The Starbucks on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh was wonderful. Although typically Starbucks it adds the Scottish personality to the visit. Great staff and great Flat White!

I noticed a difference in some of the drinks here, like the chai tea latte was missing some spices. Other than that, it's typical Starbucks and there is always a line because of the location. There was plenty of seating upstairs, though, so that was...More

The place is too crowded as it is situated on a very busy street. The menu is regular, we had green tea. The service is very poor, the tables are not cleaned on time. The floor and carpets are dirty.

Our go-to for a quick breakfast-- delicious ham & cheese toasties! and the service was friendly and efficient. We also stopped in for teatime while the rain passed... N.B.: your phone app from another country will work for paying, but they can't process any "rewards."

Place is dirty and no customer care. Shut the toilet an hour and half before closing for 'cleaning' that never even took place. Grumpy unhelpful staff too.

The global caffeinating giant delivers a reliable product right here on the Royal Mile, just as it does around the world. Plenty of seats upstairs.

I love chai lattes...this one was pretty good. Wasnt too hot and you could actually drink it. Missing the cinamon on top tho. Partner ordered a gingerbread latte - bit average they must have changed the recipe since last year. Oh well warmed us up.

This Starbucks seemed to be the tour hub for all the tours in Edinburgh. It was not very busy which was great for grabbing a quick snack and coffee before starting a tour.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
