International Restaurant Review { The Elephant House }

There is a little child in all of us that likes to come out and play sometimes. That child gets excited and giddy at things that might seem mundane to others. The little girl in me still gets excited about anything even remotely related to Harry Potter. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a wizard or witch and be able to do magic?!

When my friend told me about The Elephant House in Edinburgh, I was so excited. The Elephant House is the coffee shop where J.K. Rowling wrote some of the Harry Potter books! It was quite thrilling sitting there, looking around and wondering what she was thinking while writing these books, not knowing how famous this character she created would become.

Allowing our inner child to enjoy these little moments are so important because it’s what will keep us grounded, and will make us enjoy life a little more.

There isn’t much to say about The Elephant House – a cozy little café with a great assortment of coffee & tea. True to its name, there are elephant decorations everywhere. If you visit but choose not to stay, please take a tour of the bathroom. Yes, the bathroom. The walls and ceilings are FILLED with the funniest comments by HP fans (I included a few pictures below).

What are some of the things that make you giddy like a child? Do you think it’s important to be able to ‘act like a child’ sometimes?

  1. What a beautiful post. Yes, everyone should be a child sometimes, at least every day I think, haha! I want to go to Edinburgh anyway just to see Scotland, but will put this on the list whenever I can go. Love the pics of the bathroom and still working on being a good witch! Thank you!

    • It’s so nice to let that inner child out sometimes! Glad you liked the pictures – I thought it was fun that they left all the writing in the bathroom.

      Hope you get to visit Scotland – it’s STUNNING! I have quite a few blog posts from my trip!
