    Located in the Scottish Parliament, you can have something to eat whilst spotting politicians!

    The café is located in the main lobby and is for the use of any visitors to the Scottish Parliament. A good place to visit, before or after, your tour of the award-winning building. The café has an informal style and offers a range of food from morning pastries, home baking, handmade artisan hand held snacks and soup. The house specialities are the parliament shortbread and homemade scones. All of these are made daily on the premises.
