I was wandering the streets of Old Town searching for a quick bite to eat when I happened upon Espresso Mondo. It's a very casual hole-in-the-wall deli with a table and maybe six seats at a side counter and at the window. I wanted a...More

This is a great place to have coffee. The place has a very nice decor and a great atmosphere. The music is not too loud so you can have a normal conversation. Haven't tried the food, though, but the coffee is very good.

I will not dwell on this, as I never think a terrible review is always useful, but I have to pass on a salutary warning about this place: when you ask for vegetarian chilli, you do not expect that it comes buried under a heap...More

Have had lunch and dinner here - it is informal the food is nice and the wine is pretty cheap by the glass (not a big selection but it is really a coffee house in a great location)

Stopped in here for brunch before we headed out for a day of sightseeing. Service isn't the best - we wondered around the place for a good bit before anyone greeted us, even though they weren't very busy. Coffee seems to be hit or miss....More

Disappointed really. They advertise good coffee. And the coffee IS pretty good, but my Latte was too light and airy. Good coffee needs a good barista... At least then pour your lattes on a scale like so many high street coffee shops. I didn't order...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
