Not bad at all. Decent service by friendly staff. Excellent hot chocolate with cream. A busy place so might have to wait for service and if you want to sit in. Good to sit upstairs and people watch a bit. Usual savoury and sweet snacks....More

The staff really make this difference. There are always lines but they are fast and more importantly friendly. Most Starbucks employees are friendly but this place goes beyond. The upstairs seating area is clean and spacious. Nice way to enjoy your coffee and lookout over...More

Quick and friendly staff Lots of seating upstairs Toilets were immaculate - which is always a good sign in such a busy location. It has everything that you would expect of a Starbucks and it is right on the Royal Mile!!

Lively drinks and really good product. However why take the name of people if you're not going to use it?

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
