Check this Starbucks out if you're looking for a coffee, etc. Go upstairs! That's the cool part. Unlike any Starbucks in the United States. Old, open, very cool. From the front windows there is an amazing view of the curving adjacent street. Perfect for a...More

Can't even go up the stairs to find a seat without being shouted at incredibly loudly (which I kind of important if I want to drink in, otherwise I'd go elsewhere). So loud in fact that everyone jumped and was looking to see what's wrong....More

Excellent Starbucks. I'm a regular and we stopped here numerous times during our Edinburgh visit. It also was just around the corner from our Edinburgh Hilton. Nice seating and good views from upstairs.

It's a more quaint version of the US style Starbucks in a charming little storefront. The place was full and noisy but, since we were suffering from jet lag, it was a great place to get some coffee. Service was fast. It's located near the...More

Good relaxed place considering it's on the busy royal mile. Exactly what you'd expect in terms of food and drink from the Starbucks chain.

Starbucks, it's a chain so what can we expect? The difference could be friendly people and clean facilities perhaps. Neither or.. The standard approach and the standard dirty facilities. Charge a premium price and get it right please.

Old Town
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
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
