Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town on the Royal Mile, Colonnades at the Signet Library is the perfect place for ‘Edinburgh’s finest afternoon tea’ and delicious cocktails and fizz. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation or ‘just because’, there aren’t enough reasons to visit us!

This exquisitely calm building is just a few paces away from the hustle and bustle of the High Street and Colonnades is set within the beautiful surroundings of the Lower Library which has been meticulously restored to its former glory. Tall fluted Corinthian columns line the salon surrounded by the gallery’s ornate balustrades in neo-classical style. There are not many other opportunities to spend time in the spectacular buildings that line the Capital’s Royal Mile but here at the Colonnades not only are you able to step foot into this 19th Century building, but you are also invited to enjoy some of the finest food and drink in Scotland too. 

The Signet Library is proud to work exclusively with the award-winning caterers Heritage Portfolio. They have been granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen for their catering services and they bring the passion, excitement, and most importantly wonderful food that this award commands to our guests here at Colonnades.
