Lively, diverse, architecturally stunning and always surprising, the National Museum of Scotland is one of Edinburgh’s best-loved attractions.

It’s a must-see if you are in this grand, historic city. When you do visit, make sure to drop by our Museum Brasserie or Balcony Café.

Serving tea, coffee and pastries in the morning, the Museum Brasserie is the perfect place to start your trip to this cultural jewel.

There’s lots of lunch options from noon with a menu that features burgers, sandwiches, salads and daily specials. But as you are in Scotland, you may want to sample some local delicacies, such as warm Macsween haggis salad or our sharing platter, which showcases some of Scotland’s finest cheeses. 

For something lighter (and for great views of the Grand Gallery of the Museum), head to the Balcony Café for fresh coffee, tea, cold snacks and hot, homemade soup. Sandwiches and salads are freshly prepared, as are kids’ lunch boxes for those on the go.

It’s a marvellous spot to take in the stunning Victorian beauty of the famous grand gallery.
