I found this lovely shop on Trip Advisor and found it on a side street off the Royal Mile. The shortbread cookies are the best I have ever had and the English Toffee was excellent. I made three trips to Pinnies and Poppyseeds and took a box home.

We saw this bakery on a t.v. show, and decided to check it out! Delicious shortbread being made on the premises while we were there!

heard about this place on TV in the US, had to try it, shortbread was great, wish they sold tins so we could have chosen a variety of shortbread to take back as souvenirs

Hi there!
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review - and thank you for visiting our shop after seeing us on TV! We're actually working on getting some sturdier packing, like tins, to ship and to sell in the shop just now so hopefully we'll get that all sorted soon. Thanks for the feedback!

Lovely, little shop that looks like somebody's home kitchen. The reason to come here is shortbread, and that is reason enough. The freshly baked shortbread is amazing and available in five flavours at a time.
The ladies at the shop are super friendly and don't pressure you to buy. The wonderful smell of butter and sweet heaven is more than enough to make you want buy all the flavours.
Give in to temptation, it's so worth it!!

I had the best Scottish shortbread from this bakery! It was the most delicious out of any I tasted during my trip to Scotland. Don't miss a chance to stop by!
