Perfectly baked potatoes with more toppings than you would ever consider putting on a potato, including haggis, greek salad, tuna salad, egg salad, and chicken masala. We were there during a mad rush, and the owner (the place appears to be a one-man-show) kept his...More

I've ordered a medium chicken coronation and I have no words for that! It was definitely one of the best baked potatoes I've ever eaten!! The staff is very friendly and the prices are good! I highly recommend it!

I went here on the basis of the TripAdvisor recommendations, and I couldn’t agree more with the other reviews. A really delicious baked potato, with generous portions and a wide choice of fillings, plus friendly service. The stream of locals and regular customers said it...More

Went here yesterday with the wife. The proprietor was really friendly and made such a lovely late lunch for us. I had a medium (the size of a small Volvo) potato with Hot Haggis. What a delight. It will spoil baked potatoes for the rest...More

Excellent tasting baked spud with all the toppings. Lots of choices to chose from. I went for the traditional baked potato with butter, cheese and hot beans on top. Nice and crisp skin on the outside, soft in the middle, just the way I like...More

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
