Nipped in for a quick cuppa. Was ok but nothing special. Wouldn't go out of my way to come here again.

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

Set in student city, certainly felt older than the rest of the clientele. Coffee was strong and well made and the carrot cake was delicious - good mixture of ingredients and flavours. Coffee was more than I would normally pay, but it was a good...More

Really nice coffee, just slipped down a treat. I had the ‘fritters’- courgette fritters on a bed of rocket topped with softly poached eggs, salty feta, bacon, avocado and a side of a tasty chutney. My husband had the granola-crunchy cereal with apples and banana...More

This is my go-to place when I am graving a Chai Tea Latte because they really do make the best in Edinburgh (Frederick's Coffee House on Frederick Street make a good one too). The service isn't that great though and you always feel like you're...More

Great coffee, amazing carrot cake. The locals choice. Decor is informal, so may not be to everyone's liking, but the quality of tea, coffee and cake makes up for it. Great service too!

A hard town to find a decent cafe, especially along St Patrick street. However, looked until we found this place. Really good coffee and the breakfasts weren't bad either. Just a little more flavour with mine and it would have been five stars. Had a...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
