Overview

Round off your trip to the Scottish National Portrait Gallery with a visit to Café Portrait, where you can take a break from sightseeing and enjoy a delicious lunch or coffee and cake in impressive surroundings. The magnificent building that is the Scottish National Portrait Gallery on Queen Street is a marvel in itself, let alone its collection of world-class paintings and photography.

 

IMPRESSIVE SURROUNDINGS

 

Ground floor counter-service Café Portrait combines sleek contemporary styling with a high church-like ceiling and wonderfully gothic windows. Sit surrounded by light and art or choose a table in the Snug – a smaller area a little more tucked away.

 

COOKED FROM SCRATCH’

 

Café Portrait is famous for serving ‘cooked from scratch’ soups, sandwiches and home-baking, with lots of emphasis on freshness, exciting blends of flavours and taste. It’s their salads that often impress the most, including the food critics from The List magazine who ‘hit-listed’ Café Portrait in the latest 2015 edition and said this: “mouth-watering alluring array of salads and sandwiches made with local and seasonal ingredients ”

 

SEASONAL & ORGANIC INGREDIENTS

 

Café Portrait’s team are self-confessed foodies and use their passion for food to source the very best of local, seasonal & organic ingredients. There is always a strong emphasis on vegetarian food and also gluten and dairy-free dishes and bakes so everyone can have a treat.

 

ROVING BARISTA

 

When the counter gets busy,  Roving Barista serenely glides around the tables, ready to be flagged down to order an expertly-made latte and a slice of lemon polenta cake or whatever you fancy to end a lovely lunch and a unique cultural experience. Take a look at the video below

 

AFTERNOON TEA 

 

Talking of treats, you can now book a table in advance at Café Portrait for proper Afternoon Tea or buy a gift voucher. Afternoon Tea is served daily from 2.30pm – 3.30pm.
