We stopped here for breakfast on 3 occasions and we were not disappointed with either the good food or friendly service. Note that this is a very small cafe with limited seating.

It actually is called Canongate Coffee on the window so don’t get confused. Lovely spot for a great panini and good soup. Great local home baked shortbread.

As a business owner, I value criticism as a way of highlighting areas in which we can further develop and improve. I will address your comments. "Too tiny" - we cannot make our wee, historic listed building on the Royal Mile any bigger. You walked...More

Nice and cosy place. Although a little bit tiny. Tasty sandwiches and delicious chocolate cake. Very convinient location - nearby museums and the prices aren't high. Also very friendly service.

This place was discovered by accident but so happy we did. The sandwiches where delicious and they offer student discount (with an EU student card) which was the highlight of the visit :) friendly staff
