Founded in 1934, Valvona & Crolla is the oldest delicatessen and Italian wine merchant in Scotland. The kingpins of Edinburgh’s deli scene, this independent family business favours tradition with a contemporary twist. From a myriad of the most exquisite cheeses to home-baked breads, biscuits, salami, sausages, pasta, and barrels of wine, this foodie haven is a trusty favourite as far as delis go. Every coffee is brewed to perfection, and the selection of olive oils, champagne, and contemporary kitchenware adds that extra touch.
The flavours within Brougthton Delicatessen always ignite the taste buds and satisfy the palette. Serving the best locally sourced organic dishes, this delightful deli is home to a simple café and deli counter. From exceptional daily soup choices and deli baguettes to the daily made tart or tortilla option, salads, crêpes, salami, and coffee, each bite is undeniably the best taste of the day, every time. This deli offers sit-in or take-away options and the vibrant menu is forever evolving with the most epic eats.
Herbie Of Edinburgh has been around since 1993. Since then, this joy of a culinary closet has been providing the city with a convivial atmosphere and the most sought-after treats from top small artisan producers. One slither of their chicken liver pâté is like medicine for the soul. The great array of breads will always make your day, the Brie de Meaux has a way of leaving a lasting impression, and the wine selection is perfectly picked. This spot is a great place for those with a hankering for that classic deli-style sandwich.
