Great coffee and a really lovely full Scottish breakfast. Nice staff, friendly and quick service. 10/10 recommend, somewhere you don't want to miss!

Great coffee, amazing carrot cake. The locals choice. Decor is informal, so may not be to everyone's liking, but the quality of tea, coffee and cake makes up for it. Great service too!

A hard town to find a decent cafe, especially along St Patrick street. However, looked until we found this place. Really good coffee and the breakfasts weren't bad either. Just a little more flavour with mine and it would have been five stars. Had a...More

We had brunch here a few times during our week in Edinburgh - the kili breakfast is superb and kept us going until supper. Chai was also lovely, and the music was just the right volume & type to create a lovely atmosphere.

Popped in here for a quick takeaway coffee; the prices were very reasonable, the coffee very good, and the staff nice and polite. It wasn't amazing, life-changing coffee that I'd rave about to everyone but it was certainly very enjoyable and the range of food...More

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
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
