Quite a small place in the Grassmarket but nice. We ordered toasted sandwices served with a side salad. They were good but the cheese was used very sparingly and the salad was just ok. The interior is very small but adequate for us. I really...More

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
