Great customer service. Good food with the evening deal. We had bruschetta with tomatoes, followed by margherita pizza. The portion size was amazing! We stayed for tea and coffee. Thank you.

Varied menu for lunchtime. We over indulged and ordered too much. Minestrone & lentils soup which would have actually been enough. Followed by abruzzo pizza & mushroom ravioli. Pasta wasn’t the best. Would return.

We had a fantastic family meal here and were impressed with both the quality of the food and the service. We would definitely be keen to come back as the food served at Caffe Centro was a real highlight of our visit to Edinburgh!

Edinburgh, the weekend before Christmas. Everywhere is jammed, crowds thronging the streets and this place welcomes you in the exact same way as it does on a quiet Saturday in Spring. The staff could not have been more friendly, trying their very best to accommodate...More

We have just returned from Edinburgh and we're fortunate enough to find this little gem on the first day. We had coffee and croissant. The coffee was piping hot unlike the well known chains nearby. The croissant was warm and very fresh and came with...More

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
