I had high hopes for this place because I love sweets! The presentation is wonderful but cakes just ok. The coffee is way to hot as well. We picked up the lemon & carrot cake. Find another place.

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
