On Sunday, the last weekend day of the festival (which feet weirdly like the post fest quiet already) we finally made it to the Pavilion Cafe in the meadows. As the name suggests, it’s a cafe in an old sports pavilion. In pretty sure it was just closed up before he cafe arrived I don’t think it was used as changing rooms got the meadows cricketers or anything. Anyway, now it serves veggie food – wraps, quiches, frittatas and so on. They also do artisan roast coffee, (although tbh, where doesn’t in edinburgh these days. The artisan roast people are obviously good at their jobs!).
But anyway, the big selling point for us is that it’s ace for children. They have lots of toys and kids furniture and bikes and scooters and various runny aroundy toys, which is Milo’s favourite thing ever. And because one side is the meadows and one side is a fenced off garden you can let your children run around without worrying.
The inside of the pavilion is really cute, decorated with lots of hippy/Buddhist stuff. I didn’t take a picture because it’s tiny and both tables were taken and I didn’t want to bother people, but you know the kind of thing. The small size also means that the whole set up really only works in nice weather, so I’m not sure we’ll make it back again this year (and I suspect they shut down once it gets cold anyway), so this post maybe isn’t the most helpful for anyone who hadn’t heard of it! Hopefully the weather will stay good into September and if not there’s always next year!
