Closed!! You’ve closed the best cafe in Edinburgh and replaced it with a generic, boring and pretty terrible looking deli. Gone is all the character and life of the Zulu Lounge and now in its place a garbage alternative. Not only that, it’s not even...More

Amazing food. The selection of sandwich fillings is great. Vanilla milkshake was absolutely amazing and the date crunch flapjack was really tasty.

Apparently the milkshakes are great, however £2 for throwing a tea bag into a mug of hot water is not worth the money in my opinion. Not in this surrounding. Not the best selection of cakes either. Wouldn't bother again if I want a nice...More

Thank you for your review, however the tea we sell is £1.50 and not £2 as you have stated. Our cake selection is based on quality not quantity.
