I absolutely love this cafe! The staff always say 'bonjour' which makes you feel just like you are in France and the pastires and cakes are top quality. I would also recommend the croque monsiour. Really friendly staff and a wonderful atmosphere.

A suprise find off the Grassmarket. Squeeze in to find a chair. Once seated you are spoilt for choice in this cozy Parisian outpost. Authentic baked goods. Super friendly staff. Fair coffee by Edinburgh standards

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

Hi; I cannot recall gluten free options on the menu, when I was there. I'm sorry I'm not of help.
