Ooooh Get Us! We've only gone and bagged a prestigious award for our coffee & cake experience at Restoration Yard!

We are delighted to announce that we have just won Café/Tearoom of the Year at the Midlothian & East Lothian Chamber of Commerce (MELCC) Food & Drink Awards 2020. Yay! We have award-winning coffee & cake.

MELCC Food & Drinks Awards Winner Cafe/Tearoom of the Year - Restoration Yard

Obviously, this being a year like no other, these now virtual awards were meant to take place in March and our award is for our beautiful Coffee Bar, which is currently closed while we keep everyone safe. However, we know how popular coffee and cake moments are to all our lovely Restoration Yard visitors, therefore as part of our re-opening plans in the summer we moved the experience into our stunning restaurant, The Kitchen

Every day you can indulge in your hot drink of choice with one of our delicious cakes. Oh and our much-loved Restoration Road tray bake (yes that's it in the picture at the top and it does taste as good as it looks) is back on the menu with a number of other sweet treats, including our scrumptious scones, to tempt you. The result? Well, an award-winning coffee & cake experience.
