They have an excellent selection of flavours with vegan options too! The gelato is absolutely delicous and the portions are huge and good value for money. I have been on around 6 occasions and tried an array of flavours although the salted caramel is definitely...More

First the food - gelato, waffles and cake - they've got at least 20 kinds of gelato that they make themselves, with flavours that keep changing, and there are usually 4 or 5 vegan options - try the peanut butter, almond (marzipan?) or chocolate -...More

I've visited Affogato on a few occasions and every time it was delightful. The ice cream they serve is just perfect, such a selection of unique flavours, and the coffee is great. Excellent alternative to high street cafes.

I recommend this cafe as a great place with excellent food and drink and friendly staff. It's open late, too, which is ideal.

The ice cream is amazing here. They manage to keep it at the 'right about to melt' consistency and the flavor is on point without just being excessively sweet like other places. My favorite ice cream place to go to anywhere in the world.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
