Winner The Herald Scottish Family Business Awards, Green Family Business of the Year 2018. Scotland’s original for top veggie dining. 50 years young in 2013 and still owned by the Henderson family, now in its 3rd generation. Look out for their cookbooks full of healthy eating tips. From breakfast onwards, counter service by day and table service in evenings.
Founded by Janet Henderson, Janet was an absolute trail blazer, creating innovative salads in the early 60’s in Edinburgh where locals had never experienced beansprouts or stuffed peppers! Generations have dated and dined there ever since! Advocates of healthy eating and local fresh produce, recipes have changed and dishes replaced but it hasn’t lost its soul, there are longstanding staff (and their offspring), and live music every evening. Some of the early classic dishes even make regular appearances by popular request!
With live music, local produce, often cooked with an international twist reflecting the cosmopolitan chefs over the years, and as much as possible is sourced organically, Henderson’s is a real treat. Now with Henderson’s Vegan upstairs too.
