We wanted to find some homemade shortbread in Edinburgh and this place absolutely delivered! Absolutely delicious shortbread a hundred times better than any of the packeted stuff around, in a gorgeous little shop with lovely friendly staff. We tried every flavour on offer and each was delicious. Would highly recommend this place!

We didn’t want to buy just any old Scottish shortbread so my daughter googled and found Pinnies & Poppy Seeds and omg their shortbread is The Best. We went in on the Saturday and got 12 (they do different flavours every day) so as they were closed on the Sunday we made sure we went back on Monday to get 12 more different flavours to take home. We were hoping for cinnamon flavour and luckily they had them.

If you want proper, local, handmade & totally delicious shortbread head for here you won’t be disappointed and the lady in the shop is so nice and friendly too x

I was looking for something to bring back home to share with coworkers and I thought shortbreads would make everyone happy. By chance, I passed the shop and was attracted by the "Artisan shortbread" writing on the window. We were warmly greeted by the smell of butter, and immediately decided this was the place where to buy the wonderful round breads! They are soft and melt in your mouth wonderfully. A treat for yourself or friends and family. Would recommend totally to try at least one! (though it's hard to stop after!)

Drawn to the Alice in Wonderland painted window we entered ...the aroma should be bottled and sold ... but the shortbread is by far and away the very best I have ever tasted ( and as the gt granddaughter of a Bearsden Baker I feel qualified to pass this judgement) .... Will be back before we return to London to stock up .

Just what you need on a chilly October afternoon with a cup of tea - shortbread from Pinnies and Poppy Seeds - the all butter shortbread is outstanding.
