A small and super cute place for a delicious breakfast! There's a wide range of choices, from smoothies, coffee, teas, sweets, to great sandwiches. I loved the smoothies and the smoked salmon sandwich. Would reccomend it definitely!

we trekked across town, dragging our friends due to the good reviews. we ordered the recommended dish of eggs benedict, which lots of people were eating. we were told that the chef wouldn't do it because making the hollandaise was too much work. most of their savoury brunch involves this sauce, most people were eating it, half our friends had...

Coffee was so good, that i got another one to go :) Breakfast was amazing as well! Eggs Benedict and a very generous Salmon bagel are highly recommended! Go there - will be no regrets!

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 ever had. It was so good we... 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.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
