We visited a couple of times while staying in Edinburgh as our first visit was so good. The coffee was brilliant and the breakfasts were amazing!! Missing the banana bread already

Leo's is a fantastic place to start your day. Wonderful coffee (and we are coffee snobs), and even better food! Try the granola and the scones -- both the croque mon scone and the fruit scone with jam. Love love love - will be back...More

We had lunch at this popular local lunch/tea place. We had a salad, soup, croque mc'scone and lemon and thyme chicken sandwich. The food was home made and delicious. The coffee was excellent. Unfortunately we were too full for the tempting looking cakes.

Great place to eat. Local produce cooked to perfection. Best breakfasts for miles. Love it. Relax in back rooms and read papers...perfect. Great service too.

I continue to love Leo's are typically visit every weekend, their coffee is by far the best I drink in a week and I drink a lot! Current favourites are veggie croque mon scone and brownie of course.

Customer service or lack of. It's like they are doing you a favour. Not the first time I've experienced this here, but will be the last. Other friendlier coffee shops are available less than 15m away.

Ordered coffee and coconut bread, coffee arrived, pleasant enough, 20 mins later I decided I could live without the coconut bread and paid. Querying the food, it turns out that the assistant had forgotten to write it down. "Do you want to take it away?"...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
