The unique buzz of Henderson's original basement restaurant has won it legendary status both at home and abroad. Head Chef Barry Baker and his highly skilled team specialize in providing stunning classic and contemporary vegetarian cuisine served in a canteen-style setting - and at canteen-style prices.

The restaurant opens at 8am for a hearty, healthy Henderson's breakfast. It is extremely popular throughout the day with shoppers in the capital's historic New Town, who pop in to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea, or drinks and snacks at any time.

At lunchtime it offers a tempting selection of wholesome and delicious meals, with over a dozen freshly prepared salads always available. View a sample menu here.

In the evenings Henderson's features in the candlelit wine bar laid-back musical performances from the finest local artistes. The restaurant is also home to the Janet and Mac Gallery, an exciting new exhibition space devoted to showcasing the best in contemporary art.
