New Edinburgh sandwich shop offers gigantic 'Brooklyn' focaccia sarnies

By Kris Gourlay

The hottest new sandwich shop in town has landed in Stockbridge - and boasts of taking the humble ‘piece’ to a whole new level.

Brooklyn-inspired Earl's Sandwich Co offers locals huge filled focaccias and challah buns alongside local beers, cold brew coffee and homemade ice tea.

Earl's Sandwich Co have already impressed Edinburgh locals with their impressive range, from boujee ingredients like sweet carrot kraut, peanut jalapeno emulsion and beer-braised shallot jam to must cop flavour combinations like pecorino and truffle remoulade with McCoys Cheese and Onion crisps.

The shop is located in the beautiful Stockbridge area, where it blends in with similar cafe's and restaurants. It is also, of course, not too far away from the picture-esque Dean Village for the perfect sandwich-scoffing setting.

For early risers with a hangover to fix, brunch options include the “The Mclovin’ It'', filled with a black pudding banger - made by Thom Parsons, head chef at The Pantry - fried egg, hash brown and Mexican jalapeño cheese topped with thousand island mayo and encased in a challah bun.

They are also pouring Leith-brewers Moonwake Beer as well as homemade iced tea and cold brew coffee courtesy of Minor Figures.

A new venture for owners Chris and Charlotte Thompson, Earls’ menu will also feature a range of tempting snacks and sides including fries topped with madras sauce or umami mayo.

Kieran McGuckian, Manager of Earls, said of the opening: “We set out to create a neighbourhood eatery that’s all about excellent food in a relaxed and welcoming environment. E

"Earls is a place where our customers can listen to great music, enjoy delicious drinks and get stuck into a class sandwich with their pals. We don’t suggest coming here on a first date - it’s going to get messy.”

Whatever your preference, Earl's promises to deliver a sandwich or snack that will leave your taste buds tingling.

Earl's is now open every day - except Tuesday - from 11.00am - 8.00pm, 11.00am - 5.00pm on Sundays, for both sit in and take away.
