Wonderful, warm store with lovely staff, various local wares and most importantly gorgeous marshmallows. There were around 10 different when we visited, from Parma Violets to Gin & Tonic with some more standard flavours in between. The marshmallows themselves are extremely delicate and melt in...More

The first is sweet and fresh, he likes long walks on the beach, but only "after eight 😉". The second gives cookies and then creams in your mouth, im not sure about him. The third is a little bit of white chocolate but he brings...More

The service was great and the shake was delicious. I'm not a big marshmallow fan but I really enjoyed the oreo marshmallows I'd purchased a few days earlier. The 90s trivia cards were also a great way to pass the time.

Easily the best milkshake we have ever tried! And the salted caramel 'donut' was delicious! Will definitely be visiting again when we're back in Edinburgh.

Hired the marshmallow lady for our wedding. She made delicious and beautiful wedding favors. They were a hit and we were so happy! Highly recommend visiting her store or using her for your next event. Try the cookies and cream!!!

I found this place by accident during the Fringe. An eccentric little cafe serving an astonishing array of marshmallows, donuts with marshmallows and ice cream ( I did not try it but I bet marshmallows feature somehow). Plus other cafe stuff. There are vegan, dairy...More

Usually when you describe a marshmallow as crunchy, it is a bad thing. Somehow , this lady balances the crunchy with the squishy and there are so many flavours to choose from.

Some of the best marshmallows I've ever had - light, airy, and they literally melt in your mouth. Crazy, inventive flavours that really translate well - it doesn't just say it tastes of rose, it really does! Irn Bru, s'mores, you name it....the flavours shine....More
