We were in Edinburgh for 3 days and we ended up visiting this wonderful cafe every day !
The staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was delicous and generous servings. My husband particularly enjoyed the Celeriac soup on our first visit and I had a tasty brie and bacon american toastie and a tasty caramel milkshake. Hot Chocolate is also recommended .

Called in here twice over the weekend, it is a tiny cafe not far from our hotel with an amazing menu.
Had the amaretto ice cream mile shake, was delicious and very filling followed by cheese toastie. Soups were all home made the chirizo, squash and manchango was to die for.
The menu was very varied and all home made, lots to choose from.
The hosts were very welcoming and when back in Edinburgh will call back in again

We visited on a Sunday afternoon for a late lunch. Fantastic baguettes, and plenty of tea! Lots of menu choice - something for everyone. Nice cosy decor and lovely and warm. The staff made this place special though. Really great relaxed friendly service. We’ll be back on our next visit to Edinburgh x

Popped in for a coffee in this compact and cute little cafe and had a delicious soup and smoothie as well! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and free wifi made for an enjoyable leisurely lunch.
