The food was great, service was fast, friendly and attentive. But the best was the fantastic coffee. After traveling in the UK and scotland for a week or so and noting the general improvement in the last few years of coffee in Britain to vaguely drinkable, it was an unanticipated delight to go to a place where the coffee was...

The service at Papii's was so appalling I feel a responsibility to warn others. I visited Papii's in the New Town of Edinburgh on a Saturday morning because they advertised a full Scottish breakfast. Although the staff was very polite and friendly they could not handle serving ANYONE in a timely manner. My partner's coffee arrived about 10 minutes after... More

My fiance and I were looking for a cosy place for a spot of breakfast during a recent trip to Edinburgh and found Papii on tripadvisor. We absolutely loved it! Its just a little place with about 6 tables and it was full when we arrived but it didnt feel crowded or noisy. We got a window seat which was... More

Flat white and sandwich. Coffee was very well made, excellent barista. Toasty was a good compliment for the coffee (the coffee is the important thing). Perhaps let done a little bit by the roast, I think there are much better roasters now widely available in Edinburgh.

My wife and I were up early strolling through a wet and grey Edinburgh Saturday morning wanting to have a decent breakfast, and wandering along, we found this little gem with its distinctive bird logo. We did get a little confused by the fact that the front facade had a set of stairs going up, and another set of stairs... More

We went to Papii today for breakfast. Both ordered the eggs Benedict and 2 cappuccinos. The eggs were perfectly poached and well seasoned, bacon beautifully crispy and good portions. Coffee is strong and rich, we'll definitely be back

Papii is a very small cafe tucked away near the bottom of Hanover Street. The staff are friendly and welcoming though it took a wee while for our food to come when the cafe was relatively empty. The cafe can only fit probably a maximum of 15 people, and the tables are small and only just able to fit two... More

Stopped here for breakfast. We were actually heading for urban angels but they only seem to do eggs and mums not an egg fan. Breakfast panini great, made to order waffles excellent. Lovely coffee with heart art. Staff friendly and chilled out. Picked up a sandwich to take with us for lunch, good selection of fillings and choice of dressings.... More
