I really felt that my meal was poor value for money. I will not visit again on my next trip to Edinburgh.

“A good, clean modern cafe in an unusual setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2010

Unless you knew that the National Library of Scotland (on George IV Bridge) had a cafe you'd probably never know it was there. This clean, modern cafe opening in Autumn 2009 and serves good coffee, soup, sandwiches, etc. Television screens also give news updates. A very imaginative conversion of what was previously an underused space in the National Library's entrance foyer - worth visiting for a quick lunch. There are also often exhibitions, book signings, etc, in the foyer area.
