Nice light snacks, quality coffee, unpretentious interior. New regular for trips to town. Is this 100 chars yet?

Castello Coffee may well be Edinburgh's best-kept coffee secret, tucked away just off Princes Street on Castle Street. Indeed, I walked past a couple of times with thinking to go inside, which was definitely my loss.

Castello Coffee might be small, but it packs a lot in, including excellent cakes, breakfast and lunch and some wonderful coffee. The care and love that the staff have for serving you excellent coffee is obvious to see and makes a visit to Castello Coffee a real pleasure.

This place is small, minimalist and with fab Allpress coffee. I always have a latte or a cappuccino, and they are divine. I drop past several mornings a week on my way to work. The guys are lovely, and they make their own cakes and soup. RESPECT. A few steps away from the big coffee chains and Princes Street - go on, it is worth it.

This is a small understated coffee shop serving the best presented & tastiest coffee. Recommend that you walk past the big chain coffee shops & give this a try. The guys who serve you are delightful & its an independent small business.

By far the best coffee place in Edinburgh, friendly staff and the coffee they make... It´s like heaven.
I´m regular there and my coffee has always been perfect, no matter if espresso or latte or macchiato.
Be sure to try their guest blends (every week or so is served the new one).
They also serve homemade soups and sandwiches, which both are delicious.
Location is great, when the weather is nice, there is nothing easier to take the coffee to princes street gardens, which are few steps away.
Oh, and the brownies they make, perfect :)
