Fantastic coffee!

Tasty pastry, small place, nice atmosphere, nice baristas. Went there just for coffee, wish we came for lunch. Probably best espresso in Edinburgh

We ate here today on our last morning in Edinburgh and glad we made it here. The waffles with bacon and strawberries were great, generous portions and very tasty but there were lots of other tempting things on the menu too. Being late Monday morning it was pretty quiet. I imagine it does get very busy at weekends as it's... More

I stopped for brunch on Sunday when in the city. Papiis is small, busy and informal with a young crowd in. I had the eggs florentine and coffee - nice enough. I can see that service could be slow so not the place if you are in Arusha. Seating a bit cramped but I sat in the window on a... More

After a very disappointing visit a few months ago, decided to give this place a break. Today I returned with my family. What can i say. The coffee was great as always. The eggs benedict were cooked to perfection this time, as were the waffles with bacon. I had noted there was a different chef in the kitchen last time.... More

Wow, where to start? Fantastic food, great music, and beautiful staff. What's not to love? Perfect place to lose yourself on a surprisingly cold and rainy June afternoon.

Nice latte and can see the passion the barista puts in every cup of coffee he makes. To add on, the white chocolate and raspberry scone is the best I've ever had! The waffle is not bad too.

Twentysomething couple visiting Edinburgh for a long weekend, in search of breakfast, stumbled upon Papii after being severely let down by our researched first option (Urban Angels) just a few doors down. I had the yogurt + granola, with Himself opting for the eggs florentine. Both were superb. Lovely fresh fruit and thick greek yogurt, crunchy granola and a rich... More

This is one of a handful of places in Edinburgh that does seriously good coffee, served here by a proper, talented barista. This is accompanied by great waffles with your choice of toppings, freshly made smoothies and milkshakes, and some impressive scones (considerably better than you average ones). The place is small, so get here early, be prepared for a... More

Visited Papii for breakfast a few times now and loved it every time. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food is fantastic, always freshly made to order which means you may need to wait a little while, but well worth the wait. Lots of choice on the menu with plenty of healthy options. I'd recommend their smoothies and... More

Tried loads of little cafes and coffee houses in Edinburgh but this one is my favourite. It is quite small and only seats around 14-16 inside so it can get busy. Great place for breakfast or lunch, I had the tomato and chilli soup and it was tremendous.

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.
