Love hanging out in this place on a regular occasion, great meet up place, and good for students. It can get a little hectic as it is so busy! You just have to be on time to get a table.

Every time I’ve been here I’ve been reminded why I haven’t hurried back. Met a friend here today (his suggestion) and it was so poor I’ve had to write a review. Ordered 2 coffees and a bacon roll - £8.10. Mine was an Americano with...More

A nice cafe that catered to all of our tastes. Comfortable feel and quick service. Recommend the chocolate tiffin and cheese scones!

Delicious espresso (they had different coffee grind settings for different coffees- how it should be) and top rate brunch. I had the eggs and bacon on courgette fritters. Their business levels was a testament to their standard. Young man who served us was very pleasant....More

Nipped in for a quick cuppa. Was ok but nothing special. Wouldn't go out of my way to come here again.

Wandered down for breakfast on our last morning in Edinburgh after reading the reviews. The coffee was good, but the breakfast was not amazing (especially considering the price). Don't get me wrong- it was made very well but presentation seemed to be lacking on the...More

Really nice coffee, just slipped down a treat. I had the ‘fritters’- courgette fritters on a bed of rocket topped with softly poached eggs, salty feta, bacon, avocado and a side of a tasty chutney. My husband had the granola-crunchy cereal with apples and banana...More

This is my go-to place when I am graving a Chai Tea Latte because they really do make the best in Edinburgh (Frederick's Coffee House on Frederick Street make a good one too). The service isn't that great though and you always feel like you're...More

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
