What people say about eating The Scottish Cafe

A lovely cafe at the heart of Edinburgh.

The waiters and waitresses are nice, service quick and prices fair. Would recommend it to everyone who wants to have a delicious coffee in a friendly environment.

Magnificent food and service

Was overwhelmed with the quality of how amazing the all day brunch was! And staff are so polite and helpful. Would highly recommend to anyone stopping off in Edinburgh and who loves amazing views of the city itself!
