Popped in here as a welcome change to all of the chain coffee shops nearby but wish I hadn't bothered. Hipster staff were not very attentive (despite the place being virtually empty) and the coffee was horrible. Coffee beans burnt and far too hot. The...More

I had lunch here today, sweet potato with chilli soup served with bread. A very good option, very taste. Small independent coffee place with personality. Smiling staff and very friendly service. 100% recommended.

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
