Stopped in for coffee and a sandwich last Saturday, great welcome from the staff, told where dog bowls were before we looked after ourselves. Sorted Dougall he dog, and settled down for a great black Forrest ham and cheese focaccia.

I'm a big fan of their unique interior, I always opt for a hot chocolate with marshmallows (and like that it comes with a small biscuit) and a tomato brie croissant. Can be quite busy, but thankfully they have recently renovated their basement into a...More

One staff at the counter is fine for not rush morning. Many coffee's here. Croissant with chess and ham is delicious. Coffee is good too. the decoration makes you feel like home. It's very fantastic to sit and drink hot coffee opposite the park.

Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
