Came here every morning during my five days stay in Edinburgh and had all types of coffee you can get here. Every single cup was fantastic. Do yourself a favour. Leave Starbucks to the tourists and give this place a try. You won't regret it.

Consistently brilliant espresso and friendly service in this tiny shop. When the weather is good you can sit outside with views of Edinburgh Castle.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
