In June we stumbled across the Coffee Mill the morning after the night before in Edinburgh.
The Cafe was very welcoming, and the staff were extremely attentive without being overbearing. All good stuff!r.
But man alive, the food (veggie and full Scottish breakfast) was outstanding. Very generous portions, and cooked to absolute perfection, couldn't fault it at all.
The coffee and tea were absolutely spot on as well. There really isn't much else to say. Nice place, ace people and great breakfasts - will definitely be back. Bravo

I cannot stand batter-fried fish, and had despaired of finding good breaded fried fish anywhere in the UK. My daughter and I were wandering around Edinburgh and she told me she had been to the Coffee Mill Cafe on her last trip and had loved it. So we went there - and was I happy we did! They had breaded fried fish on their menu - and it was simply delicious! In fact, all the food we ordered was very good. The people running it are very helpful and friendly, service is prompt, the place is extremely clean, they have a large, very clean restroom - what's not to like?!

When my son was 6 weeks old we were on the hunt for a nice child friendly cafe for a coffee and a bite to eat. Google came up with the coffee mill. Our First trip must have been good because my we man is now 19 months old and we still go back on a regular basis. Gino (The owner, and if you have been there twice you will know him by name as well) is the most welcoming guy you could ever meet. Most recently I set him a challenge to feed 20+ kiwis and aussies breakfast before an all day pub crawl. Needless to say we all left very happy and ready to face the day. The food is great and the staff are lovely. Im really not in the habit of online reviews but when you find an independently owned gem like this it just seems rude not to tell people about it.
