We had a lovely breakfast at Sugarhouse Sandwiches. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The cafe is cosy and has lots of lovely little touches. We had the Scottish and vegetarian breakfasts and both were delicious! The homemade lemon cake was also amazing!

Came across this place after a long walk up Arthurs Seat. A tiny place easy to miss but don't!!!! If you enjoy home cooked fresh food in "Grannys Kitchen" you will like this place - if you prefer chips and burgers give it a miss....More

Beside the price, everything contributes to a forgettable experience at this small cafe: the quality of food and drinks, the noise of the fridge, the cracked cup and pot, the menu, the service, the display. Only positive thing is the 10% discount for students.More

I was staying at the local Premier Inn and didn’t fancy the mass produced buffet breakfast. This lovely place had rave reviews. It was worth waiting until 1000 for my breakfast. A pot of proper leaf tea and a 3 egg omelette with ham/ cheese...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
