I ate a BLT with avocado (had some zip). It was the best BLT I’ve ever eaten - ever, Scottish smoked bacon is the best in the world!

We stopped in for lunch after exploring the Edinburgh Castle. This was during the Fringe Festival, so the whole area was very crowded. In fact we went as other places we wanted to try were full up. Their loss was our gain. Although we had...More

Great meal before the tattoo. We had minute steaks, burgers, chicken and salads between us and everything was tasty and hot. We commented several times how hard the waitresses were working and it's a light, airy space. Amazing to get such a reasonably priced meal...More

We stopped off here for coffee and cake during the Fringe. A fab building and much quieter than many other with plenty of space. They had Gluten Free chocolate cake on offer, which is great for me and hubby had the normal chocolate cake (£3.95...More
