Either they are refurbish or close forever. Don't bother walking all the way there. I don't have picture but as of today is closed. We ate at the one to the left of this and it was ok

The place has relocated to Barclay Terrace and is now called Tea in the Park. The place is tiny but very homely and the owner is a nice friendly guy. He told us he is looking to reopen Le Cafe Bleu somewhere around the Bruntsfield links area. In the meanwhile the current place is very charming, food homemade and the... More

Walked here in the rain and sleet and it looks like it has closed down. To anyone going there today the coffee mill down the road towards grass market is great

Had wonderful food and personal service at this little restaurant! We were only there for breakfast, but the coffee was great and the food was delicious.

It's a true gem hidden in the alleyways of Edinburgh we went there with the family and were very pleased by the welcoming service. Haggis was yummy as well as the soup. The atmosphere is very cozy and would defiantly try it again.

We had french toast, le grand bleu and hot chocolate. All of them are amazingly tasteful. This restaurant is one of our memorable places in Edinburgh.

We were staying at the Grassmarket and saw this place at TripAdvisor and of course went there for breakfast. It turned out to be a really special little place. Run by the owner all by himself with clearly a lot of passion and love for his work. The French toast was delicious as were the coffee and the hot chocolate.... More

Nice tiny café close to the Castle. We felt at home thanks to the decoration and the really nice owner. The food is nice and tasty (vegetarian-friendly!) and made with love. Impressive selection of teas! All in all, a nice stop whenever in the day!

Small and intimate cafe with friendly atmosphere, ideally located by Edinburgh castle. Highly recommend the traditional breakfast!

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
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 royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
