.
