A really lovely, quirky shop. You will not meet a nicer, kinder owner in the whole of Edinburgh. A perfect place to chill and read eat lovely sandwiches or catch up with friends

Had breakfast there and the staff was very welcoming. The French toast was excellent. It is a great place to go if you are visiting Edinburgh!

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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
