Do yourself a favor and have breakfast here!

This place is amazing. I ordered breakfast waffles with maple syrup and strawberries and I couldn't resist going back the day after. They were soooo good!

Came here in the morning and got a latte and eggs royale. Everything was amazing. The eggs were perfectly poached, the salmon fresh and the hollandaise was creamy. Maybe a tad too vinegary? But overall it was amazing. The coffee was artisan roast and perfect! Papii is famous for their waffles though, and that is what i will get next... More

Stopped in here for lunch with my sibling after hearing all the hype about this cafe from my friends. Safe to say I was not disappointed. The cafe itself is much smaller than I originally thought and could hold 20 people max. Upon entering the cafe we were lucky enough to grab seats as it was busy but two people... More

Really nice family friendly place with great coffee, waffles and eggs benedict. Glad we found it! If we lived in Edinburgh we'd certainly make this a regular place to visit for brunch.

Been here a few times now as it's a firm favourite with a friend who is gluten intolerant, and she has got me hooked! I've had something different every time and it has all been delicious. Chai lattes are always good, and the selection of sandwich fillings is great - only thing I'd say is that it wasn't very clearly... More

I came in for a quick breakfast and was not disappointed! The cappucino didn't need sugar at all, it was smoothe, rich, and strong. The eggs Benedict was quite citrusy, so if that's not your style, maybe try something else. I, in the other hand loved it! To cut the citrus of the hollandaise, the bacon was thick and salty....

We were looking for somewhere to go for a late breakfast and stumbled across this cafe. It's small but cosy and we ordered two teas, a croissant and a generous portion of butter waffles served bacon, strawberry and cream - yum! It's a very relaxed chilled cafe, small groups or people by themselves. The service was fast but pleasant the... More

Stumbled upon this having not long arrived on the sleeper train. Breakfast was required. They have a decent selection of breakfast fare, and served tea and a rather nice hot chocolate. Staff were friendly and efficient, although it was fairly quiet when we visited. Recommend.

We stopped off here before we went to the castle. It was open nice and early and we were the only two people in there that morning. We were served very quickly and there was a constant flow of people for takeaway coffees. I had a flat white and eggs royale. The hollandaise was slightly on the tart side however... More

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.
