You don't know what good fudge tastes like until you visited Edinburgh's Fudge Kitchen! The staff is very friendly and provides excellent customer service. We sampled fresh salty chocolate fudge, still warm! Treat yourself to a slice of fudge while visiting Edinburgh!

Insanely delicious fudge! The service was excellent, the guy that served us was very talkative and very interested in learning some Korean from my fiancee... He recommended a few of the flavors of fudge, gave us some tasters and was generally lovely. We saw some fudge being freshly prepped and were talked though what was happening/going on. After all that... More

Me and my partner love Edinburgh, we have been going at Christmas for the last three years now. The fudge kitchen was easily one of the best experiences we have had Edinburgh (and we have done a lot). The staff were very friendly, a special mention to Will, the shop manager. He made us feel very welcome and recommended some... More

We popped in to get a stocking filler for the family and was welcomed by a very friendly guy, who offered us free samples of anything we'd like to try. He also made a point of making sure we tried some of his freshly made (as in still warm) fudge. It tasted incredible. Would definitely recommend to anyone, or anyone... More

Excellent fudge with very good variety. The fellow behind the counter was quick to offer sample of the day. When i thought to have a different variety, a nice size chunk was presented and appreciated. If your a sweets lover, its a must stop.

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
