The picture says it all, I was in heaven. Friendly service and nice atmosphere too. My friends enjoyed their food too but my memory of what they had is clouded over by the fluffiness of the pancakes.

The name definitely fits the restaurant vibe. Reminds me of a diner a little bit. Very cute and the staff is amazing. We had the daily offers and it was great. Might need to wait for a bit if it’s busy in the evening

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
