Bernard Street is in the heart of The Shore, Edinburgh’s former bustling port. I grew up here, and like many ‘Leithers’ will always hold it dear. The riverside area just outside our front door is one of Edinburgh’s best eating and drinking spots, cherished by locals and visitors alike, and is considered by many to host its top seafood reataurants.
There are many to choose from depending on your tastes, but here are a few tips which we consider worth knowing:
Bars and restaurants:
- The Shore
- Malmaison Restaurant
Clustered next to each other at the end of The Shore (2 right turns out of the front door), these three restaurants represent high quality seafood and local produce based meals, in an elegant dining atmosphere.
- The Ship on the Shore
- The King’s Wark
- The Leith Beer Company
Excellent bar meals served in these old favourites and all just a few steps from the front door. Watch out for the latter’s amazing evening specials. Also great places to sit outside by the river watching the world go by - when the Edinburgh weather permits of course!
Cafes - Breakfast and Lunch:
- Mimi’s Bakehouse
The first being across the road and to the left along Bernard Street and offering delicious, low-cost coffees, teas and lunches. Mimi’s is across the road and along The Shore and has a staggering array of delicious cakes, pastries, teas and snacks.
- Carrier’s Quarters.
A local haunt and typical Leither’s den (a few doors along turning right out the front door). Homegrown live bands play a mix of music on a sunday evening.
Across the bridge to the left and slightly off the river. Informal and quirky, with innovative cocktail presentation and a good gastro reputation.
Warm and friendly pub perched on the riverside, off the street in a quieter setting. Just over the bridge and across the square to the right.
Public Transport Links:
For getting out of Leith and heading to Edinburgh Old Town and centre, Bernard Street could not be better connected. The 22 bus runs every 5-10 minutes from a stop in front of Mimi’s Bakehouse (across the road and follow the Shore) and goes to Princes Street and beyond. Journey time to Edinburgh centre is about 20 minutes. There is a flat fare of £1.70 per journey or £4 for a day ticket
The number 35 bus takes you to The Royal Mile in about 15-20 minutes.
