We popped in here late on a Monday evening seeking some tea and dessert, so we weren't disappointed with homemade cheesecake, and caramel slices. Staff were very friendly and there was a nice atmosphere in the café.

We wanted a cup of coffee and this was clearly not a big enough order to warrant any level of politeness. There are many other cafés nearby and in future I will stick to visiting them - I just thought I'd try this one for a change.

Food wasn't too bad. Very little interior seating and exterior seating doesn't look too appealing. Could do with some renovation.

Very quaint cafe in the grass market. Small and rustic reminded us of Quebec. Good full English breakfast and lovely coffee.

I live in Edinburgh just round the corner. Popped in yesterday for a large latte (take away) and received a normal sized cup for £3.95. This is half the size of a starbucks and to be honest this place is geared at tourists that don't know the difference. Tourist trap. Pure and utter greed.
