The aromas grab you at the door and don't let go until you load up. Whimsey noted on T-shirts and the cutest gift boxes. Best shortbread ever!

We happened upon this little shop and were delighted with the results. The fragrance of deliciousness greeted us at the door and reminded me of my grandmother's kitchen on baking day. There are several varieties of shortbread and they are perfection. We also bought homemade, salted caramels. Their flavor is akin to that of molasses. The young woman who waited on us, however, is not quite as sweet as her shortbread.

Hi Sharon!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review - we appreciate every single person who comes into the shop to share in our love of shortbread! I always love hearing when people say it reminds them of their grandmothers or spending time baking with family - that is, of course, how I got my start as well! I'm sorry you didn't feel like our help was quite as lovely, but I'll make sure to have a chat with the team to make sure we're all at our best for our wonderful customers. Thanks again for your feedback!

Jennifer

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!
