We went for a quick cup of coffee and a muffin, my sister bought a regular cup of coffee and I got a cafe latte, the muffin tasted fine, but I didn't like the taste of the latte. The staff was friendly and we were served quickly and efficiently.

Central but with very little seating. Window seats offer a great place to people watch. Good service even though the place is very busy

This coffee shop stays open until late, so it was really convenient to take a quick bite and coffee before going back to the hotel to retire after a long day touring this beautiful city.

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
