Edinburgh Coffee Shops

Guide

Edinburgh is best explored on foot but, despite the city’s diminutive size, a considerable distance can be covered during a saunter through the Old Town, along the Royal Mile or around the shops on Princes Street. Fortunately, there are ample choices of cafes across the city where visitors can quench their thirst, from intimate and traditional teashops to artisan coffee houses. The familiar chains dominate the popular shopping areas, so wander into the hidden side streets and alleyways to discover characterful cafes offering a heartfelt welcome, where you can relax and experience true Scottish culture before venturing into the city once more.
