This place has been renamed 'Cowan & Sons' in early july 2017. We had an amazing scottish breakfast. The cakes are delicious (carrot cake, banana cake). The atmosphere is so nice, we did not want to leave!

Lovely cafe in the Stockbridge area of Edinburgh. We visited for brunch. Good selection of foods and plenty of GF options on menu. Happy to add/alter items to suit. Great tasty food.
Had oat milk latte too. Also had a GF cake option.
Dog friendly, family friendly. Clean. Great place for a quick cuppa or a meal. Will definitely return.

We took our supper here after a long day trekking the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle. Our server was very patient with the littles in our party and the food was delicious.

Right, so from the outside this cafe doesn't look like much, but inside the cafe is cosy and quaint. Breakfast was so good we went back the next day. I am a huge fan of porridge, granola and yogurt kinds of breakfast, and my boyfriend loves his eggs and toast sort of thing - both were on the menu and both were of a pretty high standard. Very impressed, and would highly recommend.
Service wasn't up to much is my only criticism, but the food definitely made up for it.

Service was slow but we were warned of this when ordering and actually the food came much more quickly than expected. We had brunch here. The avocado smash is a modest portion but tasty all the same - think it doesn't need either the poached eggs or smoked salmon to really fill you up. The full breakfast is delicious.
