We got stuck in Edinburgh during the snow red alert. We visited a couple of times and enjoyed the hearty breakfast, soup and the delicious cheese scones. Great service and great food. We'll definitely be back the next time we visit Edinburgh.

Popped in here for tea and a scone as it looked promising from outside. Tea was weak and scone seemed undercooked and not very tasty. There are better places on the Royal Mile.More

Weak tea? Did you allow time for brewing? Perhaps you are not familiar with leaf tea as apposed to tea bags. We recommend stirring and then it needs approximately 3-4 minutes to brew so that the full flavours develop in line with the preference of...More

What lovely words, thank you. As a small family business we are always aware of the competition from large coffee chains and when customers take the time to share a good experience for others to read it makes our day,

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

Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
