I'm going to have to come back here and try some more off their menu. Great food served swiftly is what most of us need at lunchtime and this venue ticks the boxes. Look forward to the next time.

From the outside this just looks like a typical cafe but the food is excellent. Great range of Turkish meals or lunchtime snacks

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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
