“Best hot choc and gelato in Edinburgh.”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

At last! Proper thick, continental-style hot chocolate comes to Edinburgh!

The gelato here is exquisite - and has far overtaken Luca's as my favourite for a cool, sweet treat on a hot day in Edinburgh. Huge selection of interesting and delightful flavours, freshly made, including several Valrhona chocolate versions, and unique combinations such as "Caramelised baked banana and cinnamon". Just wow!

“Always a Friendly Welcome”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

A lovely place for a coffee, although the ice cream is good too. The cakes are now done in smaller sizes so I can now have one without feeling guilty :)

“Excellent ice cream”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Stumbled across this place on as Sat afternoon. Excellent friendly staff, great choice of unusual ice cream flavours and you are allowed to taste the ice cream before you buy. Highly recommended

“Good icecream”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

This is a very simple cafe with good icecream. Not the best icecream i've had, but good enough to say that is good and feels home made and artisanal. Plus points for the lovely dog that hangs around and plays with his blanket!
