‘Edinburgh bottomless brunch,’ three words that bring joy to so many people who live in The Scottish Capital.  

We all know that brunch is the most important meal of the entire day, and when you throw in some booze it elevates it to an even more important part of your morning. Edinburgh knows what it’s doing when delivering first-class bottomless brunches.  

You’ve got the foodie scene and great alcohol to go with it. If you’re looking for a bottomless brunch for a special occasion like a birthday or you’ve got parents visiting, or you just want to spend some quality time with your friends, it’s a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours.  

Usually this means you’ll get some breakfast food options, all the egg dishes, smashed avocado on toast, croissants, pancakes and more, and then on top of that you’ll have access to unlimited prosecco, beer, gin, or other spirits. 

Here, we look at some of the best Edinburgh bottomless brunch deals that are around at the moment.

2. Gaucho

Famous for its steak, this Argentinian steakhouse offers luxury and some of the best meat dishes anywhere in the city.  

Their ‘Electro Brunch’ menu is a bottomless brunch offering with a Latin flavour.  

The Gaucho brunch obviously includes steak with eggs and chimichurri, but there’s more to it than that.

With some amazing sides and other breakfast dishes, as well as cocktails, beers, and juice (or you can upgrade to espresso martinis and porn star martinis).  

It’s a luxury setting for a sumptuous brunch feast! 

Prices vary but we’d say it’s worth the extra pennies for what’s included…

3. Hanover Tap

Two hours of craft beer and cider, bubbly Prosecco, a range of cocktails, and some fantastic breakfast dishes.

What’s not to like about the Hanover Tap 

For under £30 per person, you can choose a big Scottish breakfast with all the classics or go something a little different like one of the melt burgers, sweet waffles, pizza, or quesadillas. 

It’s a popular local craft pub, that particularly comes alive during the Edinburgh Fringe, and is a place where you can see some great stand-up comedy.

Alongside the Full Scottish, the Dutch influence is clear with Appel Taart a choice, burgers, vegetarian and vegan brunch options and more.

The Street Food brunch at Bar Soba is something a little bit different to the traditional bottomless boozy brunches you’d expect to see, but it is spectacular.

Japanese dumplings, teriyaki noodles, cheeseburger spring rolls, and katsu curry, are all dishes that make for an interesting brunch selection, alongside the signature Soba Colada cocktail, Prosecco, and a Zombie Punch for drinks choices.

Bottomless wings and other tasty sharing platters are on offer, as well as upgrades to the cocktail selection. 

The best part is, it’s just £25 per person so you don’t need to worry about splashing the cash.

A fashionable joint with a classy vibe and a good range of craft beers to choose from.

The boozy brunch isn’t as expensive as you’d expect from the type of place it is, with 2 drinks and a brunch dish for just £20.   

Some of the delicious plates on offer include a mixed berry compote waffle, a Scottish smoked salmon rosti, and a breakfast burger.
