The Scottish tooth is famously sweet and every region has its local cakes, bread or piece of confectionery.
Many Scottish classics, such as drop-scones and oatcakes contain few ingredients and could easily be cooked at home on the “girdle”; they are often dense in texture and richly calorific: the perfect antidote to the famous Scottish weather!
The Scottish “high tea” is a late afternoon meal designed to replenish a hungry, hardworking population and is rounded off with piles of scones, drop scones and cakes.
Housed in shipping containers and situated on a cliff-edge near North Berwick, Drift has breath taking views over the Bass Rock. It is here that Joanna and Stuart McNicol and their hardworking team use local and Scottish ingredients to serve hearty scones, cakes and sausage rolls alongside brunches and lunches, seven days a week, to customers who come from miles around to soak in the views and have a taste.
In addition to the café there is a horsebox providing food to take away, which has become hugely popular with people walking and cycling along the 45-mile East Lothian coastal path.Drift
