Forsyth's is one of those unique, distinctly Scottish "tea rooms" that you think don't exist any more. It has it all: crocheted doilies, brass plaques on the wall, steam coming from whistling kettles etc. Stephen Hawking wrote about the possibilities of wormholes in the space time continuum and travelling back in time. Well, I think there must be a wormhole just off the Royal Mile, because it really feels like going round for tea at your great aunt's. The service and food, from a lovely blue-rinsed lady is exactly as you'd expect from tea at your great aunt's though.
The whole place has a weird, magical feel to it. It was busy when I arrived, and I somehow got roped into helping the waitress with the orders because I was "a strapping young man".
Don't come here if: you want gourmet food and quick service. Or you're on business. Or if you want anything more complicated than a white coffee.
Do come here if: you want to experience a unique place with unique charm.
