NEWS Free porridge at The Scottish Cafe for World Porridge Day

Edinburgh’s Scottish Cafe & Restaurant is celebrating World Porridge Day on 10th October by handing out free mini pots of the country’s national breakfast.

Between 9am and 10am, hungry commuters and visitors to the Capital will get the chance to kick start their day with a complimentary bite-size portion of this warming superfood classic.

Carina Contini, owner of The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant at the Scottish National Gallery, commented: “Scots are made of strong stuff. Porridge has fed our people, our kings and our armies for centuries.

“Breakfast should be a time savoured. There is something truly special about a decadent bowl of Scottish porridge first thing in the morning.

“We want to mark World Porridge Day by encouraging people to celebrate Scotland’s national breakfast dish on us, so from 9am to 10am on the 10th of October, complimentary mini pots of porridge will be up for grabs at the Scottish Cafe while stocks last.”

For people looking for a more sumptuous porridge option from the Scottish Cafe menu, classic porridge varieties also include seasonal berries and Contini Kitchen Garden berry compote, banana and butterscotch, as well as ‘Power Porridge’ made with golden linseeds, flax seeds, flaked almonds, dried cranberries and a dash of maple syrup. Prices for the luxurious porridge options vary.

Located within the Scottish National Gallery on The Mound, The Scottish Cafe & Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, high tea, and Sunday brunch.
