Arrived about 3pm on a Sunday - lovely small cafe with home-made treats. I had a lovely egg sandwich and my wife had poached eggs with bacon - delicious! Coffee was excellent too! Very reasonable prices and very friendly service.

Friendly service, great atmosphere, excellent food. They had choices for the kids and the adults, meat eaters and vegetarians, and all of it was delicious. We left this place happy and fortified for the afternoon.

Our breakfasts (Eggs Florentine and Breakfast Panini) were delicious but the highlight was the White Chocolate and Raspberry Scone with jam and cream, so naughty but so tasty! We arrived here mid morning on a Saturday, we just managed to get a... More

This is a relatively new cafe in Edinburgh- opened last year. Not sure why it doesn't have its own page yet as it's very popular.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest 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 squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
