We stopped for about half an hour here to get out of the cold before the start of a tour at Mary King's Close. The tea was good, but I found the staff to be a little abrupt. From looking at other reviews, other people...More

Would not recommend due to two rude staff members, a tall male with a Spanish accent and even more so, a young female with long brown hair. Shame I had already purchased before finding this out.

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
