Stopped for a sweet treat to share when visiting the Royal Mile. The guy serving was very friendly and the home made ice cream with snickers in was delicious. We opted to share a donut which was perfect for an afternoon snack. Restaurant was clean...and tidy and Covid secure. The donut was dressed perfectly on the plate and so tasty.More

Only stopped as we passed because the shop looked so inviting. We had a gelato doughnut and my boyfriend had a milkshake. The doughnuts were absolutely amazing stuffed full of gelato and so well presented and the strawberry milkshake was to die for. Absolutely recommend.

Gelato is real ice-cream. High quality. Smoov create exceptional flavours and serve generous quantities at good prices. Lucky enough to stumble across it today.

The place itself was good, the doughnuts were delicious and enjoyable. The lady on the counter does need to calm down and stop trying to rush through everything. It's almost as if she is trying to get rid of you and it doesnt come across...well considering customer service is massive for most people. I have seen a couple of reviews saying the same thing below which shows I cant have been the only one who noticed.More

The ice cream is fine, not amazing as they advertise, the salted caramel was very artificial tasting and the dark chocolate wasn’t dark chocolate it was just normal chocolate and they only had about 2 other flavours but it was ok for the kids. However...what really wasn’t fine was the ego maniac that serves the ice cream who seems to have run wild with the small amount of authority she has been given and runs the place like her own little army camp.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
