Delicious English breakfast with top notch sausage, bacon & black pudding! The waffles are "to die for' and the coffee is very nice too. We must come back for dinner next time!

Excellent. Loved the Bloody Mary - best I've had. Relaxed (in a good way) atmosphere, happy staff and great snack choices. We will certainly be back for more.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
