We went to the Stockbridge Market on Sunday (it was very small and very crowded!). We were interested in eating a little lunch for not to crazy about lining up for 30 minutes and eating something while standing. We wandered into Maxi's and it was lovely. They were a bit busy, so they asked us to order from the counter,... More

We had a very good lunch here after walking through Dean's Village and following the path along the river to Stockbridge. Then it was a nice walk back to the city center. Order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. Nice for lunch or just coffee. Great bread.

This place does a good breakfast! I had the full breakfast minus the black pudding and it was great. The quality of the sausages and bacon are good. The bacon was crispy as I like I like it and the scrambled eggs were very soft which I love but it's not everyones cup of tea. My husband had the smashed... More

This, our 2nd visit, was as good as the 1st. The place is quirky, full of character and has a real buzz to it...great atmosphere. The range & quality of the food is excellent and a step-up from the ordinary. The soup-in-a-mug is a great addition to a lunch meal, when two courses may be too much. Always found the... More

With so many excellent places to choose from in Stockbridge for breakfast we went for this cafe & were not disappointed! I had the butchers breakfast, which as the name suggests was not for the faint hearted with great bacon, sausages & black pudding. My partner had the veg breakfast which had wilted spinach to give it variety. Really good... More

We stopped in here for lunch on a cold winter's day. Six of us, spread either side along a long table. A number of us had the soup of the day - a hearty tomato soup with oatcakes on the side. I and my daughter plumped for a sour dough cheese toastie each, with fig chutney - delicious! My son... More

My girlfriend and I love this place, during a year in Scotland we have been at Maxi's every single week because we fell in love with the home-made scones, the best in entire Scotland. Also the coffee shop is very cozy and the staff super friendly. Since we left Edinburgh, there has not passed a day where we did not... More

Have been here for coffee and lunch several times and have yet to find fault. It seems to get very busy especially at weekends and rightly so as everything about Maxis is quality. Prices seem fair for the location and quality of what is on offer and the ambience is pleasant. On one of my three visits it was buzzing... More

Staying in Stockbridge & Dean Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
