As much as I enjoyed using the mobile app and ordering ahead, always ordering the same coffee - Americano with steamed skimmed milk and a dash of cream - I've stopped coming. Not only did I quickly realise that Cafe Nero is just down the road and significantly cheaper but I also had a couple of pretty bad experiences where... More

You know what you get when you arrive at any Starbucks coffee in the world. This one is perfectly placed in the corner of Lothian road and Bread street. Very kind service and smiling baristas=)

This is as you'd expect for a Starbucks cafe with the usual selection of drinks and food. It was busy so we only just managed to get a seat. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
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 citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
