Hi, I'm Ildiko

Welcome to the Weekend Enthusiast! A collection of travel, lifestyle, restaurant reviews and home of the Edinburgh Enthusiast. 

What to do this weekend: 4-5 February


Visit the Bearded Baker

The name of the Bearded Baker probably rings a bell to you already: he has been supplying our favourite cafes all around town from Fieldwork to Baba Budan. On Tuesday this week finally he opened his very own shop at 46 Rodney Street, do pop in to say hi to him! Even better news: he serves Williams and Johnson coffee.


Leith Market Vegan Quarter

The first Vegan Quarter of 2017 takes place at Dock Place this Saturday between 10am and 4pm. There will be vegan stalls, vegan friendly stalls and 'other' stalls with vendors including Blondilox and the Bearded Barista amongst others.

Scotland vs Ireland

It's match day at Murrayfield and we are backing blue. Kick off is at 2.30pm, expect it to be pretty busy around Murrayfield and Haymarket.



Yay, we are halfway through winter and the Scottish Snowdrop Festival has just started. If you were out for a walk recently you might have already spotted the first signs of spring. Check the Scotland's Gardens website for opening times of private gardens with snowdrops during the next few weeks.

Have a nice weekend!
