Whether you’re after a cheese fondue or one of their black and blue burgers the menu has a good variety of quality food. The prices are also astounding. You can get a serious amount of food for your buck! During the Edinburgh Festival they even do all the food for under a fiver. Grab an Oreo Candy Shake and you’re on to a winner.
Candy bar has sported a number of decorative themes (our favourite of which was Après Ski) and they always give the place a nice atmosphere and gives you a lot to look at while you wait for your food, which could be some time. So let’s get this out there, the one and only drawback of Candy is the wait. It really is quite incomprehensible. Whether the place is full or empty you’ll be left to wonder at the decor as your stomach rumbles.
But when your food does arrive you will be blown away considering the price. I would go as far as to say this is the best value food in Edinburgh. There’s a reason the team loves Candy. It’s just a straight up great place. A combination of good food, chilled out ambiance and abundance of cheese all comes together in perfect harmony. We will continue to head along at every opportunity and tuck in to delicious cheese and bacon wedges despite a bit of a wait. See you there next Sunday.
