Last updated Aug 16, 2023

Part of any trip is the airport experience and that nice wee treat to yourself as you sit down for a meal or snack, so what’s on offer at Edinburgh Airport?

We’ve got a range of eateries on offer with some fantastic vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options, so here’s what you can enjoy before you head off.

*Please be aware opening days and hours may be subject to sudden change.

All Bar One

All Bar One is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, providing delicious dishes throughout the day.

You can start your day with some pancakes (or the full Scottish for those hungrier types!), have some light bites or sharing plates mid-morning/early afternoon, or enjoy a globally inspired main for dinner.

And, of course, you might be after a nice refreshment as well so enjoy their expertly crafted cocktails, hand selected wines, range of beers, soft drinks and coffee too.
