100% visit here and have the waffles. I had the ones with the Bacon & Strawberries and it was excellent. Decent Coffee too and the ladies serving were also very polite.

Waited 10 mins for a table and it was definitely worth it - the eggs benedict was brilliant as were the bacon/maple syrup waffles, and the staff were lovely. Portions were huge as well

A quirky little cafe with really friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Food was delish, the best salmon and cream cheese bagel I've had. Coffee was smooth. It doesn't look much from the outside and it is tiny but if you can get in, go!!

Even though it was a small place the atmosphere was realaxing. My cappucino was amazing and the staff was happy to make a slight change at my banana wafles and have with nutella instead. Will go back for sure 😁.

I had an eggs Benedict with bacon and my wife had waffles with bacon and honey. Both were delicious. Great atmosphere but not much seating indoors so get there early!

Visited Papii based on Tripadvisor reviews, glad we did. Lovely freshly prepared food. Bagel and salad tasty and eggs royale lovely. Washed food down with terrific smoothie and coffee, cakes were also sampled and most enjoyable. Will return when visiting Edinburgh.

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

Hello, I'm sorry but we don't take reservations as we're a small cafe. It's best to stop by on the day and we'll try to get you a table if possible. Thank you for your inquiry.

This is a relatively new cafe in Edinburgh- opened last year. Not sure why it doesn't have its own page yet as it's very popular. Breakfast Brunch, good coffee, lots of homemade food, scones. open 7 days.
