Tantrum Dougnuts

I had high hopes for this place. My bar is set high with St. John and Bread Ahead being my gold standard.
The main problem with these doughnuts, and some might say it's not a problem, is that they are Cakey- not doughy and chewy. So, for me this will be a one off.
Plus points are cool font and design, friendly staff, decent coffee, and a good stab at some more unusual flavours.
I hope they do well, it's good to see people passionate about their product.

At long last! Non-dirty tasty burgers. My quality control visit was satisfied, which is a bad thing for my waist line.
Burger cooked medium rare as request. Patty tasty with chargrilled flavour. Chocolate malted milkshake thick enough to stand a straw up in. Food came fast and the staff were (super) attentive.

Great service, if on the formal side. Lovely food. Good way to spend 3 hrs.

Field, Edinburgh

Lovely food, small place only 25 covers and the tables are slightly too close for you to feel your conversation remains private.
My coffee was very good. The gazpacho and gaucamole less refined than I expected (I was thinking clear tomato consommé and deconstructed gazpacho) but still tasty. My duck main was very tasty and large in size. Natalie seemed happy with her dishes which were from the festival lunch menu. My chocolate and passion fruit delice was intense and good but too rich for us both to finish. The treacle tart was good and chewy and served as an individual tart.
I ate very well for £31 including 10% tip. You'd be lucky to have this as your neighbourhood local.
