Very cool bar/hangout, so much to look at. Great for veggie vegans after soulful comfort food. If we lived in Edinburgh, we'd definitely be back.

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
