Great tea selection! Not too much to overwhelm you. Selected combination that is hard to find. Tearoom is well decorated. Staffs are friendly and efficient.

This place is quaint with very good service. It has a wide range of teas and home made cakes. There is a wider range menu (which we did not test).

So glad we pre-booked at the weekend for our visit to Edinburgh, the place was very busy. Lovely charming tea room with very helpful and friendly staff. Service was quick, would totally recommend it. My chicken pesto sandwich was beautiful.

helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
