  • The shortbread, truffles, and all other treats were so tasty! Pinnies & Poppy Seeds is a wonderful shop that I can't wait to visit again on my next trip to Edinburgh. 
  • We stumbled across Pinnies and Poppy Seeds on the way out for dinner. Remembering the smell and how cute the shop was, we returned the day we were leaving to buy some fresh shortbread for some family ...  more »
  • Pinnies & poppy seeds is in the historic old town of Edinburgh in a street on Royal Mile just a few steps from the Scottish storytelling Centre away. If you like cookies in all variations, which is right in here. We have purchased two different varieties and were enthusiastic about both taste directions. Who are loitering on the Royal Mile, should go the a few metres on the side street. Alone the enticing smell and the sight of the cookies is worth a detour.

  • I'm not a big shortbread fan but this place is making me a convert. It's all open plan so you can see and more importantly smell the fresh baking as soon as you walk in. The shortbread is extremely buttery and smooth and very easy to eat. Would also highly recommend the marshmallows which are unlike anything I've ever tried and just melt in the mouth.
  • We loved this shop! The shortbread flavor options are amazing. We were headed back to the US the next day so we asked the owner to pack 4 small boxes for us to bring back for gifts. The shortbread made it home in excellent condition (and still fresh) , the receipients loved them and enjoyed a small taste of Scotland! Definitely a must visit!
  • Pinnies is the place to buy delicious shortbread. I like to go there just for the smell of butter and sugar ! You can buy one or many shortbread at a time but be quick if you like one because when it's gone, it's gone. I love the chai version, it's very "Christmassy"
  • Disclaimer: I love shortbread cookies. With that off my chest I have to say that I have never tried fresher & tastier shortbread cookies Pinnies also offers a great variety of them to get a variation on a theme. Almost all flavored offered something unique to the pallet. Recommended!!
  • Jennifer's shop makes the most extraordinary shortbread cookies EVER!!! They truly melt in your mouth!! Thank goodness 2 of our daughters were getting Master's degrees at the University of Edinburgh or we would never had tasted this deliciousness!!! Another daughter just got back from a visit and brought us back FOUR boxes of cookies...woohoo!!! DO NOT MISS THIS YUMMY SHOP...your tummy will thank you!!!!!
