I continue to love Leo's are typically visit every weekend, their coffee is by far the best I drink in a week and I drink a lot! Current favourites are veggie croque mon scone and brownie of course.

I love the eggs benedict and regularly visit solo for breakfast. Very much worth it however the eggs are on the small side with little hollandaise sauce and a hefty price tag of £8. Please fix immediately because I can't eat my eggs benny anywhere...More

Customer service or lack of. It's like they are doing you a favour. Not the first time I've experienced this here, but will be the last. Other friendlier coffee shops are available less than 15m away.

We stopped in on a stroll while touring the area yesterday. Leo's is a sweet little spot, with limited outdoor seating and a quaint interior. The food selection looked tasty, but we only grabbed cappucinos and espressos to take away. And they were divine! We...More

We rented an Air BnB just around the corner from this Leo's. A real neighborhood place. Scones, porridge, baked croissants, and coffees were all delicious and fresh. Nice counter folks.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
