Charming tea rooms which bring new century hip to olde-worlde tea shops. Bright engaging young front of house staff, and clever and innovative management make this one of the nicest spots in Edinburgh for a bite of lunch. And the tea is lovely...

clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
