For mum's birthday today we decided to try afternoon tea at the new Hotel Indigo (51-59 York Place). I've heard very little about it so far and it was a bit of a gamble going for afternoon tea to a hotel, what with all the amazing tea rooms Edinburgh has to offer, but we were very glad we did.
We entered the hotel and passed through the bar area to the Turquoise Thistle Restaurant and were greeted by a friendly girl who showed us to our table by the window. The restaurant is lovely, very smart with some interesting Edinburgh artwork adorning the walls. In the restaurant it was just us and one other couple having lunch.
Finally, I just had to share with you my new purchase today...I'm a very happy girl!
