This cafe is small but an excellent discovery - the waffles are amazing! We had them with bacon, strawberries , maple syrup and cream and it was fab. The staff were extremely chirpy and helpful. Few tables though and they are quite close together. Will be back!

A local gave us the idea to go here. We loved it! Waffles were delicious and covered with toppings. One had bacon and maple syrup, they overloaded the bacon which was great because you can never have to much bacon. The other had strawberries and whip cream and bacon, and was excellent! The coffee was really good and fair priced.... More

Papii is surrounded of nice cafes in the centre of Edinburgh - so when you first see it you might not be convinced. You might be wrong! As soon as you enter, Charlotte and Matt will make you feel welcome and prepare delicious food and great coffee! What a relaxed, friendly, open and fun atmosphere!

I often rely on my fellow TA contributors when I am in a place for the first time. I start by comparing menu options then excellent/very good reviews to the terrible. When the numbers are as lopsided as these it becomes a nobrainer. I had the eggs benedict and mixed the bacon and spinach. Absolutely delicious. Eggs done to perfection... More

We were looking for somewherethat wasn't a chain have a coffee and cake before catching the bus back to the Caravan Club site and found Papii - ok we were definitely the oldies in the room but the servic could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The artisan coffee was strong and thick (delicious) and the raspberry and White... More

Busy place for brunch and I almost gave up on waiting for a seat.... Fortunately I was patient and waited... Pappi has a nice atmosphere, lovely hosts, delicious food and good prices. I had a delicious Salmon eggs Benedict and I would definitely come back!

This is a relatively new cafe in Edinburgh- opened last year. Not sure why it doesn't have its own page yet as it's very popular.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
