Genuinely surprised this place doesn't have a higher rating, and in particular that people have commented on poor customer service. This place does excellent food, but more than that - it has the friendliest staff of any cafe I have ever been too!

Stopped by for a coffee and bacon roll. Good price, friendly staff, clean and tidy. Coffee was poor, asked for a double espresso and got cappuccino cup full of watery over extracted coffee. Some barista training would really lift this cafe.

Apart from the Royal Infirmary a host of attractions for tourists are nearby - the Cathedral, Necropolis, Provands Lordship, etc. The restaurant is very well designed with lots of nooks and crannies although the second counter and stored boxes in one area was a puzzle....More
