We were a couple of minutes late for the breakfast menu but the friendly waitress checked with the waiter and they kindly obliged anyway. We had waffles - one savoury and one sweet and they were both fantastic! Big portions kept us going until dinner!

Had a lovely meal here. The ribeye steak was superb. The blue cheese sauce just added to it. Finished the meal off with a glorious rhubarb cocktail. The staff were pleasant and efficient. Doesn't break the bank either. Would love to return.

We had a nice dinner here in Edinburg. It was about a 10 minute walk from the train station. There servers were friendly.

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
