Enjoyed the coronation chicken wrap. But the toilet room was not very clean, the skirting boards were very dusty and the floor was very grubby. The toilet seat around the hinges need a good clean too. It really could be a whole lot cleaner!!

I can confirm that we do serve delicious and much appreciated frothy hot chocolate for the princely sum of £1.50. Oh, and sometimes it could be Cadbury's. So don't pass by, pop in... and you're welcome to use our lovely toilet!

This place was recommended by a local, and we're glad we tried it. My large group all tried different items and everyone loved their choices. The coffee shop atmosphere and eclectic international food innovations made it a delightful place to refuel and dodge the rain....More

The food here was fresh, healthy, and delicious. I ordered the Zeus and loved it! The owner of the restaurant was very hospitable and made sure all of our needs were met. I hope to visit Edinburgh again soon and eat at Flip! again!

this place was delicious! They had multiple gluten free options available, and were very good with non cross-contamination. Quite delicious and fairly fast!

Went there today for a bite at lunch. The staff member (could have been the owner) was really nice to my kids and went the extra mile with hospitality. There's very much a "I'll treat you with respect to the level you respect me" feel...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
