Your Top Ten Edinburgh Greasy Spoons – #RSHGuides

Posted on

Each week, 10 lucky train travel fans win £10’s worth of loyalty points by tweeting their tips about a set destination to #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you to tweet us with your favourite Edinburgh greasy spoon.

Read on to find out where to get a fry-up and a cuppa in the Scottish capital. And don’t forget to share your ideas with us using Twitter – you could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays or car hire.

@maria_dickinson took the first of this week’s prize points with her Twitter tip to try the Roseleaf café bar in Leith’s Sandport Place. If you’re looking for a little pick-me-up after a night on the tiles, she recommends tucking into the Scottish Tattie Stack – potato scone, black pudding, bacon and fried egg.

@old_peculiar steamed into this week’s top 10 with a Twitter vote for Word of Mouth Café’ on Albert Street. This contemporary café is open for breakfast and lunch, and also offers a takeaway service – perfect for rail travellers on the move.

@dickiebee made it into this week’s picks too with a top tweet recommending Oink on Edinburgh’s Victoria Street. This one’s a must for meat-lovers – as it specialises in selling mouth-watering Scottish hog roast sandwiches, complete with stuffing and apple sauce. And you can order in piggy-themed portions too – with a “grunter” the biggest on offer.

@MJRestaino took home those loyalty points too with a great Twitter tip suggesting visitors to Edinburgh try Peter’s Yard on Quartermile. It may be more stylish coffee house than greasy spoon, but its tasty food and great coffee make a visit a must when you’re in the Scottish capital.

@AdamBryant6 railroaded his way into our top ten this week with a Twitter recommendation for rail travellers about to embark on a long journey south to grab a coffee from the Aroma Coffee Bar, South Bridge. A greasy spoon with a Mediterranean twist, Aroma is just 5 minutes’ walk from Edinburgh Waverley Station.

@fraugretel chugged into this week’s top 10 with a terrific tweet recommending another top spot for rail travellers. Café Station is right opposite Edinburgh Haymarket Station and has a reputation for serving great food, including some excellent vegetarian options.

@TrainFetish also won those prize points with a savvy Twitter suggestion to head for Vittoria in Leith for an Italian-style fry-up. A restaurant, rather than a traditional greasy spoon, Vittoria is also open for lunch and dinner, so if you’re a little late for breakfast, it’s a great place to go.

@ned__walker won those loyalty points too with a Twitter recommendation for Snax Cafe on Buccleuch Street. This popular greasy spoon serves a wide range of options, including fabulous fry-ups, and the food’s great value for money too.

@jaffawine made it into our winners’ list too with a top Twitter tip to try the University Café on Byres Road, in Edinburgh’s West End. This family-owned greasy spoon’s been in business for nearly a century, and it’s known for its friendly atmosphere and cheap food.

@MelanieAnn90 pulled in the last of this week’s points with another Twitter vote for Snax Cafe. This greasy spoon’s clearly a big hit with hungry train fans, so make sure you try it when you’re next in Edinburgh.

Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks to everyone who tweeted us with Edinburgh greasy spoon recommendations! And if you didn’t win this week, don’t worry – you could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays and car hire in next week’s #RSHGuides competition.

Don’t forget to tweet your tips to #RSH Guides, so you can be in with the chance of winning some loyalty points.
