We had the pretty awful veggie breakfast. Mother's Pride white, toast, mushrooms dripping in oil from the chip pan, and incinerated rubbery eggs. Pretty Grim. On the other hand the Mediterranean food looks like a much better option.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
