Good coffee and food

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.

Found by chance as the original cafe we were going to was full. Great gem - lovely atmosphere, service and food. Would recommend.

Really really lovely place and really nice guys who run it. Accidentally mixed up our order but they were so nice about it and offered us extras on the house to compensate. Fantastic service, great atmosphere. We'll be back! :-)

Situated just off the beaten track, serving breakfasts, lunches and snacks that are a little different from the usual high street cafes. You cannot beat a well filled roll with fresh fillings, nothing plastic here. Try the white chocolate and raspberry (or was it strawberry) scone...gorgeous. Oh, the coffee is good also. Staff took that little bit extra care on... More

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!

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.
