First, I absolutely love Starbucks., and have visited them on 3 continents. I always love the coffee, and visit daily in my home town. However, this place was a mess. There was a very long line, only 3 people working on a Saturday afternoon, you...More

I love trying local coffee roasters when travelling, but by the end of a trip I just want my Vente latte from Starbucks. All the coffees locally are so small in comparison. I was especially delighted with the relaxing, spacious area upstairs in this venue....More

Strange to be travelling through Europe and seeing different places and enjoying different experiences, it is strange to want to sit in the same coffee shop that I can find in any town, pay too much for a coffee and reason that I do it...More

This starbucks store is lousy. All tables are dirty and partly not cleared. The staff rather talk to each other than to create order. If I were the boss here I would dismiss the staff. Today is Monday 10.10.2017.

Can't even go up the stairs to find a seat without being shouted at incredibly loudly (which I kind of important if I want to drink in, otherwise I'd go elsewhere). So loud in fact that everyone jumped and was looking to see what's wrong....More

Excellent Starbucks. I'm a regular and we stopped here numerous times during our Edinburgh visit. It also was just around the corner from our Edinburgh Hilton. Nice seating and good views from upstairs.

It's a more quaint version of the US style Starbucks in a charming little storefront. The place was full and noisy but, since we were suffering from jet lag, it was a great place to get some coffee. Service was fast. It's located near the...More

We are from Seattle. We know Starbucks. They can be so much better. When we travel, it is supposed to be an easy choice for breakfast when we are in a hurry. This Starbucks is friendly and fast, but the coffee is average and the...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
