My first visit here. Decent amount of tables and friendly staff. Menu options is quite small but I see that as a good thing. I had ‘benny’ which was a great portion size and loads of flavour. I had an americano, good sized cup and...More

My friend and I both ordered the Kili breakfast. A massive fry up served with a ton of sourdough toast, butter and marmalade, haggis, sausage, potato scone, tomato, mushrooms and bacon. Every piece of this dish was delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t normally...More

Love hanging out in this place on a regular occasion, great meet up place, and good for students. It can get a little hectic as it is so busy! You just have to be on time to get a table.

A nice cafe that catered to all of our tastes. Comfortable feel and quick service. Recommend the chocolate tiffin and cheese scones!

Delicious espresso (they had different coffee grind settings for different coffees- how it should be) and top rate brunch. I had the eggs and bacon on courgette fritters. Their business levels was a testament to their standard. Young man who served us was very pleasant....More

Wandered down for breakfast on our last morning in Edinburgh after reading the reviews. The coffee was good, but the breakfast was not amazing (especially considering the price). Don't get me wrong- it was made very well but presentation seemed to be lacking on the...More

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
