Good coffee, surprisingly large pleasant space. Opens 0730 unlike many of the independents so good for the early morning punter. Miles better than the chains.

Another great lunch at Kilimanjaro which is a favourite of ours. Always a few soups on offer but on Sunday we both had Avo toast, the poached eggs done to perfection. Keep up the good work !

We had a great breakfast: fresh ingredients, delightful sourdough bread, natural fruit juices in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Lovely for brunch too!

Friendly staff, excellent breakfast - tailored to our specific requirements without an issue. Well worth a visit if in this area of Edinburgh. The table next to us had travelled from the other side of Edinburgh for their breakfast - speaks volumes

Pretty nice cozy cafe for breakfast and brunch. Close to Royal Mile and George Square. Quite a selection of daily soups to choose. We tried the Shrooms and Granola which were nice. There is also daily selection of brownies and scones. Good alternative for brunch.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
