We loved the atmosphere of this little cafe -owl decor everywhere. I had an almond milk mocha which was delicious, and my mum had an equally delicious bowl of porridge. Would definitely return.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
