I had read the mixed reviews and was in two minds about organising a family brunch here. However as it was the only place in the immediate vicinity, we decided to meet there. It is a delight. Sat outside( because inside was full). Ordered at...More

great for authentic deli brunches, go on, treat yourself. Not the cheapest but possibly the finest dining near central Edinburgh. Outside seating, parkside so it's leafy and boulevard style. great food, excellent ambience, cheery staff.

I love it here, I live quite close so go very often. The coffees and cakes are amazing. The variety of cakes is great.
