Good food, despite the confusion and portion size.

I went relatively early on a Saturday morning for breakfast. I was quickly welcomed and asked for my drink. My soya latte tasted really good. Relatively good deal of vegan/gluten free options available, but when I asked to confirm if a dish was vegan, the person who was taking my order suggested it was vegetarian, although the menu said it was vegan, so that made me dubious. Regardless, I had the quinoa porridge, which was quite an original dish and reminded me a lot of carrot cake. I would have only hoped the portion was slightly bigger, as it was filling but a bit tiny.
The red velvet cake was quite tasteful for gluten free/vegan, although a bit dry and heavy, and also a very small portion. Overall, relatively good experience.

Pros: Vegan/GF options, Loads of space

Cons: Portion size, Staff seemed a bit indifferent

Vegan breakfast

Loudons offers several choices for vegan breakfast and we were excited to try them. They did not disappoint!
We chose raspberry pancakes from the changing menu and they were divine. The portions were so big that our breakfast sustained us throughout the day.
Service was very friendly and the space is large, but still comfy.

Pros: Several vegan options, including breakfast, Good location, Friendly atmosphere

Friendly service and good food!

I really enjoyed my visit. I had vegan pancakes which were amazing and would definitely recommend. The building is open plan, so light and airy. It seems to be popular for families too. A good brunch choice for vegans and non vegans, with good service and tasty food.

Delicious Scottish brunch!

I wandered in here looking for an authentic Scottish breakfast - or, as authentic as you can get without real meat. The waiter convinced me that the Vegan Benny was the best vegetarian brunch item on the menu, and I would imagine he’s right! Completely delicious (and beautiful), it was like nothing I’ve eaten before, in a great way! Service was also excellent. If I had more time in Edinburgh, I’d come back here everyday.

Pros: Several good vegan options, Vegan and dairy-free cakes, Lovely laid-back cafe atmosphere

Cons: Very busy

Ok breakfast place

Has two "by default" vegan and a few veggie options. When ordering a vegan version of the full vegetarian breakfast, I got an enormous plate with very little on it but still got charged the full price. But also for my friends, portion sizes did not reflect the rather high prices.
Service was swift but rushed us to finish up and leave.

Pros: Veggie options are clearly marked, Does gluten free options

Cons: Pricey

Tasty Brunch

Totally worth it. I really felt in love with the coffee 😍 and the vegan chocolate lime cake. The pancakes were ok, maybe a little bit small, but very filling. The amthmospere was very nice and the restaurant had the perfekt size. My non vegan friends enjoyed their food aswell

quality food but limited veg options

They have many gluten free options and a few vegan options, unfortunately not a veggie restaurant. Great baked goods and offer a vegetarian breakfast and vegan black current pancakes. Small portions, quite expensive, but quality food for a variety of diets. The vegan sausages are really bad, be advised. They are similar to ikea veggieballs but very dry and less flavourful.

Pros: veg options, great tea, unique food

Cons: non veg

good option

I'm not quite sure why I haven't added Loudons before.
I was first made aware of it by a friend with gf issues and have been a few times. You will never struggle to find vegan cakes if required. They normally have a couple of vegan options and they make food from scratch.
I don't think you will be disappointed.

Pros: lots of vegan options, good size
