The Meadow Box is open late during the Festival season. Yippee! Great coffee and friendly happy staff even after a long day supplying tasty yummy stuff to hungry citizens and tourists. It's turning out to be a must do in Edinburgh.

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
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
