We went to Papii on an afteroon. The place is quite small and we were lucky to be able to sit down by the window. The staff is really really friendly. There is a choice for vegetarians too! The food is excellent!

Great breakfast offer served all day. Many places for solo people as well as for couples. Staff is very friendly. Place isn't too big but due to that have to be careful with quality which is really good. Recommend for a breakfast either sit in or take away.

Very nice food although my clothes were a bit smelly (fried oil?) after being there for breakfast. I totally recommend going there to try it. Only been there once and will probably return if I find my self nearby.

Had the papii eggs royale and my other half had the waffles with cream, maple syrup and strawberries. Both were fantastic - coupled with the coffee it was a perfect start to the day.

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.

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.
