A suprise find off the Grassmarket. Squeeze in to find a chair. Once seated you are spoilt for choice in this cozy Parisian outpost. Authentic baked goods. Super friendly staff. Fair coffee by Edinburgh standards

Ducked out of the rain into La Barantine, having no idea what a special find we had stumbled upon. Such a delightful, tiny little coffee / pastiserie / sandwich cafe. Fragment, warm, welcoming and absolutely wonderful young and attentive and professional staff. The quiche, the...More

Stopped by for a little yummy midmorning. Superb crusty French bread that left crumbs in your lap with sweet butter--just what I wanted and hard to find outside of France. Excellent decaf coffee. The other offerings looked good as well

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

Hi; I cannot recall gluten free options on the menu, when I was there. I'm sorry I'm not of help.
