The Hotel Chocolat Cafe is a fantastic place to grab a drink in Edinburgh. All the drinks are amazingly good, and even if you're not the biggest fan of the strong bitter cocoa flavour, there are plenty of drinks that will suit your taste. The...More

Only a small cafe, but very friendly and excellent service. On entry offered a chocolate sample. Had a latte, very milky, tasted delicious. Other customers were also friendly. An enjoyable coffee break after a lot of walking around the city centre.

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
