Came here as we wanted to try some veggie haggis. Had a veggie haggis bap and coffee and it was really tasty. Love the old wooden tables and mismatch chairs. Staff were really friendly and excellent service.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
