Omschrijving

Inside the iconic Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Café Modern Two is a stylish eatery that boasts period features, mirrored ceilings, and even sculptures from the gallery itself. Wholesome lunches and traditional afternoon teas are paired with a carefully crafted wine list.

The Café Modern Two menu focuses on wholesome, flavourful European recipes for its lunch menus. Fresh focaccia sandwiches are generously filled, while mains include lightly chargrilled salmon with fresh greens. Warming soups are popular choices, and antipasti platters of cured meats and delicate cheeses are perfect for groups to share.

Afternoon teas at Café Modern Two in Edinburgh are wonderfully traditional, and include warm scones with jam and clotted cream, loose leaf teas, fingers sandwiches, and sweet treats like mini redcurrant and almond cakes.

A tranquil, stylish spot to refuel whilst browsing the galleries, Café Modern Two is moments from the Water of Leith, and only 15 minutes' walk from Haymarket Train Station.

    It was easy to book a table. The staff were welcoming and very pleasant. Our table was OK. The food was quite nice - not outstanding. Service was desperately (unacceptably) slow - in the end lunch took two hours which was twice what we had allowed for.

    Waited quite a bit longer than the 15 minutes that we were told for our food to arrive. The goats cheese and pesto pizza was extremely salty. Would not recommend this! The haggis lasagne was a very small portion and overpriced. This is my first visit to Cafe Modern Two since its refurbish and I am not impressed by the new menu. Disappointing as I used to be a regular visitor to this Cafe.

    Small portions. Salad accompaniment basic. Not sure if pizzas are a good inclusion -overpriced.

    Five of us visited for lunch (pre-booked) on Friday 27 December. I've previously had very good experiences of this cafe in terms of food, service and ambience. However, on this occasion we were severely disappointed. It was clear from the start that there was a serious problem of under-staffing. This was explained to us by one of the two serving staff on duty; she apologised and said that our food would take up to 20 minutes to arrive. We accepted this but, in the event, we had to wait for nearly 45 minutes for our food. I have to make it clear that the waiting staff were unfailingly courteous and apologetic and, when we politely expressed our concerns, offered us a 20% deduction on the bill which we accepted. But we had to rush our meal in order to finish our visit to the gallery exhibition itself and then leave in time to catch our train back to Glasgow, where we had a family gathering to attend. In addition, we all felt that the food was not quite up to its usual standard - rather tired salad leaves with no dressing, for example. It's quite likely that both staffing and food were seasonal issues but perhaps under the circumstances a less ambitious temporary menu should have been substituted. Despite this experience, it's likely that we will visit again at some point.

    Table wasn’t ready although reservation had been made. Food good apart from venison ragu, which had two small pieces of venison in it.

    Really good food, nice space with very nice atmosphere, helpful, friendly staff who were non-intrusive. Very good experience indeed.

    Disappointing. Sandwiches had obviously been left out uncovered - top of the bread was dry. (Fillings were good though).

    My new husband and I were given a voucher for afternoon tea for two at cafe modern two which to be honest filled me with dread, as I have so many allergies/intolerances I figured it would be impossible to eat afternoon tea there. This couldn’t have been further from the truth and the staff were excellent. They were superb communicators and we came to an agreement a couple of days before the booking on what I would eat and for ease I brought a couple of things with me. I felt so grateful for this superb service so we brought my niece and her girlfriend along as a treat and we all had a brilliant time. The food was delicious, the portions were generous and it was great value for money as a treat for my nieces. But above all that the staff attitude and attentiveness was priceless. Please accept my thanks for giving me something that money can’t buy - the opportunity to enjoy an afternoon tea with my loved ones without them constantly feeling bad that they are tucking into treats whilst I am sitting there with just a cuppa.

    Enjoyed my haloumi salad and tray bake. However we were too crushed. Although I had booked a table for 5, we were given a square table for 4
