Stumbled on this place when at the castle ! great atmosphere ! We had Scottish afternoon tea consists of scone, jam and cream included coffee £11 was slightly overpriced but very nice .
We had soup in the cafe and it was very tasty. We were welcomed by staff on arrival. The history of the cafe is very interesting and shown on the murals on the wall. I would go to this cafe again if I was in Edinburgh.
I was here over a year ago and had some lovely sandwiches so called again this time. We had soup which as lovely and warming on a cold November afternoon but the quality of the ham in our sandwhich was not as I had remembered. A little dissapointing then and not the cheapest in town.

Went for breakfast and ordered bacon roll with scrambled egg & tea. Bacon in roll was a tiny piece of overcooked rock hard bacon, tea was weak.
