This Starbucks was well situated, perhaps lacking atmosphere, coffee was good, clean premises. Just found waiting for the coffee in such a confined area a bit crowded.

Had a coffee in here today with my daughter. Not busy, but the service was painfully slow. We were asked for our names. Why? Not used to summon us (we had to harass them to produce the coffee). And no names on the mugs. But...More

Great staff and quick service. Love the extra seating area upstairs and the location is perfect. The coffee's were perfect as they mostly always are in Starbucks.

Just a wonderfully, typical Starbucks in Edinburgh. So if you want familiarity of Starbucks, here you go.

This is a nice average coffee bar of its type. The staff are professional, hard-working and friendly. The coffee and the baked goods are of good quality. The toilets are a bit of a nightmare to find, but I suppose there's a reason for that.

Poor customer service poor quality tea made in a dirty cup. If you offer tea then know how to make it and do it in clean cups. Good customer service with a smile costs nothing.

I really like Starbucks but this visit on a Saturday early afternoon was very disappointing. There were two staff on and the place was a bit busy but not frantic. Both staff were friendly and attentive but clearly the place was understaffed. They were trying...More

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
