Located in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town, Parliament Square,
Colonnades at the Signet Library is an elegant, and welcoming
venue, renowned for their Traditional Afternoon Teas.
The Colonnades has been restored exquisitely to its former grandeur. Tall fluted Corinthian columns line the salon surrounded by the gallery's ornate balustrades in neo-classical style. The finest bespoke silverware is set on the tables, some of which are original to the building.
Afternoon Tea at The Colonnades is an experience not to be missed. You can indulge in a selection of freshly made sandwiches, delectable savouries and decadent cakes created by their resident pastry chef and presented with their renowned panache.
Please note that until 1st January 2019 only the Festive Afternoon Tea will be available. Please click here for more information.
