One of my favourite places to grab lunch around the university! Although you normally have to wait a while (especially during lunch time) it's definitely worth it. Such good value for money and there's a wide range of crepes, both sweet and savoury. You know...More

Delicious gluten free pancakes. I find myself stopping to buy one whenever I'm passing. This is an absolute godsend for coeliacs who struggle to find safe gluten free food on the move. They also have a soya mix for those who are lactofree. Definitely worth...More

Yummy yummy gluten-free crepes with absolutely delicious fillings. The tastiest street food you can find in Edinburgh and actually genuine street food! Worth the queue and the wait for piping hot and completely fresh food.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
