I was inviting along for the Bloggers Launch breakfast. Read my food review on my Zomato! So lovely meeting and seeing other Bloggers not just within the Edinburgh Blogging community but the overall Scottish Blogging community. As always I was late!

“The service was on top form, the waiter ensured our glasses or cups were warm and topped up. Highly recommended!”
