“Best little pie shop in Edinburgh!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Once we discovered the Pie Maker on South Bridge we wished we done so earlier! We had breakfast here several mornings in a row. Lovely, cozy place with a wide assortment of pies, , sandwiches, pastries, and coffees served up by a friendly face. Their prices, especially considering the quality, are terrific. After a holiday in Edinburgh there's so many great things and places I miss once I'm back home, this is one of those places.

“Amazing place for home mad pies!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

My oh my! It doesn't look very nice from outside....and neither from inside (the place could been cleaner) but it doesn't matter beacuse those pies are AMAZING! A lot of choice, all home made, and all really cheap. Best pie experience ever!
Oh, and the blonde girl serving us was welcoming, very nice, explaining to us the different pies.

“I would like to eat all the pies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

What can I say - it does amazing pies. I had the steak pie and can honestly say I have never ever tasted a better one. Well worth a trip!

Only criticism would be that the bar stools are way too short for the bar at the window which makes eating a bit awkward. My wife though did say that it meant the food had less of a distance to travel to get in your mouth.

“Grab a quick pie for the Royal Mile”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Easy location near the top of the Royal Mile, The Piemaker had a huge selection of pies ready to go.
This is more about the convenience, speed and fun of enjoying some take-out pies to HELP power your walk down to Holyrood Palace - why not!
