Walking along Nicholson street, coming from the city centre, I found this cafe on the left hand side. Cool and quite cheap place, I stopped for a coffee and I see some nice looking homemade scones and I didn't resist. Very good and tasty. The...More

The place gave as a warm welcome! Big handmade dishes and bakery. The quality of the products is high level and the staff is really nice and polite.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighborhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
