Great local cafe that helps people suffering with addiction by giving them work and opportunity. Food was good, they had gluten free options including bread, and prices were low. Well worth a visit.

Just off the Royal Mile but in a very quiet location. Good food at a good price, although what I chose was a little on the bland side, plus friendly service and all in a good cause.

Visited this little gem this morning for breakfast with my husband. Great food in a chilled out and very welcoming cafe. Love the concept behind Serenity Cafe and will definitely be back next time we're in Edinburgh.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
