Our Food

Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon Tea

We make a wide range of freshly baked goods every day at Archipelago.
We have pastries, scones (fruit, bran, cheese etc), our toast with our homemade low-sugar jams, banana and wholemeal spelt bread, breakfast granola bars etc every day for breakfast.

For lunch we always have a vegan soup. We also serve up a fantastic selection of salads, baked tarts, spanakopita, frittata, veggie sausage rolls, vegan strudels, Mediterranean stuffed breads, our own baguettes with Caroline’s chutney and in the summer time we make Pan Bagnat!

We have no proper set menu as it changes daily and depends largely on what is in season and on the baker’s whim so it’s best to come in and see what looks good!

Cakes and afternoon tea

Our bakers love making cake at Archipelago and we aim to offer some of the best selection of cakes in Edinburgh. We update and change every few months to try and keep in line with the seasons. We do however always keep the most popular cakes on the counter in order to keep our customers happy! The one thing we do though is keep the sugar content lower than your average bakery. We always use at least a third less as we find it’s not necessary and we find that customers either don’t notice or actually appreciate the fact that we do this!

We make our cakes fresh every day using organic flour, quality butter, free-range eggs and good sugar. Whilst the counter changes daily and you will always fine a wide range of a wide range of dairy free cakes, vegan cakes and sugar-free cakes, tray-bakes and healthy energy balls.


We supply many cafes and health food shops and restaurants in Edinburgh with our bread, savoury and sweet selection of goods.
