If it’s busy it must be good goes the adage. Well 2 people were serving but it still took ages to get served. Nice people, good service but they were overwhelmed. The coffee was good but not great. I wanted to kill some time before...More

The food itself was good and the service friendly but the toilets were the worst I have ever seen. A toilet that both men and women share. It was dirty, cracked and does not reflect the establishment itself front shop. The old leather tan chair...More

Nothing outstanding but fair prices, friendly staff and no hassle. A great place to sit and have a coffee while you wait for a tour leaving from the adjacent Mercat Cross.

Staff very unfriendly. Cafe filthy. I moved my tray to an empty table and the waitress gave me a look of death. Toilets were disgusting. For a prime spot in Edinburgh this is to be avoided at all costs

The tea tasted a bit weird, but I believe that's to do with Cafe Nero nationally, rather than this specific one. The staff were all very pleasant though.

Very poor gluten free choice, tables not cleared in outside area. Not good enough for The Royal Mile I am afraid.

On occasions we have to wait for a flight to leave we always go to Caffe Nero as the coffee and healthy breakfasts are always good.

Came here for a coffee while waiting to go to Real Mary King Close. Nice coffee as always but blimey,there are way too many tables squashed into a small space. Could literally put your arm around the person on the next table. I get space...More

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
