Quite a pleasant little café in an area which is trying desperately to move more upmarket - and just about succeeding. Main problem is that they try to cram too many people in to the available space - I feel sorry for the waitresses! Food is nice and reasonably priced but drinks are expensive. Apparently becomes a pub at night... More

A sublime macchiato told me this was a café that understands coffee. It's small but on the occasion of our visit uncrowded. We felt comfortable enough to linger over a relatively small order, not always easy in a small establishment. The bench seats along the wall are heated! Autumnal Edinburgh bliss.

Fantastic cakes, coffees, soups, sandwiches and service, and a local family run business to boot. I love it and you will too

We had been recommended this little café from some of the staff in a few other cafés and restaurants we had visited. Feeling a bit adventurous, tourists of course, we headed out toward Stockbridge and found this little treat. A family run café with a very family orientated vibe, really nice. Fantastic coffee, nice selection of cakes and pastries etc,... More
