Breakfast to die for

We wandered in one morning for breakfast on the way into the centre, and my goodness this place is great. We each had coffee and poached eggs (eggs Florentine, Benedict and Royale over our two visits) and they were fantastic. Both the coffees (Americanos) and the eggs were some of the best I've... read more

I have been there many times and I think it's about time to leave a review . Awesome place. Perfect coffees, inspired paninis and many other yummy baked goods. The prices are more than affordable especially if you realise that you are enjoying your latte in the heart of the scottish capital. Hence my review agrees with 99% other reviews... More

Weekend in Edinburgh and this was just around the corner from our hotel. We had read the reviews beforehand. Excellent lunch, home-made soup delicious. Breakfast highly recommend eggs benedict and the coffee is superb either as a take out or in. The guys who run this place are friendly and meticulous. Good value, check it out.

I love Papii. I've been a number of times now with various friends and family members, and each time has been a joy. The staff are friendly, the food is delicious, and the presentation of everything is wonderful. The cafe occupies quite a small space, so it can be difficult to get a seat during busy times, and you will... More

The food was great, service was fast, friendly and attentive. But the best was the fantastic coffee. After traveling in the UK and scotland for a week or so and noting the general improvement in the last few years of coffee in Britain to vaguely drinkable, it was an unanticipated delight to go to a place where the coffee was...

The service at Papii's was so appalling I feel a responsibility to warn others. I visited Papii's in the New Town of Edinburgh on a Saturday morning because they advertised a full Scottish breakfast. Although the staff was very polite and friendly they could not handle serving ANYONE in a timely manner. My partner's coffee arrived about 10 minutes after... More

My fiance and I were looking for a cosy place for a spot of breakfast during a recent trip to Edinburgh and found Papii on tripadvisor. We absolutely loved it! Its just a little place with about 6 tables and it was full when we arrived but it didnt feel crowded or noisy. We got a window seat which was... More
